The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County has surpassed its fundraising goal for a program that provides transportation for patients and their caregivers.

The Hospice’s Face to Face Campaign raised more than $84,000, surpassing the $65,000 goal the organization had set for itself.

A portion of the money raised through this year’s Face to Face campaign will go to replace a van that has been in use since 2002.

More than 6,500 patients and their caregivers get rides to medical appointments or the Wellness Centre through the Hospice’s Fairley Family Transportation Program.

“I can sleep soundly tonight,” program founder John Fairley said Monday after hearing the fundraising total.
