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.

Loving Tree

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.

From October 2023 you will be able to dedicate a light on the 2023 Loving Tree.  

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.


2023 Walk for Love

The 2023 Walk for Love was a truly special event. More than 1,000 joined us to Walk in honour of our loved ones. Many chose to take one step further to help raise vital funds; to bring compassionate care and loving support to palliative patients and their families who will need care in the weeks and months ahead.

Many chose to do their own Walk this year including several country towns across SA and two people who met up in Hyde Park, London!

However, the majority of participants chose to come together at the Walk in North Adelaide.

Our surprise and delight this year included a heart bearing their loved one's name hung carefully in the trees in Wellington Square. Participants had the chance to find their loved one's heart and take it home with them.

At the end of the Walk for Love, our younger walkers enjoyed having their faces painted and many families stocked up with delicious home-baked treats for sale at Barbara's Bakehouse (hosted by Air Barb's Crew). There were so many yummy cakes and slices to take home and enjoy with a warm cuppa!

Thank you to all involved in this year's Walk for Love. Especially our major event sponsors DBH Lawyers, RAA, and Oakford Homes, as well as our event suppliers Ceravolo Orchards and Cirelli Coffee and our dedicated volunteer team!

We're looking forward to next year's Walk for Love already! To register your interest please email or return to this website in January 2024.
