COVID-19 Implications to our Fundraising

Hospice Shop 

Our charity shop at 66 Peel Street is now closed for the foreseeable future. We are no longer accepting donations. Please continue to put aside your good quality donations and bring them in when we reopen. 

Thank you all for being such loyal supporters and donors of the shop. We know many of you are regular customers and we look forward to having you back in store in the future. 


All upcoming events have been cancelled or postponed. However, we still urgently need your support. We rely on over $350,000 dollars in fundraising every year to support the work we do. With the closure of our shop and cancellation of our major fundraising events, we need your help. If you can give, please support us with a donation here. 

Your support is vital to continue hospice care in the Gisborne Tairāwhiti community. We are only partially government-funded and need your help to keep our services free of charge to all who need it.  There are a lot of great ways you can help.
