Answering cry from the heart
Friday was Tony Barnett’s last day at Nelson Tasman Hospice. In a week or two, he’ll pack up and drive his campervan out of Nelson, to Picton, sail across the water, and take a few days to drive up the North Island to Auckland. The time behind the wheel will give him the chance to say goodbye.

Long service award for Hospice Pearly Queen
When Nelson’s very special Pearly Queen, Shirley Miles came in to give us another $1,000 from her fundraising at the Market, we took the opportunity to present her with a rather overdue 10 yr Long Service Award.
Over this time Shirley has raised over $120K for Hospice from her Pearly Queen activities. What an amazing person – Go Shirley!
Pictured with Shirley are Volunteer Manager Mary Garner, Board Secretary Dave Hector and Trust office administrator Sandy Taverner.
