The Toowoomba Hospice will start its Festive Season this Sunday 28th November at the Hospice in O’Quinn Street. Chairman Graham Barron OAM said the Hospice is celebrating the Festive Season with carols and lighting of the Christmas tree.
The Toowoomba Hospice has been providing Palliative Care Services to the Lockyer Valley, Toowoomba and Darling Downs Communities since July 1st 2003. “We are excited to be able to celebrate our 7th Christmas and we want to thank the Community as a whole from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us so we can provide Palliative and Respite Care for those with a terminal illness especially at this time of the year” said Mr Barron. “We are having Christmas carols here at the Hospice from 5pm, Toowoomba Municipal Band will be playing, High Altitude Harmony will lead the singing accompanied by the students from St Anthony’s Primary School, there will be food and drinks on sale as well, so bring the family, a blanket or chair and kick off the Christmas season with us here at the Toowoomba Hospice”.
Mr. Barron wants to reassure all those who attend on Sunday that the ‘Big Fella’ in the red suit will be coming in from the North Pole for a quick visit. “I have had our promotions and fundraising manager Mark Munro on the phone to the North Pole coordinating a special visit from Santa and I am pleased to say he is on his way and will arrive at 6pm via a BIG RED TRUCK!!!”
