CHARITY CURRY NIGHT & AUCTION!

PROJECT HOSPICE NEPAL
Twenty-two years ago in Kathmandu Nepal, four doctors who were school friends got together and started the very first Hospice for terminally ill patients in Nepal. Today, Hospice Nepal is a centre of excellence for palliative care.
‘Project Hospice Nepal’, is an International Rotary Project, driven here in New Zealand by the Fairfield Rotary Club of Hamilton. The current Hospice is now too small. It has no facilities for terminal ill children, and needs space for training the next generation of medical and nursing staff in end-of-life and palliative care. With our partners in Nepal and the UK we are seeking to build a much larger 24-bed hospice, with facilities to assist children.
Our project teams have already raised $750,000 USD, which we have used to purchase the land for the new Hospice. British actress Dame Joanna Lumley, has recently become our Ambassador and Rotary clubs in New Zealand the UK and Canada are showing strong support for the project.
Fundraising is well underway and we are holding a ‘ Curry Night and Auction’, on Thursday, 21st September 2023.
During the evening, Cricketing Legend Ross Taylor will host a 20 Minute Q&A session about his cricketing life and career. A number of outstanding items of memorabilia have been donated by various organisations and individuals including the former Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the NZ Olympic Rowing teams, Cricketing legends Ross Taylor and Sir Richard Hadlee, Willie Apiata VC, Sir David Attenborough, the Chiefs Rugby Team, the Prime Minister of Nepal and many, many others.
Tickets for the event are available online at a cost of $75.00pp.
Corporate tables of 8 are also available and these can be purchased via the website
