Thank you to everyone who purchased a limited edition bauble or made a donation in 2020, your generosity is so appreciated by everyone using hospice services in our communities. The total raised by our staff and customers since 2014 exceeds $5 million, cementing this as the most successful and largest fundraising campaign in the history of hospices nationally. All of the $5 million donated over this time has gone into providing palliative care free of charge in the communities in which the funds were raised
For our whanau at Farmers, thank you doesn’t seem adequate as we reflect on the phenomenal total raised from our 2020 campaign. I am once again humbled and blown away by the amount you raised to support all hospices across Aotearoa New Zealand. 2020 was a challenging year for hospice as health care providers with the response to COVID-19 and I know it was equally as challenging for you in the retail sector. What this record breaking total shows is that despite how hard the year was people remained compassionate, grateful and generous and you gave them a way to do that by being a fundraising ambassador for hospice in the lead up to Christmas. Thank you and please know that every patient, family member, staff member and volunteer at hospice really does appreciate your efforts. You have made a difference to the lives of many.
Arohanui to you all
