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.
Brian McAvoy shares his joy at reconnecting with patients and families.
“My wife, Julie, and I have been volunteers at Mercy since May 2022. My initial involvement on the Drinks Trolley and now
as a Compassionate Companion has reconnected me with patients and their families since I retired from clinical practice three years ago. This has been challenging, stimulating, and rewarding, providing a transition from a clinical to a pastoral role, both of which are core features of general practice.
I am reminded of Maya Angelou’s words: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
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!“
