Thank you ‘berry’ much for your support!

November 22nd, 2019

We’re pleased to announce that thanks to your support of the Mary Potter Hospice Strawberry Festival in Midland Park last week, we were able to raise over $52,000. This money will help keep Hospice services free for the people of Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti.


At Midland Park we went through 3,500 punnets of strawberries, 390 two-litre tubs of ice cream, we had amazing entertainment all day long, and over 150 amazing volunteers helping us on the day.

Mary Potter Hospice wants to thank its brilliant sponsors of the Hospice Strawberry Festival: The annual Midland Park Mary Potter Hospice Strawberry Festival could not take place or be the success it needs to be with every one of you supporting .

Firstly, a huge thank you to Dean Galt and his team at Pak’n Save Kilbirnie for donating all the ice cream and strawberries – without these we would not have an event!

Thank you to Julie, Nick and the team at Moore Wilson’s for donating all the thousands of bowls, spoons, napkins and take away containers – and the chocolate.

The entertainment sourced by Barrie Hutton from Accent Audio and the performers all do this for a koha.
