Annual Appeal

On any given day, we touch the lives of over 150 Hawke’s Bay husbands and wives, sons and daughters, friends, whānau, neighbours and colleagues. The youngest person we’re caring for is 1 and the oldest is 101 years old.  Please show your support for our Annual Appeal. Together, we can give people the chance to treasure every moment.

Each year we need to fundraise more than $3 million to ensure our services remain at no cost to our patients and families, and that’s why we need people to show their support for Cranford Hospice during this Appeal.

The month will conclude with the Annual Street Appeal from Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th March.  Nearly 400 volunteers will be donning orange aprons and holding collection buckets on the streets of Hawke’s Bay.  Please show your support by popping a donation in their bucket – every dollar really does count!

Ways you can support this March

Workplaces, schools and community groups are invited to “Go Orange for Cranford” and fundraise for us.  We have some great resources to help you for your event!

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Go Orange for Cranford. Have a mufti day for a gold coin donation.  If you don’t have orange, wear something pre-loved from one of our Cranford Hospice Stores!
  • Support local. Invite customers to donate at the till or donate a % of sales for a day.
  • Feeling brave? Go bold with a sponsored head shave or sky dive.
  • Got creative flair? Show off your skills with an arts and crafts sale or fancy-dress party.
  • Style guru? Get out your glad rags for a swap shop, fashion show or pamper night.
  • Burn some energy? Break a sweat with a cycle challenge, fun run or marathon.
  • Host with the most? Throw a cocktail evening, dance party or dinner party.
