Mary Potter Hospice street appeal this weekend

Bulletin Editor from Karori Lions Club

This situation also applies to many other sites where this collection was to have taken place on Friday and Saturday and is likely to have a serious impact on the Hospice's fund-raising this year. I understand that collecting on the street will still be allowed, but the uncertainty of the weather, and the “vulnerability” of many collectors, will mean that only one or two people will be out in Karori.
Many of us have personal experience of the value of the palliative care offered by the Hospice at no cost to friends and family, so I am urging my contacts to consider making a donation to MPH though their website donations page (marypotter.org.nz...) if they are unable to track down a collector on the street, and to pass on this appeal to their friends as well. Those who are outside the area served by Mary Potter, or who have their own favourite palliative care provider, please consider making a donation to another of those organisations doing such great work – they are all having to face up to additional problems brought on by Covid-19.

(Current NZ money will also be gratefully received 😊 )
Please place them in the newly refurbished “Heads up for Kids” box at the Karori New World exit – to convert old money and foreign money to real NZ$$.
The proceeds from this nation-wide Lions programme are used to provide a helping hand for young people to engage in an experience or activity that will assist their academic, physical, creative, and leadership development to enable them to establish life goals, follow their dreams, and reach their full potential.
Activities like: Outward Bound, Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoor Pursuits Centre, Spirit of Adventure and various other New Zealand based educational and leadership programmes.
Please have a rummage at home to unearth these silent treasures – you’ll have fun doing it!
