An auction of south west artists' works will raise money for the Warrnambool and District Community Hospice (WDCH) service on Saturday night at Deakin University.
Warrnambool artist Faye Chenoweth is donating a painting of the Hopkins River view her husband Geoff enjoyed while in hospice home care until his death in 2016.
"It was joyful, Geoff died at home peacefully and we felt we were blessed his suffering had come to an end and he had got his wish," he said.
The volunteers from the hospice service are all angels.Faye Chenoweth
"(Dr Eric Fairbank) came in and asked if I had a painting to go in the auction and I thought that view reminds me of the hospice and everyone coming in to enable Geoff to stay in his home and to look at that scene every day.
"Now that scene is a comfort to me, to see it every day and watch it changing, it's got so many memories."
The WDCH service provides specially-trained volunteers to help terminally-ill people die in their own home.
Community engagement coordinator Catherine Bailey said the service was grateful to the artists who had donated their work for the auction.
"We continually need funds to do assessments of people needing the service, and to train, mentor and support our amazing team of volunteers," she said.
The Warrnambool and District Community Hospice Art Auction will start at 6pm in the Deakin University oval Pavilion. Tickets are available through Ticketebo.
