Local hospices to spread the love this Valentine’s Day

Hospices from across the West Midlands will join forces this Valentine's Day

Hospices from across the West Midlands will join forces this Valentine’s Day to show their supporters just how much they appreciate them.

It’s traditionally a day when many of us show our loved ones how much we care. Rather than saying it with flowers or chocolates, hospices from across the region have added their own twist to a Valentine’s Day gift.

Together with volunteers they’ll be handing out iconic Love Heart sweets to local communities with a special message: “Love Your Local Hospice.”

As well as thanking supporters by sweetening their day, the organisations taking part hope to raise awareness of hospice care amongst adults and children who have a life-limiting illness.

Each year, hospices across the West Midlands care for over 26,000 adult patients and over 1,500 children. They also provide care, support and practical help for their families.

Darren Dudley, Assistant Communications Officer, will be representing John Taylor Hospice in Birmingham city centre on 14 February. He said: “Love Your Local Hospice brings together 16 hospices from across the region who provide specialist and individualised care in hospices, in the community and in people’s own homes.

“Our supporters – whether they be people who donate, fundraise for us or volunteer their time – all help us to continue providing this care and we’re so thankful to them.”

Joining the #TweetYourSweet event with John Taylor Hospice on 14 February are Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, St Giles Hospice, Acorns Children’s Hospice Trust, Mary Ann Evan Hospice and The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

You can grab your sweet treats between 12pm-2pm at locations across the West Midlands including:
• Gracechurch Shopping Centre in Sutton Coldfield
• Outside Birmingham New Street, Nuneaton, Atherstone and Coleshill Parkway train stations
• Boldmere Road (near to Age Concern) in Sutton Coldfield
• Brindley Place, Birmingham

“We’ll also be handing out business cards on the day with a website link for more information,” added Darren.
