Hands up for Hospice – May 2024

Hands up for Hospice is our biannual appeal campaign, that encourages supporters to organise their own fundraising events, big or small, or to make a donation. The inaugural event in 2022 raised a whopping $48,279 with events such as a midwinter swim, quiz night and movie night held by businesses and individuals alike.

This May, we are calling on you to support our bi-annual appeal Hands Up for Hospice again, backed by naming-rights sponsor NBS. Our official campaign will launch soon but we wanted you to know first.

With over $3.5M in funding shortfall, it takes a community to make a hospice happen. This May, you can join our compassionate community by getting involved in raising funds to help ensure the future of free specialist palliative care in the Nelson Tasman Region.

Hands Up for Hospice encourages people to come together to share stories, encouragement and laughter by putting on a range of events to be a part of. We are looking for people to host their own events, attend events, volunteer at planned events and spread the word about NBS Hands Up for Hospice.

There are many ways you can get involved and put your hands up for Hospice!

Some ways you could get involved in May 2024 are:

High Teas for Hospice
Get together and have fun, raise funds for Hospice Services. Acknowledge and celebrate someone you love. Hosting a High Tea for Hospice in May does not necessarily mean it has to be an actual high tea. Think of the ‘Pink Ribbon Breakfast’ concept but for your local hospice. You could host a pot luck, virtual event or theme your ‘High Tea’ such as a Mad Hatter’s picnic.

Sales Fundraising
Do you know any small businesses that want to show their support of free hospice services in the community and stand out from other businesses this May? You can donate a portion of your sales to Nelson Tasman Hospice – a business of any size can make a difference!

Heave for Hospice
Heave for Hospice is a friendly competition (in both the physical heave and in fundraising!) between corporates and sporting groups. Heave for Hospice offers an opportunity to engage your team, showcase your brand and celebrate a team or a team members family who has been supported by Nelson Tasman Hospice.

Host for Hospice
Our compassionate community raise money for our service at all kinds of events throughout the year. Use your unique talents and creativity to get involved and put your Hand Up for Hospice this May!

If you would like to get involved or know someone who would, please reach out. May will be an exciting month for Nelson Tasman Hospice and we would love you to participate.
