Dilmah: supporting hospices in New Zealand since 1997

Dilmah: supporting hospices in New Zealand since 1997

Green is the new black – in tea that is, and we need your help to raise $20,000.

Our long term supporters at Dilmah tea are currently donating 50 cents from each pack sold in their green tea range to Hospice NZ. The goal is to sell 40,000 packs of tea – so do try it!

2014 is the seventeenth year that Dilmah tea has been supporting hospices throughout New Zealand donating over 5 million tea bags during that time.

Since 1997 Dilmah has donated all the tea each hospice service in New Zealand could need each and every year.  Due to this generous donation, we are able to make the highest quality tea available to people and their families, friends and visitors, staff and volunteers.

The process of making a cup of tea and the comforting conversations that can occur over a hot cup of tea, can be relaxing and therapeutic, no matter the time of day or night. 

This year the total number of tea bags donated will reach approximately 5 million – a testament to the commitment the entire Fernando family has to hospice in New Zealand.

Thank you to our friends at Dilmah, your donation has been greatly appreciated over the past decade and a half.
