Sooke Hospice get generous donation

Sooke Lion’s Club as their latest large donation to Sooke Hospice Society.

Sooke Hospice volunteers and the medical care team have been providing end of life care over the last 25 years in the Sooke area.

Generous donations of money and services from the community, from service clubs, the Sooke River hotel and Buffy’s Pub have made this possible. This past year saw the purchase of a permanent location due to the generous donation from the estate of John Oliver of Metchosin.

An open house will be held on Sept. 24 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. to celebrate the 25th anniversary and to show appreciation to all who have volunteered in the past and present. All are welcome to attend to celebrate with us.

Sooke Hospice is located at 6669 Goodmere Road.
