Family of fundraisers raise almost £2,500 for Birmingham Hospice!

Earlier this year, Jane and her family all decided to take part in different fundraisers to raise money for our hospice in memory of their dear family friend, Dennis, who died at Selly Park site in June 2023.

In total, this fabulous family of fundraisers have raised almost £2,500 that will help care for more local people, and their families, just like Dennis.

Jane said: “Fundraising is so important to ensure that Birmingham Hospice can continue to provide their amazing care. Although it’s a hospice, it doesn’t feel sad, and all the staff are incredibly friendly – it feels like everyone truly loves what they do.

“The building and surroundings were beautiful. We were able to take Dennis into the gardens and it was quite overwhelming for him as he hadn’t been able to go outside for so long, before being in the hospice. We only wish he’d gone into the hospice sooner.”
