Volunteers Mystery Bus Tour

December 2018 Volunteers Christmas Party

December 16, 2018

A bus load of volunteers celebrated the festival season by joining the Hospice Mystery Tour and Christmas Party which travelled to Matamata and back.

Volunteer, Barry Phillips arrived on board with his guitar and provided the “must do” sing-along of Christmas carols and popular songs of the 70s and 80s. The Christmas Lunch was held at the Horse & Jockey Inn and after a delicious traditional Christmas meal the Quality Care Certificates and Kowhai Spirit of Rotorua Awards were given out.

Along the way there was much speculation on our destination with many volunteers Googling locations along the route, trying to guess where we were headed for lunch.

It was a very enjoyable day out and a wonderful opportunity for our CEO, Jonathon Hagger to thank volunteers for the valuable contribution they make to Hospice.
