May 2014 - Newsletter
FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER’S DESK
Welcome, Howick Hospice friends, to our first newsletter of 2014. It’s always a pleasure and a privilege to share with you, all our latest news. Our new financial year got off the ground on 01 April with a flourish. I am happy to report that we finished our previous financial year with a fair surplus in hand owing to both the commendable vigilance of staff members with regards to expenditure, and the generosity of our community – we received several bequests, one of which was extremely large. We are always overwhelmed at the kindness extended to us by our community and I would like to offer our grateful thanks to you all, for sponsorships, donations (both monetary and items for the shop) and bequests, and for continued support at our fundraising and PR events. Thanks too must also go to Community Chest, Lotto, Tias Arms (USA), FNB, Sugar Association of SA, Hospice of Siouxland (USA) and the Department of Social Development for their continued support of our Hospice service. Another vote of thanks must go to the Mandela Marathon organizers who very kindly donated R50 000 to our organization in 2013. As it is increasingly difficult to raise funds in the present economic climate, we are grateful for everything that comes our way.
