 Dust those crazy shorts off and get into a fun day with your team on Friday 6 April.

 Winners of last years event - The 'team' from The Orchard, Northland Inc. & Chamber of Commerce

Whats happening on the day ?

The SHORTS FOR HOSPICE APPEAL kicks off across the greater Whangarei area on 6 April. Our Annual Appeal helps us to raise funds for and awareness of hospice services in our community.

On the day we encourage locals of all ages to get their BIG, LITTLE & LOUD SHORTS out for the day and to challenge their friends  and colleagues to have fun day together, to learn more about their local Hospice and its operations.

Shorts for Hospice happens in many different ways around New Zealand. We like to keep our event fun and inclusive so we don't charge an entry fee. By registering to play on the day you automatically go in the draw to win a morning tea shout for your team or another team nominated by you (no larger than x 25 people).

Over the past few years we have received amazing support from local cafes and businesses around town and also Kiwi North, who have all donated prizes to the different categories. This year we would like them all to join in the fun and play along too. We are sure that those who have won prizes in the past are all very grateful to these businesses for their generous donations.

Prizes this year are restricted to the main morning tea shout (which is organised and baked especially for you by the team at North Haven) because we think that your reward is having fun together !

Thanks for supporting us each year.
