Victoria women aim assistance towards Hospice

100+ Women Who Care Victoria provide $26,200 to Victoria Hospice

100+ Women Who Care Victoria recently raised $26

Victoria Hospice is the latest beneficiary from 100+ Women Who Care Victoria, receiving $26,200.

The growing group of generous women, whose members each donate $100, meet for one hour, four times a year. Together, they select a local charity or not-for-profit organization to receive an immediate, direct and significant donation. To date, the organization has donated over $100,000 to the Victoria community.

“We are thrilled that Victoria Hospice will benefit from this inspiring group of women who are dedicated to making a difference in our community” said Natasha Benn, Victoria Hospice director of fund development. “With nearly 50 per cent of Victoria Hospice’s program costs funded by donations, this money will go directly to our efforts to provide the best end-of-life care for our patients and their families.”

Victoria Hospice supports thousands of people in the community annually.  Victoria Hospice has a 17-bed inpatient unit, and provides crisis intervention for people dying at home through the Palliative Response Team, as well as grief and bereavement counselling following the loss of a loved one.

“The care given before, during and after death can never be measured but all of those deeds will always be etched in my heart. I am truly grateful and will continue to advocate, within the community, for Victoria Hospice” said Jan Willoughby, the 100+ Women Who Care member who nominated Victoria Hospice at the first quarterly meeting of the 2015/16 campaign.

100+ Women Who Care Victoria is designed to make a positive and significant effect on the community by bringing together close to 300 women in Victoria who care about local community causes and who are committed to community service. For more information, visit www.100womenvictoria.com.
