Nanaimo Community Hospice thankful for support received recently

Nanaimo Community Hospice received quite a bit of support around the holiday season and is expressing its thanks.

City of Nanaimo workers from Beban Park stopped by with many items for use in the hospice’s various palliative and bereavement programs.

Wellington Secondary School and sponsors were able to make a donation thanks to a Movember fundraiser.

Breze Salon and Day Spa made a donation of $1,000 toward the work of hospice in the community.

Regional District of Nanaimo Transit stopped in with a cheque for $453, and what’s more, the RDN Transit representatives who delivered the cheque did so dressed as Santa Claus and an elf.

Nanaimo Community Hospice supports those who are dying or living with advancing illness, as well as helping with bereavement.
