North Haven is supported by a wonderful community who help us in many ways.

With the support of local sponsors, businesses, individuals, community groups  and volunteers we aim to meet our annual funding shortfall via a range of fundraising activities including events, Community Grant applications and Planned Giving.

Our Fundraising and Communications team works closely with our community to create a greater awareness of hospice services within our community through storytelling using a range of communications and media, fundraising and community events. 

Shorts for Hospice 2018

Thanks to our wonderful team at ANZ Whangarei for their support on 6 April with our Shorts for Hospice Appeal around town.

Special thanks also to our volunteer collectors, all the businesses who kindly permitted us to collect inside and outside their stores and the others who played along on the day by wearing their shorts and challenging their work mates. Keep an eye on this space as we will be posting photos this week of some of the teams who lined up for the morning tea shout.

Kowhai & Koru...the heart of North Haven Hospice.

 Memory Trees 2017

In December 2017 our Hospice Memory Trees sparkled all over town and with the assistance of Morris and Morris who generously contributed $1 for each $2 donated raised more $21,000. Thanks to our 'army' of incredible volunteers for being there at the trees at this time of the year, to the many businesses who hosted the trees in their front entrances and all those who so generously donated again this year.

Farmers at Christmas

In December our local Whangarei Farmers team, as part of the National 'Caring Connections in our  Community' and Tree of Remembrance campaign raised $16, 679.78  through donations and the sale of Christmas baubles in their store. The baubles were limited editions and are produced each year for sale exclusively in Farmers stores throughout the country. An amazing effort by Farmers on behalf of Hospices across New Zealand and in particular Farmers Whangarei. We are very humbled.

 Girls' Club House Tours 2017

In November 2017 the Girls' Club House Tours raised an astounding $38,000 for Hospice which  will greatly assist us with refurbishing and making the interior of our base a more pleasant environment for patients and their families and visitors and also the staff who are based here. THANK YOU to our amazing Girls' Club and to all who supported the event.
