Cranford Hospice Charity Golf Tournament

Since 2004, Hastings Karamu Rotary Club has been proud to support the Cranford Charity Golf Tournament.


We are looking for businesses to sponsor holes on course for $100 each. If you would like to contribute, please get in touch.


Hastings Karamu Rotary Club is pleased to have raised $11,000 for Cranford Hospice during our 2017 tournament. Thank you to all of our participants and supporters for contributing to such a fantastic result. 


Cranford Hospice started in Hawke's Bay in 1982 with a handful of volunteers. Today we have around 60 paid staff, 400 volunteers and every year we care for 600 patients and their families.

Our goal is to help people make the most of their time left on their final journey, to help them live every moment whether they are at home, in a rest home or come for a short stay with us in our eight-bed inpatient facility.

Cranford's care covers practical help, as well as emotional and spiritual support, and symptom control.

Our highly-skilled and dedicated team includes doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and family support staff and we are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to talk through any concerns, offer advice or help manage symptoms.

Our services are free regardless of age, ethnicity, means or religion.

As well as providing palliative care, Cranford Hospice has a strong educational and learning service, offering several programmes and opportunities for those working in primary and secondary care settings in the wider community.

We are a registered charity and operate as part of Presbyterian Support East Coast. While the Hawke's Bay District Health Board funds part of our running costs, we require over $2 million annually in donations to maintain services. This shortfall comes mainly from generous donations from our community.
