The Helderberg Hospice has been providing services to the local community since 1986 and is in need of Cape Town's help.
The hospice provides care for any persons diagnosed with life-threatening illness but says that funding remains a major challenge.
Hospice CEO Gail Sykes has appealed to Cape Town residents to assist by either attending their annual fundraising events or by pledging to be a part of their donor club.
The Club 1000 allows individuals to support Helderberg Hospice by committing to a monthly donation of R50 for a minimum of 12 months.
All profits raised by Club 1000 go directly to funding their Home Care service
She debunks the misconception that the hospice centres are only there for patients who have reached a terminal point in their illness.
We are using the slogan this year, know us before you need us.— Gail Sykes, Helderberg Hospice CEO
Needy members of the 240 000 strong community can receive in-patient care, home-based care and other beneficial medical resources.
