The hospice requires approximately $500,000 a year for the
community to operate annually. This is the shortfall between the
Government funding available and the level of care that we believe
our patients deserve.

Donations in Kind
The hospice needs money primarily to cover ongoing operational
expenses. For this reason we much prefer gifts of money which can
be used to pay for essential costs.
However, some supporters have items of value which they would like
to give the hospice e.g. jewellery, artwork, furniture or
vehicles. People are urged to
contact the Fundraising and Events Co-ordinator to
discuss these gifts in advance.
The hospice runs a variety of promotional and fundraising events
during the year.
Many of our supporters choose to organise their own event or
activity to raise money for the hospice. This is a fun and
valuable way to support a good cause. The Fundraising and Events
Co-ordinator can provide help and guidance and should be
approached at the start of planning any event.
