How have I made a difference to hospice care?

As restrictions continue to be tightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic, your support is needed now more than ever! Our fundraising campaigns/events continue to be cancelled or impacted to comply with government rules, however hospice care cannot be restricted and we need to continue to raise the £9 million needed a year to run our hospice services.

With over 64% of our funding coming from voluntary funds, you really do make a difference to individuals living with life-limiting illness across Birmingham and Sandwell. By taking part in the Picture Pawfect Pet Competition you can help people to continue to receive free care and support from our amazing doctors and nurses in the Hospice, in the community and within people’s homes – thank you.
