Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


57 year old Anne Vaughan has always been a star gazer and approached the Race4Life Trust with a special wish, upon finding out about her terminal diagnosis.

Anne and her son Elliot will head to Lake Tekapo on Sunday 23rd July in the hope that they, like the Jameson family before them, will witness the Southern Lights.

In late May, Natalie Jameson and her family were guests to the community in Tekapo and were spoilt with kindness and compassion. This particular weekend was arranged by our Trust, so it was with some trepidation that we approached the community again. Needless to say, every one of the service providers spontaneously agreed to help Anne and her son Elliot in exactly the same way as they supported the Jameson family .

The Lake Tekapo community completely rocks.
