Gifts in Celebration

Birthdays, weddings and graduations are all a cause for celebration! If gifts aren't your thing but your friends and family still want to celebrate with you, how about suggesting a gift to support Albany Community Hospice?

To make fundraising for us even easier, we've partnered with Everyday Hero to give you the ability to create your own online fundraising page. In just minutes you can build and customise your page, then start sharing the link with friends, family and colleagues inviting them to make a donation. Every donation is then recorded on your fundraising page along with a message of support from your donors.

Create a Tribute

Making a donation in memory of a loved one or friend is a meaningful way of 'celebrating' their life.

Many families have supported Albany Hospice by encouraging donations in lieu of flowers at their loved one's funeral. We have now partnered with Everyday Hero to enable families to create an 'In Memory' fundraising page for the Hospice. Family and friends can make a donation lieu of flowers and leave a message of remembrance. It is a special gift that supports those in our local community that need the care and services of Albany Hospice, whilst honouring the memory of your loved one.

Create an 'In Memory' tribute and invite friends and family to make an online donation to Hospice.

OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE
NEW HOSPICE

The gala opening of our new hospice was held on the 1st April with an Open Day on the 2nd. Thank you to all the nurses, volunteers and supporters that put in so much effort to make this successful. We really did set the town buzzing with our beautiful facility.

COMMUNITY GENEROSITY IS AMAZING!

One of the most rewarding aspects of being Chair for Albany Community Hospice has been the opportunity to meet so many local people who are willingly giving whilst living. Philanthropy can be in many forms – giving of time, effort and money. All are equally valued by us at Albany Community Hospice.

This year we have been grateful recipients of cash donations from individuals, families and community groups. Examples of giving include a local Mahjong group holding a games day with players from across the Great Southern getting together – they had some good games, lots of fun and also raised funds for Hospice. Thank You! A family, whose loved one had been an end-of-life  guest at Hospice , generously requested donations to hospice instead of flowers.

The Albany Light Opera and Theatre Company offered  50 tickets to their final dress rehearsal – excellent entertainment and a good fundraiser too!
