Pub Charity Donates Over $550,000 To New Hospice Build

Nelson Tasman Hospice has just received a huge boost to its building fund for a new facility in Stoke.  Pub Charity has donated $566,366 to the capital fundraising campaign for the new building which is due to be completed in early 2019.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have been donated this generous amount from Pub Charity which is a welcome boost to our fundraising campaign,” Nelson Tasman Hospice Chief Executive Frans Dellebeke said.
“It will go a long way to help us achieve our target,” he added.  The total estimated cost of the new home for hospice is $11.5 million.

The hospice is contributing $7.5 million to the project and that leaves $1.5 million to raise through grants and in-kind donations on the build and $2.5 million from the community.
Grants donated so far total over $800,000 which includes the recent announcement of $250,000 from the Rata Foundation.

Martin Cheer, Chief Executive of Pub Charity said: “Pub Charity works with its partner hospitality venues in Nelson, Richmond and Motueka to raise funds for the local community and in particular those organisations looking to support the most vulnerable.
“There can be no more challenging time for individuals and their families than needing Hospice services and we are pleased to be able to help in providing new facilities for the Nelson/Tasman district,” he added.

The hospice cares for over 155 patients at any one time with most being looked after in their own homes.
The design for the new hospice includes 10 patient units, consulting rooms, space for families to spend time together, as well as outdoor areas. It will also include storage for the hospice equipment that is used in the community.
