It costs £15,055,467 to run both Birmingham St Mary’s and John Taylor Hospice sites per year, which equates to: £1,254,622 per month, £289,528 per week, £41,361 per day and £1,723 per hour.

As a registered charity, we rely on voluntary donations. However you choose to support us, you have the power to transform the way somebody is cared for towards the end of their life.

Here’s the impact your donations have:

£15 can buy a teddy bear with a recording of a loved one’s voice for a bereaved child to treasure as a keepsake
£19 will pay for one hour of Day Hospice service, supporting people to live well, manage their symptoms and take part in therapeutic activities
£27 pays for a bereavement support session to help a family member cope with the loss of a loved one
£42 pays for a specialist bereavement support session to help a child coping with the loss of a loved one
£69 pays for a community nurse to visit someone at home, helping them manage their symptoms and coordinating their care
£83 covers the cost of a home visit from an occupational therapist. This helps people become as independent as possible so they can keep doing everyday things – whether that’s simply getting around the house, cooking a family meal, going to the shops or seeing mates down the pub
£237 could pay for a whole day of a community nurses care, giving patients and families the support they need in the comfort of their own homes
£492 could pay for 24 hours of nursing support for a person being cared for on one of our inpatient units
£1,035 could pay for someone to have round-the-clock expert palliative and end of life care on one of our inpatient units
