Loving Tree 2020

This Christmas, we warmly invite you to remember your loved ones by dedicating a light to them on The Mary Potter Foundation's Loving Tree.

The Loving Tree stands at the entrance to Mary Potter Hospice, and every December we light it up as a symbol of love. A symbol of the love that burns brightly in our hearts for those who are no longer with us. A symbol of your loved one's light that continues to shine in your life.

Over Christmas and the New Year, around 100 families will turn to the Hospice for end-of-life care for someone they love.  Not only will a gift from your heart honour your loved one, it will also bring individual and meaningful care to one of these families this Christmas. 

This will be the most beautiful gift you will give this Christmas.

If you dedicate your gift in memory of someone you love, we will add a heart with their name to our Loving Tree. You will also receive a heart for your own Christmas Tree.

To make a gift from your heart, simply click here or on the image above.

This year we were unable to gather together for our Loving Tree memorial event. However, we filmed a mini-concert and Lighting of the Loving Tree, which you can view by clicking here.

You are welcome to visit the Loving Tree in person to see your loved one’s heart(s) on the tree any evening up to and including 10 January 2021.

If you have any questions at all, please call Morgan on 08 8239 0119, or email morgan.pearse@marypotter.org.au .

Walk for Love 2021

After sadly having to cancel our annual Walk for Love event in 2020, we are very excited that the Walk for Love will be going ahead on Sunday 30th May 2021!

The safety of all participants, sponsors and volunteers is always at the front of our minds. This will be a Covid friendly event with appropriate social distancing in place and every step taken to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved in the day. It will look different to past Walk for Love events, but the feelings of love, togetherness and remembrance will still be there stronger than ever.

The Walk for Love is our major fundraiser each year.  In 2019, we had over 800 people of all age groups come together to remember their loved ones. We know what this day means to everyone who attends.

We only ever ask for a gift from your heart to register for the event.

We rely on the Walk for Love to ensure we can provide Mary Potter Care to patients and families in the Hospice and at Home. Those funds are absolutely vital.

Registrations open on the 1st March.

Or, if you aren't able to attend but would still like to support the Walk for Love you can make a single donation by clicking on the pink heart above: 'Please Donate', you can then select: 'Give Once'. On the donation page you can direct your gift to 'Walk for Love'. There is no set amount, only a gift of your own choosing and we will forward you a receipt.

We are so grateful for the support you give us each year on this special day. We know what it means to so many people and can't wait to see you at our Walk for Love in 2021.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to call Morgan or Lorna at the Foundation office on 08 8239 0119 or email morgan.pearse@marypotter.org.au
