$200,000 donated for Durham Hospice Clarington

Clarington Council has voted to donate money to help build Durham Hospice Clarington. The move is to help offset rising construction costs.

Clarington Council has approved a $200,000 donation to support Durham Hospice Clarington as it fundraises to build a nine-bed hospice on Cobbledick Road in Newcastle at a two-acre site donated by the municipality.

Council heard from the Chair of Durham Hospice Clarington about the struggle to move forward with the project in a cost-effective way since building costs have increased by 40 per cent. Durham Hospice Clarington has tried to cut construction costs by changing the architectural design for the space as it continues to fundraise for the project, said a municipal statement.

The municipality has already agreed to offset the development charges for the project, estimated at $165,000 based on the current design. The community can donate to help support the Durham Region Hospice Clarington online.
