Home About Us News Otago Community Hospice Cancels March 5th Street Appeal
With Otago at Level 2, Otago Community Hospice has decided to cancel its annual Street Appeal.

This event, which typically raises the Hospice around $35,000 each year, is only possible because of the generous time given by nearly 500 volunteers around the region.

“Given the situation, we felt that it was important we keep our volunteers and our community safe, and that means not having our volunteers and their buckets on the streets and in the super markets. It’s just not possible to maintain solid social distancing in this situation,” says Hospice CEO Ginny Green.

“Obviously, it’s gutting to have to pull the plug, but we know that our community will rally to support us in other ways. We are asking those who might typically put money in the bucket to consider donating via our website. https://otagohospice.co.nz/donate

“I want to extend our thanks to all those volunteers who put their hands up to collect, and we look forward to 2022 when hopefully we will be in the clear to run the Street Appeal.”
