Margaret Stewart House Wellington now has fantastic new bedding, lounge furniture and laundry appliances thanks to a grant from the Dry July Foundation. It’s wonderful to finally replace items that have given us 20 years’ faithful service. We’ll be able to get through lots of laundry, especially in winter, with the brilliant commercial-grade laundry appliances we now have! The very generous grant means we can keep providing a very comfortable home away from home for people needing a place to stay while receiving outpatient cancer treatment at Wellington Hospital.

Much needed refurbishment at Shirley Crawford Haven
The Far North Community Hospice Shirley Crawford Haven provides a home away from home for the patient and their family / whanau. It is a self contained unit with bathroom, lounge/dining area, bedroom and kitchenette. Funds raised from the 2017 Dry July Campaign have helped to update the space at the Shirley Crawford Haven with comfy lounges, new carpet and blinds.

Treatment chairs at Wairau Hospital funded by Dry July
Modelled by our nursing staff, these chairs provide patients with a better and more comfortable treatment experience, and also help the nursing staff provide improved care. The new chairs are height-variable to make it much easier for patients to access them and have a range of other features to make their treatment as comfortable as possible.

Below is a photo of the first few magazines that have arrived (there will be more!). I have just taken them down to chemo and they were very well received. I also had some more very positive feedback about the flowers so that's great!
