“As a fundraising team, we have been raising funds to extend our existing In-Patient Unit in New Market Park in order to cope with the increasing need for palliative care in our communities. After exploring several extension opportunities and possibilities over the past two years, which all ultimately fell short of meeting our needs in terms of priority and/or cost, infrastructure, location and other practicalities, we have finally found a solution that suits us in every way – a donation of a 450sqm Park Home that will be renovated and added on to our existing In-Patient Unit allowing for an additional 12 rooms,” Marietjie explains.
All funds raised over the past two years towards the extension of our In-Patient Unit, as well as funds raised from the golf day, will be directed towards the renovation project.
“We are looking for players, as well as both hole and prize sponsors. The cost per player is R500, which includes halfway and the prize-giving dinner. Hole sponsorships range from R2 000 to R5 000,” says Marietjie.
As an NPO (Non-Profit Organization), Stepping Stone Hospice is financially dependent, to a large degree, on the generosity of individuals and the business fraternity to continue with the palliative care services they offer to patients and families facing the challenges of life-limiting illnesses.
