In November 2019 John died at the age of 85, leaving a third of his estate to Harbour Hospice. The reasons behind legacy gifts are deeply personal. For John, he was motivated by the death of his mother from cancer when he was a young boy. John had promised himself that when he died, he would leave a legacy that would touch the lives of children and cancer patients, far beyond his lifetime. We are incredibly grateful to John for his kindness and the long-lasting impact it will have, and are delighted to dedicate the new courtyard in his honour.
Our completed hospice will feature a training room which will be used to deliver training and education programmes for staff, volunteers and the wider healthcare community, including medical and paramedic students. It’s thanks to the generosity of the Ralph & Eve Seelye Charitable Trust, which has made a significant gift towards its completion, that this is possible.
CAROL ANN JAMES
Generous and fun in nature, Carol Ann took great pleasure from the company of her good friends and neighbours during her life, and sought support from Hospice for herself and her loved ones during her final days. In appreciation of the care she received, Carol Ann made a significant bequest to Harbour Hospice in her Will, ensuring that many others can receive specialist care and support when they need it most. We are delighted to dedicate a new family and whānau bedroom to Carol Ann in acknowledgement of her incredible gift and support of Harbour Hospice.
We are extremely grateful to the Smale family and Smales Farm for their incredible financial support of this project.

We would also like to acknowledge Greg and Felicity’s significant support of the feasibility and early project costs, which helped to launch this important project for our community.
The Smale family and Smales Farm have a long association with Harbour Hospice, and we are honoured to partner together on numerous initiatives to raise vital funds to support our service, facilities and local community. Thank you.
