Flares for 40 Years

July 4th, 2019

Fundraise for Mary Potter Hospice – 70s style!

This year is Mary Potter Hospice’s 40th birthday, and we’re harking back to 1979 – the year when Mary Potter Hospice was gifted to the people of Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti to be run as a community Hospice.

Sign up to host your own Flares for 40 Years fundraising event for the Hospice. Be it a retro movie night, retro pot luck dinner, retro baking at the office… In our Flares for 40 Years Handbook, we’ve put together a bunch of ideas, information and resources of how you can organise your very own fundraising event.

Our Chief Executive Brent Alderton and Board Chair Andrea McCance pose in some retro fashion (pictured above) and our special guests Sir Bill English and Jo Seagar have put together their favourite retro recipes for us (see videos below).

By hosting your own Flares For 40 Years event, you’ll be supporting the people of Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti who need hospice care. All proceeds will go directly towards Mary Potter Hospice, allowing us to provide free care for people with life-limiting illnesses and their families or whānau. You can sign up to be a part of Flares for 40 Years using our online form below, or simply email us at events@marypotter.org.nz. Thanks for your support and let’s get groovy!
