Beth Donovan Hospice is happy to announce that they have raised $30,000 through their 30 for 30 campaign. In honour of the hospice’s 30th Anniversary, donations were collected through the sale of paper butterflies, craft and bake sales, third-party fundraising events, as well as through private donations. We must thank the many businesses, community partners, and private donors who helped us reached our goal. Many thanks to B&H Grocer who was our top retail fundraiser.

All funds raised will go directly to the continued operation of our many services including In-Home visiting, Equipment Lending, Day Hospice, and the Grief and Bereavement programs.

Beth Donovan Hospice serves individuals and their families as they navigate the challenges of life-limiting illnesses and end-of-life transitions. Founded through the compassion and vision of generous volunteers, Beth Donovan Hospice has been providing services for over 30 years. We serve the communities of North Grenville, Merrickville-Wolford, Spencerville, North Gower and beyond. All members of the community who have any life-limiting illness or are recently bereaved can access our services free of charge.

Ongoing fundraising is necessary for Beth Donovan Hospice to continue providing compassionate support and professional care to those in our community at end-of-life, their caregivers and the bereaved.

A picture is worth a thousand words. It is amazing how easily a meaningful moment, memory, or feeling can be captured by one great photograph. Often the essence of that moment is conveyed more deeply by a single image than through the written word. 

At BDH we have many activities and events where we would like to capture the essence of a moment and share it with the community. Whether it be a quiet moment between a client and volunteer, an enjoyable time at a fundraising event, or the peace and tranquility of our labyrinth and Healing Garden, we are always looking for that perfect photograph to tell the story and capture the spirit of the care we provide. 

So, when we contacted the North Grenville Photography Club to see if they could help us, we were delighted when they agreed. In fact, they were excited to get involved and help another local organization. 

Although they are perhaps better known for their photographs of nature, they agreed to include people and activity shots too.  We very much appreciate all the photographs they have taken for us this fall including wonderful shots of the hospice property, the labyrinth and healing garden as well as individual pictures of our volunteers at the Volunteer Appreciation Gathering, Santa Claus parade float and other hospice activities.  The photographers have done a marvellous job.  

We want to give a big “shout out” and heartfelt thank you to the North Grenville Photography club for their contribution. We look forward to continuing this wonderful relationship.
