In 2017, we will celebrate Hospice Awareness Week from 15 - 21 May. Throughout the week, we hold a number of events where we hope to raise some of the $2.1 million we need to bridge the gap between the income we receive from the Southern District Health Board and what it costs to run the hospice programme. One of these events will be our Annual Street Appeal on Friday 19 May where we hope to raise in excess of $40,000. Details of other events will be finalised closer to the time.
In 2016, we raised more than $100,000 during Hospice Awareness Week and we're hoping to do even better in 2017!
