It is our pleasure to end 2018 with a sense of gratefulness of the support St Bernard’s Hospice received from our local Buffalo City Community, our volunteers, local businesses and from our National and International Stakeholders.
As everyone experiences a tough economic climate, we remain astutely aware of the sacrifices made by those who continue to support us. It is an amazing feeling when one can see that Stakeholders and individuals are acutely aware of the benefit received through Palliative Care services and that it remains absolutely crucial that our community can access these services as and when needed.
A sad farewell was said to two long serving staff members who retired this year. Cynthia Chaplin and Heather Gall made an incredible contribution to St Bernard’s Hospice and its clients in the 16 years they served the organisation. We wish them well in their new ventures and hope to still see them at Hospice functions.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all St Bernard’s Hospice staff for their contribution towards ensuring that we continue to provide quality home based palliative care to people affected by life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.
May you and your families experience the peace of Christ over the 2018 Christmas period and give the gift of love and time to those closest to you.
