Troy and Liddy, owners of Wooling Hill Memorial Estate, are passionate about supporting their
local community and rural healthcare. They are hosting the Wooling Hill Run 2021 to raise
funds to support palliative care at Central Highlands Rural Health’s campus in Kyneton (Kyneton
Health). Between the 12th of November and 12th December, locals and tourists are invited to
run 7.2kms (6 laps) or walk 3.6km (3 laps) on the course located in the beautiful grounds of the
Wooling Hill Memorial Estate, New Gisborne.
The first goal for the Wooling Hill Run 2021 is to fund a cuddle bed that allows family and
friends to provide physical comfort to a loved one during end-of-life care. Physical closeness
can have the effect of deepening connections and improving quality of life. The cuddle bed
offers an opportunity for loved ones to lay together and provide compassionate care as people
near the end of their life. Troy and Liddy would like to raise enough funds to not only purchase a
cuddle bed, but also update the palliative care suite with new furnishings, artwork, paint, carpet
and fold-out sofa bed for loved ones so that it is a comfortable and relaxing space for patients
and their visitors. Creating a peaceful space will contribute to the patient’s wellbeing and help
to support their end-of-life needs.
Palliative care helps end-of-life patients manage symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Our nurses focus on the needs of the individual and their family and through a combination of
medical, emotional, psychological and spiritual support, we enable a person to live with dignity,
peace and comfort for the duration of their illness.
Funds will be raised via corporate sponsorship, participant fees and general donations. All
contributions are greatly appreciated and will directly support palliative care patients and their
families at Central Highlands Rural Health’s campus in Kyneton (Kyneton Health). Click here to
