Michael Rudd, owner of Open Space Yoga, and Stephanie Graves, representing Potters for Hospice, visited the Centre for Supportive Care just before Christmas with a wonderful Christmas gift.
With the support from the community, they raised $3,561 from the Shopping Day for Hospice held in November. This gift helps in sustaining the important grief and loss services offered at no cost to families by the Delta Hospice Society.
"Open Space Yoga, Delta Potters and a long list of other vendors have held this special Shopping Day for six years. Their ongoing support is truly appreciated," said Delta Hospice executive director Nancy Macey.
"The society depends on our many community supporters each year. Whether a shopper, vendor or hospice volunteer, everyone involved directly or indirectly makes a difference in the lives of others by giving your time or money to our charity."
Rudd said organizers were pleased with the generosity of participants this year.
"A heartfelt thank you to everyone who made this day possible," he said. "We couldn't do it without you."
The fundraiser took place at Open Space Yoga in Ladner and attracted lots of wonderful vendors, including Sonja Picard, Potters for Hospice, Lara Cuisine, Chair Massage by Sue, The Crows Nest Art Studio, Chocolate Love, Tiger Tea, Gretel Designs, Four Sisters Metis Beadwork, Rose Shortbread, Stephanie Graves, and Donna Hellewell.
Delta Hospice received 20 per cent of all sales and 100 per cent of all sales from Delta Potters.
