Hospice Awareness Week - 18th - 24th May 2020

This week is Hospice Awareness Week!

Whilst this looks oddly different to us than other years, the purpose of this week remains the same.

In previous years you would have easily found us out in the community actively talking to others about the services we provide, at the supermarkets and The Warehouse with our fabulous sausage sizzles and donation buckets, hosting a ladies night at our Hospice shops or running a trivia night.

Covid-19 did indeed put a halt to all of these. So this year we are going with an online virtual appeal. Still bringing you the information about our service and how our organization works, with a  very soft donation ask. Please, if you are able too, consider a small donation to our service - lets collectively help raise the $7,500 which was our small target for this year's Awareness Week.

You can donate by clicking the Hospice Awareness Week picture above or on the button below, which will take you directly to our Hospice Mid-Northland donation page.

Many thanks, from your team at Hospice Mid-Northland.
