Editorial: Keep NOTL Palliative Care in mind

It’s sometimes a tough decision when you’re putting on a fundraiser. Selecting which charity to donate to can be overwhelming, especially when there are so many fantastic initiatives out there to support.

There’s Wells of Hope, which held its annual Passion fundraiser last week at Chateau des Charmes. There’s, of course, Red Roof Retreat, which is an extremely popular choice. There’s Newark Neighbours, TD Jazz’s Big Band Fundraiser, the Terry Fox Run, and the list goes on.

But one thing I’ve noticed, and perhaps it’s ironic in a town that has an older demographic, is that Niagara-on-the-Lake Palliative Care is often forgotten.

It’s arguable, especially in this town, that NOTL PC is one of the most important charities we have.

For those who aren’t familiar with it, they provide absolutely free services for people in the ends of their lives, and who are suffering from terminal illness.

We would like to remind anyone putting on a charitable event that there are plenty of diverse options to support within the community, and to keep NOTL Palliative Care in mind as the next organization to receive your support.
