Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice has scored a second-year partnership with Birmingham Moseley Rugby Club, with an aim to raise vital awareness and funds for the charity.

Birmingham’s largest independent hospice – which is celebrating 40 years of care this year – has been named the club’s ‘Charity of the Year’, following a successful year of fundraising in 2018/19.

Over the last 12 months, generous supporters of the rugby union club have raised £4,525 for the Hospice, enabling its expert doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, counsellors and more to continue to care for local people living with life-limiting illnesses.

Big-hearted fans raised the impressive funds through bucket collections at home games and the club also hosted some of the charity’s events, including its festive fun run, ‘Jingle Bell Jog’, and its popular 10k walking challenge, ‘Rugby Ramble’.
