The local hospice, which provides FREE quality palliative care for terminally ill patients, is one of our regions most respected not-for-profits.

Katie Rose Cottage Hospice have a dedicated team of medical professionals and volunteers, 24/7 who pride themselves on providing exceptional care all AT NO COST to the client.

Katie Rose Cottage Hospice believe that the end of life should be just as beautiful as the beginning. They provide a safe, welcoming space where guests and loved ones feel welcome and supported.

Hospice care allows carers and family the opportunity to relinquish the carer role, giving families the chance to share special moments together and our guest the opportunity to enjoy the highest quality of life for as long as they have.

All funds raised will to go towards covering the cost of providing compassionate, and high-quality Palliative Care to individuals living with life-limiting illness. The hospice is a patient-centred 24/7 facility that dedicated to providing holistic care in a tranquil home away from home, ensuring comfort and dignity for guests as they approach their end of life.

The hospice relies on fundraising and donations, as Queensland Health only provides around 20% of their annual 1.2 million clinical operational costs, leaving a huge shortfall.

Jean Kittson’s books will be available for purchase on the day, thanks to Annie’s Books of Peregian.
