Dunedin Derby Upcoming Bout

Press Release – Living Every Moment

Press Release – Dunedin Derby presents ‘Living Every Moment’.

5th March 2013.

Dunedin Derby and an all-star guest list of skaters from across the South Island will be battling it out not only for supremacy, but also for charity in their first bout of the 2013 season. The players hope to raise awareness and support for the worthy local charity, Otago Community Hospice on Saturday 30 March.

Otago Community Hospice provides much needed specialist palliative care service in the Otago region. Their multi-disciplinary team of nurses, doctors, counselors, social workers and support staff are based in Dunedin, Oamaru, Balclutha and Alexandra and provide care for not only the patients, but also their family/whanau.

There will be two teams on the night, the Kowhai Karnage and the Pohutakaos, who will entertain and thrill the crowds. Along with a raffle and a ‘Shave for Hospice’ fundraiser, which will involve local volunteers and one brave Derby skater donating their locks for the cause.

50% of the event profits will go directly to the Otago Community Hospice, as well as items gifted by the public to the Hospice Shop.

The Otago Dancers will also be performing some of their best moves pre-game and at half time to rouse the crowds and get the fundraising started. And the voice of the evening and great local supporter will be the wonderful P from Classic Hits radio.

Lyn Chapman, Funding and Marketing Coordinator of the Otago Community Hospice says, “We’re excited to be part of Dunedin’s Derby’s first 2013 bout and we’re grateful to the team for seeing this event as an opportunity to raise awareness of the Otago Community Hospice. All of our services are provided free of charge so the money raised by this event will help us continue to provide specialist palliative care to those in our community with life-limiting
illnesses”.

Dunedin Derby and its partners hope you can join them for their first bout and support this amazing local charity.
