Wine auc­tion gives to Cran­ford Hop­sice

Hastings Leader - - News -

More than 50 guests from the Hawke’s Bay Wine Auc­tion Spon­sor Part­ner­ship Pro­gramme gath­ered at Church Road Win­ery last week for the pre­sen­ta­tion of a $265,500 cheque to Cran­ford Hospice.

The money was raised from the 27th an­nual Hawke’s Bay Wine Auc­tion event.

“We are thrilled with this year’s record-break­ing re­sult and we recog­nise the vast con­tri­bu­tions that mem­bers of the HBWA Spon­sor Part­ner­ship Pro­gramme give each year to as­sist with run­ning of the event. Through their gen­eros­ity and sup­port, all funds raised go to Cran­ford Hospice,” says event man­ager Elisha Milmine. “It is such a plea­sure to work with and be sur­rounded by such a gen­er­ous and driven group of peo­ple.”

Cran­ford Hospice Trust chair Hay­ley An­der­son says Cran­ford Hospice Trust is grate­ful to the Hawke’s Bay Wine Auc­tion Com­mit­tee for their on­go­ing con­tri­bu­tion.

“Ev­ery day our team sup­ports over 200 peo­ple liv­ing with a life-lim­it­ing ill­ness and their fam­i­lies. This con­tri­bu­tion en­ables us to de­liver high-qual­ity pal­lia­tive care ser­vices.

“The auc­tion is the big­gest pri­vate an­nual con­trib­u­tor. We are ex­tremely grate­ful for the hard work of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee.”
