Hospices across the West Midlands will once again be joining forces to help raise awareness of hospice care for adults and children who have a life-limiting illness.

Love Your Local Hospice is an annual campaign that brings together 16 hospices from across the West Midlands to increase understanding of the work we do, providing expert care and support to people living with terminal illness and to their families and loved ones.

Following the success of last year’s ‘Love your Local Hospice’ campaign (including the TV ad below), we’d like to ask you to join us this February and get involved!

We have 16 charity shops across the West Midlands, which raise significant funds for Birmingham St Mary’s. Did you know, on average, one bag of donations raises £16 which could pay for an hour of specialist nursing care? So please show your love for your local hospice by doing the following:

In addition, this Valentine’s Day we'll be spreading the love in Birmingham. Look out for us in the city centre from 12-2pm to get your special #LoveYourLocalHospice love hearts. Just don't forget to ‘Tweet Your Sweet’!

No matter how you choose to show your love this February, we appreciate all of your support!
