Hospice chosen as Charity of the Year by local football club

Sutton Coldfield-based Paget Rangers has named John Taylor Hospice as its principal chosen charity for the 2020/21 season.

The Midland League Division One team has also generously donated a full-page programme advert to the hospice and extended an invitation to the John Taylor Fundraising Team to join them for match day charity collections.

James Parker, Chairman of Paget Rangers, said: “Paget Rangers is committed to developing all young footballers by providing the best coaching and facilities to achieve their full potential and giving them a genuine pathway into first-team football.

“Everyone connected with the club is delighted to announce that our principal chosen charity for the 2020/21 season will be John Taylor Hospice. In addition to their advert appearing all season within our match day programme we will be working with the hospice to raise vital funds to help support the amazing work they do.”

John Taylor Hospice is a charity that provides specialist care for people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones. Today more than 600 people and their families will receive the care they need from John Taylor teams.

Sally Redmond, Community Fundraiser at the hospice (pictured), said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have been chosen as Paget Rangers’ principal charity this season and would like to extend our sincere thanks to the club for supporting our work. We would also like to thank the crowd at our first charity collection for their generosity. Every penny helps us to provide specialist support for local families when they need it most.”

What our patients think

“The care was second to none”

“At such a heartbreaking and difficult time, the nurses and care assistants knew exactly what to do and to say – we’d have been lost without them. The care they provided for my beautiful wife was second to none and I’ll be forever grateful.”

Roger Perks

“Nothing is too much trouble”

“I can’t thank hospice teams enough. From fitting grab rails in my house and ordering a reclining bed, reviewing of all my medication, providing me with new medical equipment and even helping to organise domestic help for us at home – they’ve covered everything but are always willing to do even more.”

Jackie Bannister

“I don’t know where I’d be without them”

“The support I get is truly is invaluable and I honestly don’t know where I’d be without them. I’m able to talk openly about my illness and ask for advice and support if I need it. I’ve made some incredible friends and the hospice is a very special place full of laughter and kindness. “
