Mowsworth Rampage for a good cause

Dress up, decorate your ride-on lawnmower, and join us at the starting line! It's going to be a great day out for a good cause.

Where does my money go?

All of the funds you raise as part of  Mowsworth Rampage  go directly to the Cancer Society Nelson Tasman and Nelson Tasman Hospice to support those affected by cancer in our community.

The Cancer Society Nelson Tasman stands by you and your whānau every step of the way – from cancer diagnosis through treatment to recovery. Their commitment is to ensure that no one faces cancer alone. ALL their cancer support services are provided free of charge to individuals and families in the local community who are navigating the challenges of cancer.

Dealing with a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, affecting various aspects of life. With their Supportive Care services, you are not alone in this journey. They extend their assistance and care to you and your whānau, ensuring you receive support not only during diagnosis and treatment but also in rehabilitation and post-treatment.

The Cancer Society services cover a broad spectrum, including the wider Nelson and Tasman regions, Golden Bay, Nelson Lakes, Murchison, and Rai Valley. From a Volunteer Driving Service, Counselling, Support Groups, Yoga Classes, and Gym Programs to Hardship Support Grants, Volunteer Visitor Program, Cancer Information & Resources – They are here for you.

Their advocacy and support extend beyond the individual, encompassing whānau with tamariki. Their library, featuring a children’s section, links you with other cancer communities, iwi services, and provides an exclusive Kia ora - E te Iwi - Kaupapa Māori Cancer Education resource.

Your support matters:

When you contribute to Cancer Society Nelson Tasman, your generous donation directly funds these FREE cancer support services. Whether it's at the time of diagnosis, during treatment, or when individuals are transitioning back to their normal lives post-treatment, The Cancer Society is here to make a positive impact. Your generosity at this event directly contributes to sustaining and expanding these vital services.

Your participation in this fundraising event ensures that the Cancer Society can continue offering both 1:1 and group peer support, creating a network of care that extends beyond medical treatment. If you have any questions or wish to learn more about their organisation, feel free to contact:

Together, let's make a meaningful impact in the lives of those affected by cancer.

“You matter because you are you. You matter to the lastmoment of your life, and we will do all we can, not only tohelp you die peacefully, but also to live until you die.”
Dame Cicely Saunders 1918 - 2005
(founder of the modern Hospice movement)

Nelson Tasman Hospice provides free specialist palliative care services for people of all ages with all life-limiting illnesses, supporting them, their whānau, through illness, death, and bereavement. Our careis available throughout the Nelson Tasman region and is provided in the home, in aged-care facilities, inhospitals, and in our purpose-built Specialist Palliative Care in-patient unit (SPCU).

Employing a team of around 60 clinical colleagues, Nelson Tasman Hospice provides care for around 240 people each month. This interdisciplinary team includes Doctors, Registered Nurses and Allied Health professionals including Clinical Psychology, Psychotherapy, Social Work, Physiotherapy,Pastoral Care and Bereavement support and business support colleagues. We know that people with life-limiting illnesses need a holistic approach to their care, not only focusing on physical symptoms but also supporting patients and their whānau with the social, emotional, and spiritual impact of their illness.

As part of the service, Nelson Tasman Hospice provides free specialist equipment into the homes of hospice patients, when needed, to support them and their carer/s.

In a rural setting this care is provided in collaboration with District Nurses & community teams. The Nelson Tasman Hospice team works collaboratively with these teams and their patients providing clinical oversight, direct specialist care, specialist equipment in homes and professional development.

Nelson Tasman Hospice’s services are free to patients and are funded to approximately 45% of their operational costs, by Te Whatu Ora Nelson Marlborough leaving around $3.5M a year (or around $9,600 a day) to be raised from our community. We could not continue providing these services without thegenerosity of our
corporate sponsors and community, or our 5 Hospice Shops.

Each dollar raised in our community stays in our community and supports our community when theyare at their most vulnerable. We could not continue to provide free hospice services throughout ourregion without the generosity and support of the community that we care for.
