As you may be aware the Health Service is going through reforms that are designed…
Nelson Tasman Hospice is a free service for the people of Nelson Tasman, but it comes at a cost.
While we receive 52% of our operating costs via funding from our DHB, we have an annual shortfall of around $3 million to be fundraised. We rely on the community to make donations, bequests, shop at our Hospice Shops and help us fundraise.
Hands up for Hospice is a new appeal campaign, beginning 16th May and running into June that encourages supporters to organise their own fundraising events, big or small, or to make a donation. “The vision for Hands up for Hospice is to be an annual appeal that shines a spotlight on the amazing specialist service we provide through
out the Nelson Region and get as many people involved as possible. We would love to see it grow to where there are schools, book clubs, quiz nights and workplace fundraisers. Each month between 220-260 people throughout the community are looked after by our service, and so our reach throughout the region is extensive” Donna Ching-Tregidga explains.
