The Cavalry Mater Newcastle’s Mercy Hospice will celebrate years of memories and heritage with thier 20th Anniversary today.

Built by monies rasied from an NBN Telethon, the service has a strong community reputation as a leader in providing specialist palliative care services to the people of the Hunter region and beyond.

Professor Katherine Clar, Area Director of Palliative Care said the hospice owes a lot to the selfless work of the community. “We recognise that the hospice is very much in the hearts and minds of the people of the Hunter region and it is important we celebrate the contribution of many in establishing and being part of an important community service,”.

There will be an afternoon celebration filled with music, photos and storytelling.
