Tour Aotearoa

Gordon - charity ride_opt

On February 21st 2016, Nelsonian Gordon Sloane will start “Tour Aotearoa”, a 3000 kilometre cycle ride from Cape Reinga to Bluff.

While this ride is not a charity ride, Gordon has decided to use it as a charity fundraiser for the Nelson Tasman Hospice. He is asking for people to make a donation to the Nelson Tasman Hospice if he can complete this length of New Zealand ride in under 30 days.  To find out more about this remarkable challenge, click here

Tree of Remembrance

Trees of Remembrance 2015

The Tree of Remembrance is an opportunity to remember someone special in the lead up to Christmas.  Everyone who makes a donation will receive a card to write their personal message on, they can then place it on the dedicated remembrance tree that is in each store.  All funds raised in Nelson will remain in our community to support the Nelson Tasman Region Hospice, and enable us to keep our services free of charge to everyone who needs us.

Local GP joins the Board

Dr Shaun McKenzie-Pollock

“Being a family GP means being with people at the biggest moments in their lives: births and deaths. New hospice board member Shaun McKenzie-Pollock says those are the most rewarding times in working with patients and their families.

Dr McKenzie-Pollock appreciates his job in making someone’s passing more comfortable, ensuring they retain as much dignity as possible and the family is kept informed. Dr McKenzie-Pollock, who has his practice at Nelson Family Medicine and has post-grad training in sports and obstetrics, recently joined the Nelson Tasman Hospice board, which oversees the governance of the hospice.

Dr McKenzie-Pollock says it’s important to have a doctor – and a family doctor at that – helping to oversee the hospice. He’s pleased to be working with his fellow board members to care for Nelson and Tasman people in their last years. “I think it’s a great organisation,” he says. “Hospice care is the ultimate in community-based primary care for families and people at the end of their life.”
