Some chartities and community organisations exist for a reason that many of us don't want to think about. A time when you and your family may need support the most. A time of loss and grief. A time of transition, and sometimes a time of fear, pain and sadness. A time that some families dread but a time that some families can deliver amazing strength and support to loved ones.
Hospice is one of those organisations. They collectively deliver a range of services that most of us put to the backs of our minds, until confronted with the harsh realities of needing them when our family circumstances reach a crossroads. Hospice heavily relies on donations and it's Hospice Shops to generate the funds to enable it to continue to deliver valuable Palliative Care and community support.
The Z Rutherford division of Z Bowater Motors are very pleased to be able to contribute $1,000 towards the continued delivery of services by Hospice. Chris Bowater, Z Bowater Motors CEO made comment at the presentation "Hospice really strikes a chord in Nelson and Tasman, but so few of us actually realise exactly the depth of work and care they deliver in the region. We are so proud we can support them"
John Peters, chairman of the Nelson Tasman Region Hospice Trust was excited to be on the receiving end of the donation. They receive 62% of their funding from the government, so every dollar donated really counts, "whether it's $10 or $10,000 we make the absolute most of it"
