Official Video launch
“25 Years of Caring Service”
Bruce Peninsula Hospice is pleased to invite you to view our newly developed video highlighting the caring service and deep history of volunteerism on the peninsula.
Filmed entirely through the Covid pandemic and with the grateful support of funding from the Community Foundation Grey Bruce, the video strives to capture the significance and impact of our visiting local hospice for families and individuals in our community.
The video features over 20 volunteers and clients who share their personal stories of commitment, hard work and gratitude. We include the vision of early founders, Pat Horner and Bill Welch, who in the early 90’s, were part of the Lion’s Head Anglican Church Outreach Committee. They, along with local Lion’s Head resident Lynda Hoita, who was facing a serious illness, were the early pioneers of the hospice movement in our community.
Our hospice visiting and bereavement services have since been offered to over 1,000 individuals. We invite you to hear past and current volunteers reflect on what it means to be a volunteer for Bruce Peninsula Hospice and to be inspired by the story of clients and how the service made a difference.
