Hospice Wellington is a gift to the community from the community. About 40 years ago, a group of concerned residents came forward because they believed there was a gap in care for people living in this community facing the final stages of life. They wanted to do something about it.
In 1980, Hospice Wellington was established to provide our community with the compassionate care, emotional support and practical assistance to our neighbours with a life-threatening illness.
Hospice Wellington does more than care for those in the final stages of their lives. We are also here for grieving families and caregivers who are facing the loss of a loved one. Our programs and services extend to the entire community of Wellington County.
This is only possible thanks to private donations and funding from our many partners over the years who have been instrumental in supporting Hospice Wellington's establishment and growth.
Handbags for Hospice
Handbags for Hospice is our premier fundraising event at Hospice Wellington. Over 100 top designer handbags auctioned off in live and silent formats. With this year being virtual, we are unable to have our Golden Ticket, Paper Purses, Wine Wall and Candy Buffet activations. In lieu of these, we are launching the Golden 50/50 to help offset the funds that will not be made by the previously mentioned activations this year. You can directly support our programs and services at Hospice Wellington by purchasing tickets to the Golden 50/50.
