Join us to help build your hospice

We have an exciting opportunity to build a new home for Cranford at Chesterhope in Pakowhai, that will meet the needs of the people of Hawke’s Bay, now and in the future.

 

Cranford Hospice supports 200 people living with palliative care needs each day, in their own home, over the phone, or in our in-patient unit – from Mahia in the North to Takapau in the South. By as early as 2025, we will need to support another 500 Hawke’s Bay patients and their families each year. With the support of our community, we have an opportunity to build a new home that will be better for patients and whānau and provide a purpose-built space to deliver our holistic model of care. We’ve been humbled by early support from key supporters and trusts. However, we now need the whole community to get behind us and help finish what we’ve started.

Our pathway

Our urgent need

Cranford Hospice is facing a challenge. Our current building based at Knight Street, Hastings, is no longer fit-for-purpose due to its age and design, and the expanding need for palliative care services in Hawke’s Bay. By as early as 2025, we will need to support another 500 Hawke’s Bay patients and their families each year.

We’re already feeling the impact of this unprecedented population growth and aging in our community.

How is it funded?

The estimated cost of the project is $14.9 million. We know it is a lot of money, but we are confident the people of Hawke’s Bay will pledge their support to bring this project to life.

The project is funded through a significant contribution from our Foundation and a capital fundraising campaign.

We’ve been humbled by early support from key supporters and trusts. However, we now need the whole community to get behind us and help finish what we’ve started.

Your support is crucial for the success of this urgent project. Join us by donating today to help build your hospice.

“The ‘New Cranford’ at Chesterhope is an opportunity for our generation to build an incredible community asset for our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren”.
