December 2015 - Newsletter


We are coming to the end of another year and it always amazes me how time flies! Perhaps this is more noticeable at my age!

Sharon, Charlotte and I attended the KZN Hospice Association meeting in Durban yesterday. It was good to get together with the representatives of the other KZN Hospices and to exchange news and ideas. Our Chairlady is character of note and leads us in an enlightened way. It was also good for me to share some time with Sharon and Charlotte away from the pressures of the office.

We are most fortunate to have members of staff who are dedicated to Howick Hospice and who carry out their duties in exemplary fashion - ably led by Sharon, our General Manager. On behalf of the Board I thank every member of our staff for their diligence and attention to their duties. To Sharon our thanks for her efficiency and co-operation in leading our organisation. Her business acumen is of the highest standard and, as a Board, we are able to place our trust in her with the utmost confidence.

Without our volunteers we would not be able to cope with the myriad tasks which they undertake for us not only on a regular basis, but also for our various events. Thank you one and all for your efforts which are very much appreciated.

It remains for me to wish all our donors, friends and acquaintances the Compliments of the Season and Peace, Good Health and Prosperity in the New Year.
