We would like to invite you to have afternoon tea with us!

Here at Waipuna Hospice we believe that life is special. We like to encourage everyone to celebrate the friendships in their lives. We are hosting Waipuna Hospice Cuppa to celebrate your relationship with your friends, family and the community you live in.

This Valentine’s Day put on your best frock and pearls or your waistcoat and hat, and join us for afternoon tea with light refreshment, snacks and acoustic entertainment.

It would be wonderful to have an opportunity to catch up with you, it’s amazing what can happen when a group of people with a common mission come together over a cup of tea.



We would love to see you there!

Waipuna Hospice has been providing a range of specialist community palliative care and hospice services for people facing life limiting illnesses. We care for over 1000 patients per annum, a figure only set to increase in the coming years. Hospices are independent charitable organisations providing care and support at no cost to the people using our services. Whilst there is no cost to the people using hospice services it costs a lot to provide. We need to raise $3.7 million in the coming financial year to meet the shortfall in our operating costs. That’s a little over $71,000 per week!

By supporting Waipuna Hospice by hosting a Waipuna Hospice Cuppa you’re raising awareness as well as crucial funds for such a special charity.

“Teaism is a cult founded on the adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence. It inculcates purity and harmony, the mystery of mutual charity, the romanticism of the social order. It is essentially a worship of the Imperfect, as it is a tender attempt to accomplish something possible in this impossible thing we know as life.” – Kakuzō Okakura
