The time behind the wheel will give him the chance to say goodbye.  Read more http://www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/our-people/70711694/nelson-tasman-hospice-chaplain-tony-barnett-faces-new-challenge-after-career-dedicated-to-others

Long service award for Hospice Pearly Queen

Pearly Queen_opt(2)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.
