Our supporters
We are incredibly grateful to all Trusts, individuals, businesses, and community groups who have so generously supported this project. Below we give special thanks to those who have given significant gifts.

Michael Keenan

Michael Keenan was passionate about Hospice and was one of our most engaged and committed Day Group volunteers. He left a substantial bequest which has helped us boost a variety of projects, including his beloved Day Group programme and specialist training opportunities. Michael’s generous contribution to our redevelopment project will have permanent recognition with a dedication of the new Day Centre, where patients, carers and family members will be welcomed for essential support programmes.
Norah Hamblin Memorial Trust
Nurse, volunteer, donor and philanthropist, Norah Hamblin, has made an enormous and lasting contribution to our Hospice, and now her legacy will live on with a special dedication set to stand proud in our new nurses’ station at North Shore. Norah died in 2013 on her 99th birthday, leaving a significant bequest to Hospice and funds to establish the Norah Hamblin Memorial Trust. The Trust’s gift to our redevelopment project will be commemorated with a permanent dedication in honour of the inspirational woman Norah Hamblin was, and her admirable contribution to nursing and palliative care.

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.


We are extremely grateful to the Smale family and Smales Farm for their incredible financial support of this project.

We also deeply appreciate Greg’s involvement as a key member of our project team, providing voluntary expert advice on our Shea Terrace Development Committee and Project Control Group. 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.
