At the Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards on October 17th, 2018, the Hospice Peterborough team heard our name called as the winner for the Not-for-Profit category. We were honoured to have been nominated alongside the Canadian Canoe Museum and the YWCA Peterborough-Haliburton, and to win takes our breath away.
Shelley Barrie, President of the Hospice Peterborough Board of Directors, accepted the award for Not-for-Profit Excellence on behalf of Executive Director, Linda Sunderland, saying,
“We are in the middle of a transformation at Hospice Peterborough which will see us expand our services to include 24/7 end-of-life care in our stunning new Care Centre, at the corner of London and Reid streets. I look out in the room tonight and see so many who have invested their time, advice, support expertise, and made significant donations to bring this project to life.”
Thank you to the Chamber of Commerce and our category sponsor, Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough for this privilege. And thank you to our community. Without the support of our donors, sponsors and volunteers, our mission to provide care for those facing life-threatening illness and grief would not be possible.
“Together we are building our community’s hospice – this award is for you!”- Shelley Barrie, President, Board of Directors, Hospice Peterborough
