Home About Us News Don't Miss Out - First Balclutha Dinner Club Raising Funds for Hospice!
Harcourts and the Clutha Licencing Trust have joined forces with Otago Community Hospice to host the inaugural Balclutha Dinner Club at Rosebank Lodge on September 14th to raise funds for Hospice.

Otago Community Hospice reached out to Harcourts and the Clutha Licencing Trust to support a local fundraiser for Hospice community outreach in Clutha, after having successful Dinner Clubs in Central Otago and Oamaru.

Hospice CEO Ginny Green was delighted that both entities came on board to support the event.

“Traditionally, the majority of our fundraising has happened in Dunedin City, but with our Community Services in the wider Otago region, we want to reach out to these communities to fundraise as well.

At any one time we have 15 – 20 patients on our books in the Clutha region. Our Community Care Coordinator and specialist palliative team support those who are dying in Clutha to live well and die well. We also support each patient’s network - family, carers and other health providers, which in rural areas can be quite a challenge.

The Dinner Club is a simple concept which enables communities to get involved in fundraising where any money raised goes directly towards the service in their region,” says Ms Green.

Clutha LIcencing Trust General Manager Mike Curtis says: “The Otago Community Hospice provides amazing support to our South Otago residents at a time when they need it most. I’m pleased the Clutha Licensing Trust is able to support them and the Rosebank Lodge will host what we hope will be a very enjoyable and successful fundraiser.”

Tickets include a three-course dinner, a complimentary drink and a donation to the Hospice. There will be a live auction on the night. Tickets cost $80 each and can be purchased at the Harcourts office in Balclutha, 39A Clyde St, Ph 418 1990.
