Exhibition moves to Erdington Library

John Taylor Hospice’s Moments that Matter exhibition has found a new home over the summer – Erdington Library.

The library has offered to host the exhibition until the end of August – giving more people the chance to see the children’s pictures.

The exhibition features 30 drawings, painting and collages all inspired by the children’s special moments. The pictures are all winners in the hospice’s Moments that Matter competition.

Head of Community Engagement Mark Jones said: “It’s brilliant that the exhibition now has a new life at Erdington Library. We had a great response to the pictures while they were on display at Oikos Café during May and we hope visitors to the library will now enjoy seeing the winning artwork.”

The competition and exhibition were held by John Taylor Hospice and Oikos Café to mark Dying Matters Awareness Week – a national campaign to encourage conversation around death and dying.

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. “
