Fulfilling the wishes of Palliative Care Patients


The community of Hamilton totally rock. Our beautiful patient Aroha Andrews is a mother of 4 gorgeous boys. Aroha, who is only 36 has a special wish to marry her sweetheart Sam, father of the boys. In coordinating this event, we have been exposed to the most amazing generosity. On Saturday the 11th August, Aroha will have her every need attended to personally including makeup, dress, hairdressing, flax bouquet and nails, as will her bridesmaid and her Mum.
Wintec have gifted their state of the art facility free of charge. Crockery, cutlery, glasses and tableware have all been donated, flowers for the venue and decorations for the 12 tables of 10 are all free of charge. Family members along with the Race4Life team will be decorating the surrounds and giving the venue a personal touch. The meal for 120 has been catered free of charge as has the time and skill of a professional photographer. Food has been donated by a local supermarket and hams donated by a stalwart who never fails to help us with any catering event. A beautiful wedding cake has been personally designed and donated. Sam and his boys have been decked out in wedding attire as of course has our beautiful bride Aroha. Accommodation has been gifted to the married couple on the evening of their special day. Luxury and classic cars will transport the couple to and from the venue. The celebrant will travel from Auckland, to have the privilege (her own words) of marrying this special couple. We will keep you posted with wedding photos.

A huge thank you to an absolutely enormous list of wonderful people:
