Like being in heaven

Bonnie Yearsley passed in April 2001 after a 7-month battle with Oesophageal Cancer. It never occurred to me that my Mum might die at just 53 and I was only 24. It was a complete shock.

10 - A Celebration of Tastes


An Outstanding Celebration of Tastes!
Earlier this year, supporters came together for Mercy Hospice at 10 – A Celebration of Tastes. The magnitude of kindness and generosity on display was truly inspirational.

Continuing the Bond

Grief is highly individual and there’s no one-size-fits-all model. While it used to be thought that grief was a linear process, it’s now accepted that it’s not that simple.

A passion for palliative care

Brian McAvoy shares his joy at reconnecting with patients and families.

This fabulous 5-course fundraiser for Mercy Hospice is brought to you by Five Knots at the spectacular Tamaki Yacht Club In August this year, Will Keely, chef at the beautiful Five Knots at Tamaki Yacht Club, was cared for at Mercy Hospice.

Cheers Mum!

Steven Taramoeroa has generously donated non-alcoholic beverages to the drinks trolley in memory of his mother, Linda Harris. Cheers Steven!!!

“The Mercy drinks trolley is something I’m very fond of. I will always remember being able to “Cheers” with my mum for the last time. A memory that I wouldn’t have if it wasn’t for the drinks trolley!”
