abbotsford-hospice-societyThe Abbotsford Hospice Society will be getting two and a half million dollars from the province to help complete the adult hospice facility.

Society board chair David Turchen says this funding will have a huge impact on being able to finish the project.

“We have almost in place now financing, it’s almost wrapped up here, to finish the project at a very good attractive rate that could allow us to complete. And our intention here is to look very closely at that and continue this building until it’s completely done.”

Turchen says they still have another two million dollars to raise, although he says they made get some in kind donations from local businesses to help out.

He says once the exterior is done, the plan is to go with local businesses to outfit and furnish the interior.
