Palliative Care ACT’s Annual Fundraising Gala

Palliative Care ACT has been supporting people at end of life and their carers for over 30 years. This support takes the form of volunteers who visit the terminally ill in the hospice, in their home, at a residential aged care facility and even in the Canberra Hospital to assist with a multiplicity of services. It might be to take the patient to a medical appointment, take them on an outing, read to them, make a cuppa, provide a hand or foot massage, write up a life story or give the carer a few hours off.

Palliative Care’s recent fundraising efforts have been directed towards training volunteers to support people in their home. Research shows that over 70 percent of people would like to die at home but only 14 percent do so. It costs around $2000 to train each volunteer.

To help support this amazing work, Palliative Care ACT is holding its annual fundraising dinner at the Canberra Southern Cross Club on Saturday 14 October starting at 6.30pm.

Tickets are $75.00 and are available via Eventbrite.
