Our meeting on Friday 26th June was followed by the presentation of glass plaques to the platinum sponsors: Maria and Grant Ryder from Mondiale, Greg and Rebecca Wilkinson from Guardian Group and our hosts of the night, founding donors Jeff and Chrissy from Douglas Pharmaceuticals. Also present was Kay Davies a Silver sponsor from Giving time.
As you know Friends of Mercy, like many other charities, cancelled functions as we cancelled our Alfresco Party in the Garden in March.
On Friday 3rd April, Friends of Mercy were delighted to donate $25,000 raised from some of our generous sponsors of our Garden Party to our chosen charity Mercy Hospice.
We know how hard it is for any charity at the moment, with no means of raising funds during the Covid-19 lockdown. So the team decided that now was the perfect time for Friends of Mercy to make our first donation to Mercy Hospice.
We were most grateful for the kind acknowledgement and thanks for this donation by Board Chairman Arthur Morris. Thank you to all of you who have enabled us to make this donation. We will keep you posted about the new date for Alfresco Party in the Garden and other planned events.
Stay safe and Kai kaha.
Chrissy Douglas, Cheryl Whiting, Margo Stewart
and the Friends of Mercy team.
