Another fun way to support Mercy Hospice is by running your own fundraiser. Here’s a selection of creative ways our amazing supporters have been raising money recently. 

Switch & Ditch

Organised by hospice volunteer, Meryle Kenny at her retirement village, residents made donations to switch their pre-loved clothes for others. More than $200 was raised for Mercy Hospice. Fabulous result Meryle, thank you so much.

Powerlifting for Mercy  

Amanda Parish was so grateful for the care provided for her mum and whānau that she wanted to give back. Amanda is a POWERLIFTER so on Dec 11 last year she attempted to beat her maximum squat, bench press and deadlift, and raised an incredible $2,640. Superb!

Richmond Road School

The student council at Richmond Road School in Ponsonby raised $509 for Mercy Hospice after running a series of Sausage Sizzles at their school. Great job guys!

Auckland Marathon

Justine Verrall, one of Mercy’s amazing Health Care Assistants ran 12km in January and raised over $1,105 for Mercy Hospice. What a legend!

And still in the fundraising pipeline:

Mufti for Mercy 

Perhaps you’re on the PTA, a teacher, student or parent. Why not organise a Mufti Day for Mercy Hospice? Students can wear their own clothes to school for a day in exchange for a gold-coin donation to Mercy Hospice.
