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.
Walk for Love
We were blessed with two sunshine filled autumn days for Walk for Love Elizabeth Vale and Walk for Love North Adelaide in May 2022.
Both were beautiful days as more than 800 participants came to together to remember those we love and miss everyday. Everyone involved helped to bring compassionate care and loving support to patients and families who will turn to Mary Potter in the weeks and months ahead.
Highlights included Dr Dan's bake stall with delicious homemade treats and RAA's vintage roadside assist vehicles. There were lots of little touches including the gratitude tent and the nature wand children's activities along the route.
The event was made possible with support from our dedicated volunteers, students from St Peter's Boarding and our event sponsors RAA, The Banner Crew, DBH Lawyers and Oakford Homes.
Our thanks extends to our event suppliers Australian Lutheran College, Blackfriars Old Scholars FC, Cirelli Coffee, Foodland North Adelaide, Ceravolo's and The Rotary Club of West Torrens for cooking the sausage sizzle.
Photos from the 2022 Walk for Love will be shared on our Facebook page soon.
We hope to see you at Walk for Love in 2023!
