Hospice Strawberry Festival 2022

Our Hospice Strawberry Festival events are back and sweeter than ever!  

Why strawberries and ice cream? Strawberries celebrate life – they’re a super food, symbol of summer and simply delicious! The Mary Potter Hospice Strawberry Festival raises around $100,000 across our berrylicious events in Wellington, Porirua and Kāpiti, and helps to raise awareness of Mary Potter Hospice.
