The Lions pitch in for Mary Potter Community Hospice Kapiti

January 31st, 2017

The Mary Potter Community Hospice at Kapiti is looking shiny and new after Lions gave the building a fresh coat of paint donated by Resene on Saturday 14 Jan.

It began with a major area clean-up a week prior and the Lions armed with loppers, clippers, spades, rakes and brooms filled three big trailers with green waste and took it away for recycling.

A day of work and it was done. Gary Bly said he and fellow Lions were really pleased with the result. ‘It’s amazing what 14 useful workers can achieve in a relatively short time,” he said.

Diana Pryde, Mary Potter’s acting CEO said they were delighted with the facilities’ fresh new look and were very grateful for the support from the Lions Club of Kapiti.

We could not continue to provide the services we do without such support from the community, she said.

The Lions Club of Kapiti are long-time supporters of Mary Potter Hospice at Kapiti, its members also operate a fortnightly roster keeping the hospice grounds tidy.
