Fundraising

As a fundraiser for South Coast Hospice, it is both humbling and rewarding to strive towards our sustainability. My motivation is in knowing that my efforts contribute to a motivated hospice team that supports and cares for patients and their families at a time when they need it most. 

Many of our fundraising events can be enjoyed by the whole family, with lucky draw prizes and raffles.  My intention is always to provide value for the money spent, whilst insuring that we keep the expenses down. Not an easy feat in these days of rising costs!

Highlights on our fundraising calendar are Valentine and Mother’s Day Brunches and The Donkey Derby.  Sporting events are always popular, especially at Lake Eland and we are privileged to benefit from Golf Days hosted on our quality golf courses.

Meaningful International Hospice events; Voices for Hospice, a children’s fundraiser through schools, and The Tree of Light, are a must on our community’s calendar.

We, at South Coast Hospice, join together with other charities in the annual Tekkie Tax National event.

This year, 2018, we can stand proud with all Hospices in South Africa through The Comrades Marathon Amabeadibeadi Charity Division.  To be nominated as one of the 6 charities for this “the ultimate human race” for the next three years is a great opportunity to fly our palliative care flags high!  ASIJIKI!  “No turning back” is the tag for this year’s marathon.

The job of the fundraiser and team never ends. Monthly debit orders, bequests, donation of goods for our  charity shops, donations of cleaning materials and meals for the in-patient unit, and the donation of time from our volunteers are all valuable to sustaining our organisation.

Finally – Gratefulness – through this wonderful community that we serve, God blesses us daily and we sing a never-ending song of praise.
