War Widows Continue To Support Hospice

The Toowoomba Hospice was a lucky recipient last week when 3 lovely ladies from the War Widows Guild of Australia (Qld) Inc. Toowoomba Sub Branch arrived with a cheque for $1,456.00.

War Widows Guild President Mrs Helen Strange OAM said the ladies have been supporting the Hospice for 13 years “We have been involved with the Hospice even before it opened their doors on the 1st July 2003. We have been able to donate over $20,000 during this time being proceeds from our annual Tombola and multi draw raffles morning tea”

Toowoomba Hospice Chairman Graham Barron said the Hospice has a wonderful relationship with clubs and community groups in Toowoomba “We need to be out there networking and promoting the wonderful work our staff and volunteers provide to those who come and stay with us and their family. This is a great way to let community groups and club know what we do and because of this they continue to support us today and the Ladies from the War Widows are no exception”

Whilst the Toowoomba Hospice receives some funding from the Government and some from Private health funds they still need to raise $832,000 from the community, $ 120,000.00 kindly comes from Toowoomba’s Pureland Learning College and the rest ($712,000.00) is made up from donations and fundraising events.

The Toowoomba Hospice is located in Harristown on the Corner of Fifth Avenue and O’Quinn Street, and provides quality care in partnership with the community for those with a terminal illness.  For more information about the Hospice please go to their new website at www.toowoombahospice.org.au
