More than $56,000 was donated to Harbour Hospice at Farmers department stores before Christmas. Shoppers donated whole-heartedly to Farmers’ Trees of Remembrance and bought the iconic Hospice baubles in the North Shore and Silverdale Farmers’ stores.
Throughout the three Harbour Hospice communities, shoppers donated a further $30,575 at our Trees of Remembrance in malls and shopping centres. This is the sixth year that Farmers has raised funds for hospice nationwide. To date they have generated more than $4.2m to help keep hospice services free of charge. The Farmers team also worked as ambassadors for our services, helping the community better understand the work we do. Harbour Hospice Chief Executive Jan Nichols says, “The enthusiasm and commitment from all staff and the people within each of our communities has contributed to this amazing result, thank you so much.”
