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.
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!
