Hospice Quinte friend, Brigitte Rittinger, is on a mission to raise $2k that will be donated to Hospice Quinte’s Heart & Home Building Campaign! To date, Brigitte has raised $1k through two Covid-19 compliant fabric sales she’s held at her home. Brigitte has now created 12 one-of-a-kind fabric and denim afghans that she will be selling to help her reach her fundraising goal.

The afghans vary in size and feature unique fabric/ denim designs. A fantastic gift idea, great for the hunting camp or for taking to the hockey rink!

4′ x 5′ (approx.) afghans are $40 each, and 4′ x 6′ (approx.) afghans are $50 each. Pictures can be found in the slideshow below.

If you are interested in purchasing an afghan, please contact Brigitte by email or by calling (613) 966-2686 (please leave a voicemail).

Hospice Quinte would like to say a special thank you to Brigitte for her thoughtful fundraising initiatives, generosity and for helping us to ‘Make It Happen’.


“As our communities join together, we will ensure the new Hospice Quinte Care Centre becomes a reality for those needing safe refuge from the difficult journey of life-limiting illness, death, and grief.”

– THE LATE JOHN WILLIAMS and ROSS MCDOUGALL Co-Chairs, Heart & Home Campaign Committee
