Hospice is triple award finalist

John Taylor Hospice could pick up three prizes this autumn after being named a finalist in both local and national awards.

The hospice has been shortlisted in the UK Social Enterprise Awards in the Employee Engagement category for its work in promoting the wellbeing of staff. It has also been named a finalist as the Charity of the Year in the Birmingham Awards.

And CEO Penny Venables has been chosen as a finalist in the Services to Charity category of the English Women’s Awards.

All of the awards pay tribute to the work undertaken by hospice teams in caring for patients and their families and supporting colleagues.

“We are delighted that our work has been highlighted with these award nominations,” said Penny. “Our staff are dedicated to making every moment matter for our patients and their families every day and it’s always rewarding to see this dedication receiving regional and national recognition in this way.”

What our patients think

“I’d have really struggled without them”

“They’ve been ever so good to me and that’s why I wanted to fundraise and do something to help just like they’ve helped me.”

Philomena Sharpe

“The impact they had will never be forgotten”

“The community nurses were so helpful and they’re lovely people. They put my mind at rest and it’s such a comfort to know you’re not on your own.”

Jackie Day

“An angel sent into my life”

“I can’t thank Angie (patient and family support worker) enough for everything she’s done for us. She’s so reliable and professional – a wonderful person. She took away all these worries and was there for me in my time of need.”

Patricia Smith-Evans

“I’ve really enjoyed it”

“The FAB Programme has helped me to get fitter and my walking is better. Everyone is really nice at the hospice, they’re friendly and they’re good company. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in a similar situation to me.”
