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

“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.”
