Hospice Awareness Week Add $1

Hospice Awareness Week

13th-19th May 2019

At selected supermarkets and throughout our communities

The countdown is on for Hospice Awareness Week, taking place from May 13th to 19th


Awareness Week is our best opportunity to tell people about who we are and what we do to support our community. We are marking this national campaign in various ways, including our ‘Add a $1’ drive in local supermarkets, retail promotion and Hospice Cuppa community events.



Host a Hospice cuppa
If you want to support Hospice Awareness Week and help us raise much-needed funds, why not host your own Hospice Cuppa! Simply click here, fill out the form and we’ll get back in touch with everything you need. While you’re at it, encourage your friends to host a cuppa at their workplace. Everyone that hosts a Hospice Cuppa will get a fun host pack to help theme your party, plus if you’re our top fundraiser you’ll win a Dilmah prize pack worth $155!

Support our Add a $1 campaign Look out for our add a $1 campaign at local supermarkets and encourage others to give generously when asked:

New World Supermarkets:

Help us find volunteers, or be one!
We’re always on the hunt for volunteers, so if you know anyone who’d love to shake a donation bucket outside one of our stores, or at a local supermarket, please email events@harbourhospice.org.nz. Or perhaps you’d like to donate your own time? We’d love to hear from you.

Help us bust a hospice myth
Hospice Awareness Week is the perfect opportunity to bust some common myths, such as “hospice is a place where you go to die.” Hospice is so much more than that! So, if you get the opportunity to educate someone about hospice, share some facts that will help others see us in a different way.

For example:

  • Hospice cares for you in any place you call home
  • Hospice helps you live every moment
  • Hospice care is free for you and your family
  • Hospice is here for any life-limiting illness

Share us on Facebook!
Shortly you’ll start to see us promoting Hospice Awareness Week on all of our Harbour Hospice pages. Please like, comment and share with your own networks to help us spread the word.
