This year we need to fundraise $2.4 million to maintain our hospice service. Over and above the fundraising, we rely on the community donating a range of goods to help our hospice run at the highest standard. This wishlist is a tangible way for you to help us, and we appreciate each and every item. 

Right now, we are focussed on our Oamaru Hospice Hub, which we aim to open in November 2018. The hub will include a hospice shop, spaces for patient appointments and counselling sessions, an area for training and education, and staff offices. It will be an incredible resource for the North Otago community. The building has a vast wishlist, so anything you can help us out with would be greatly appreciated!
