2020 Limited Edition Christmas Bauble
This year's bauble is Comfort by Hospice
"Providing wrap around services, compassion and comfort, hospice supports people to live every moment - to spend time with those they care about, in the places they love, bringing joy and creating memories that last forever."
Once again, Farmers stores across New Zealand will be raising funds for their local Hospice service in the lead up to Christmas. 2020 is the seventh year that Farmers staff and customers will join together to raise funds, to keep hospice care free of charge in every community across Aotearoa.
Farmers customers can support their local hospice from 19 November until Christmas Eve by purchasing a limited edition hand-painted hospice bauble, available instore or on-line. Each bauble is $10 and thanks to the generous support of Farmers, the full $10 from every purchase will be donated to the local hospice service.
2020 has been a challenging year for many with the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic affecting us all. Many people have reflected on what is important, who matters most to them and how they want to live their lives going forward - something that people using hospice services and their families are encouraged to do - to seek comfort in one another as the end of life approaches.
Comfort by Hospice was inspired by a group of people in Christchurch who generously shared their experience of their loved one's death, supported by hospice. Whilst each person's situation was unique to them and their family and whanau, they were united by the guidance hospice provided - the empathy, understanding and clinical expertise of the hospice team that allowed good memories to be possible.
"Hospice surrounded us with love, we felt wrapped in compassion and comfort. What a gift", a participant reflected.
There are limited numbers of the baubles available, they will sell out as in previous years so please visit your Farmers store or buy online today.
