The Nelson Tasman Hospice- The gift that keeps on growing

The new Nelson Tasman Hospice facility is on track for completion in early 2019 with staff and patients set to move in during March.

The total cost of the new hospice is $11.5 million. The hospice is contributing $7.5 million to the project and that’s left $4 million to raise.

$2 million of that has been raised which leaves $2 million to go. Part of trying to raise the remaining amount is through a Trees for Hospice campaign.

The gift that keeps on growing

The Nelson Tasman Hospice  is reaching out to community minded businesses, organisations or individuals who might like to support the project by sponsoring a tree in what will be the new and beautifully landscaped hospice garden.

What’s involved

There are $200 and $500 options, or for a significant donation of $1,000 or $5,000 you can choose one of the fabulous big specimen trees to put a plaque on.  In return for this support, each business that sponsors a tree will receive an inscription plate that will be on display in the garden for a minimum of 15 years, a commemorative certificate to acknowledge their generous support and an invitation to a special garden opening event.

Check out for more details.
