Singing for hospice

The Nelson Tasman Hospice received another financial boost last week.

Members of the Nelson Bays Harmony Chorus were on hand to deliver the cheque for $2800 to Nelson Tasman Hospice marketing and fundraising manager Paul McIntyre.

The donations came from funds raised from a concert at the All Saints Church auditorium on May 19. About 250 people packed the church for the performance.

Carol Brown says the group has been together for over twenty years, singing unaccompanied barbershop-style songs from the 1920s till today.

“A lot of members of our group have a personal connection to hospice and we wanted to raise money for the new facility.”

Paul says the Hospice are still looking to raise $1.5 million and every bit helps as they look to open the new facility in March, 2019.
