Cranford Hospice Street Appeal 2019

Thursday 28 to Saturday 30 March

On any given day, we touch the lives of over 200 Hawke’s Bay husbands and wives, sons and daughters, friends, whânau, neighbours and colleagues.

It’s likely that someone close to you has benefited from one of the almost 24,000 personal contacts we make each year, by phone, in the home, or within our inpatient unit.

We are Cranford Hospice and next week, we’re asking you to Paint the Bay Orange.

From Thursday 28 to Saturday 30th March 2019, 400 of our amazing volunteers will be collecting donations on Hawke’s Bay streets. We’re also encouraging workplaces, schools and community groups to dress in their best orange outfits, hold a mufti day or a morning tea, and collect for Cranford Hospice. If you'd like to find out more about how you can help support us, email us here.

What does your support mean to us? So much. It allows us to provide compassionate and quality hospice care for those living with a life-limiting condition and their families in our community, when and where it’s needed, tailored to the individual and his or her loved ones, and at no charge to the patient.

Why is demand growing? With a growing and ageing population, and patients living longer with more complex medical problems, we need your support to be able to continue providing our free specialist palliative services for generations to come. In 2019, we need to raise more than $3 million to ensure our services remain free to our patients.

Why orange? It’s one of our Cranford colours. And it’s on our $5 note – with well over 60,000 households in the Bay - imagine the difference you can make if each home donated $5! Orange is also the colour of encouragement – something our dedicated community and family support teams, doctors and nurses give wholeheartedly each and every day to Hawke’s Bay families and whanau.

We’d love your help. Paint the Bay Orange. One day you or your family may need us.

You can donate securely online here, or email us to receive a collection bucket. Print a poster for your workplace here.

Thank you so much for your support.
