Join One of Our Events
If you would like to support us but you're not sure where to start, we would love you to join one of our events.
Each 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 turn to the Hospice for end-of-life care for someone they love. When you dedicate a gift from your heart honouring your loved one, you are also bringing individual and meaningful care to a Hospice patient and their family.
It's the most beautiful gift you can give at Christmas.
We add a special gold or silver heart with your loved one's name to our Loving Tree, and send you another heart for your own Christmas Tree.
We look forward to our Loving Tree ceremony in December 2021, where we will once again gather together to honour and remember the loved ones we miss every day.
Walk for Love - May 2021
The Walk for Love 2021 was held on Sunday 23 May in Elizabeth Vale and on Sunday 30 May in North Adelaide. In this crazy COVID-19 world, we felt truly blessed being able to host an intimate version of the event with 100 participants at Elizabeth Vale and 700 participants walking in North Adelaide at their chosen start times. The autumn sun shone down on us at both events as we walked in memory of our loved ones.
Thank you to everyone who came along to support the 2021 Walk for Love, our heart goes out to everyone who is grieving. Our thanks to the wonderful team of volunteers, Dr Dan and his team of bakers at Cang's Cake Stall and our supporters who made the event extra special this year. Photos from the day will be shared soon on our Facebook page.
In the coming weeks we look forward sharing the impact of Walk for Love and how much was raised to support the patients and families preparing to say goodbye to their loved ones at Mary Potter.
There is still time if you would like to make a donation to someone who walked or a general donation towards Walk for Love. Please visit www.walkforlove.org.au.
