Hansen & Cole Funerals is committment to supporting the community of Wollongong, the Illawarra and surrounding areas.
We support and participate in a wide range of community programs as our funeral directors believe in giving back to your community.
Biggest Morning Tea
For the biggest and best Biggest Morning Tea anywhere in Wollongong and the Illawarra, look no further than Hansen & Cole Funerals as we are proud to support this important national charity event.
For many years Hansen & Cole Funerals has been hosting colourful and tasty morning tea events to support the Cancer Council's drive for funds to promote research into cancer.
Over the years, Hansen & Cole Funerals has raised thousands of dollars for the Cancer Council while at the same time making new friends in the area, as the community comes in for a cup of tea, a sweet or a savory treat and some good conversation - all for a gold coin donation!
More information about the Cancer Council's Biggest Morning Tea is available.
Legacy is one of Australia's best regarded community organisations. Established in 1923, the organisation supports the families of deceased veterans from all branches of Australia's Armed Forces.
Made up of volunteers, Legacy today is dedicated to caring for and assisting 115,000 widows as well as 1,900 children and dependents with a disability. Hansen & Cole Funerals supports Legacy's fund-raising activities.
We also support Legacy's volunteers with coping with grief information, and give our customary care and support to the families Legacy supports whenever it is needed.
Lion's Recycle for Sight
The Lions are one of the world's best known community organisations and the Recycle for Sight program is one of their most important initiatives.
Eye glasses are collected, repaired and cleaned, and then sent to communities in the developing world where they are distributed to people who otherwise would have no access to them. A simple pair of eye glasses can literally have a life changing effect for the recipient.
Hansen & Cole Funerals assists this program through the placement and promotion of eye glasses collection boxes in our funeral homes and around our communities.
Together with the help of the community, we have sent plenty of eye glasses to the Lions for distribution to communities currently without access to the medical services or the funds required to address vision impairment.
More information about the Lions Recycle for Sight Program is available on the official Lions website.
