Now that we are coming out of lockdown restrictions – let’s join together to regain our community spirit and support a great cause like our local Hospice. The days are getting colder, which means it’s nearly time to bare the legs in support of Waipuna Hospice.


Why should you wear shorts for Hospice?

As a charity, all of our services are provided at no cost to patients and their families, but to be able to do this and support our local community we need to raise over $4.75 million this year.

Shorts4Hospice is one way we can raise funds and ask for donations in a fun and inclusive way. Every dollar raised from Shorts4Hospice goes towards enabling our team of nurses, doctors, social workers, counsellors and volunteers to ensure we provide the highest standard of palliative care services to people our community.

How it works

Friday 19 June is the day when we ask you, your friends and colleagues to wear shorts in support of Waipuna Hospice.

Get out your brightest, boldest, biggest, craziest, most trendy shorts and have some fun while raising money for Waipuna Hospice. Register, donate or challenge others to get on board, share your photos on Facebook, decorate the office or create an event or set up Givealittle page to help fundraise! Life is short – make it count!
