A message from the Manager

We hope you are all staying warm and healthy through this winter season.

Thank you to everyone who supported our annual fundraising appeal in June. Due to the generous support from local businesses, philanthropic funds, and private donations, our “No Place Like Home” campaign raised over $28,000. These donations will help fund Hospice in the Home and ensure local people have access to our free community service when impacted by a terminal or life limiting condition.

August is a busy month for Warrnambool & District Community Hospice as we work hard in the community to raise awareness of our Hospice in the Home program. If you have been been meaning to get involved with us in some way, then this month’s newsletter is full of great ideas. Whether you volunteer, advocate, donate or follow us on social media, every action makes a difference to local people trying to achieve their wish, or the wish of a loved one to spend their final days in the comfort of home.
