What does Donate to Accommodate mean? This year we will provide over 800 patients with 13,000 bed nights in our Daffodil House and Daffodil Lodge facilities, and when those facilities are full we use motels close by. Our accommodation is for those needing cancer treatment or a hospital appointment in Christchurch and we endeavour to find everyone a bed. This hasn't changed during lockdown. We are in full operation and are absolutely committed to providing accommodation, support, transport and a home away from home to those who need it.
In line with the current restrictions we have had to postpone two major fundraisers in Relay ForLife and the Tranz Alpine Scooter Safari and have ceased all fundraising activity throughout our Division. This has had an immediate impact on our income with the losses for March and April already significant.
Because cancer doesn't stop for COVID-19, patients still need treatment and a place to stay. Now we have moved to Level 2 we are seeing an increase in demand for accommodation and we now know our costs will be higher as we keep people safe.
Can you help us by donating $100 for a night's accommodation? This will mean we can continue providing this wonderful service and supporting those with cancer in our community.
1 night = $100
2 nights = $200
3 nights = $300
