Secret Garden Ball to celebrate anniversary year

John Taylor Hospice has announced a magical theme for its 110th anniversary ball.

The charity, which has provided care for local families since 1910, will host a Secret Garden Ball at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull on Friday 5 June 2020.

Tickets and sponsorship opportunities for the glittering event are available now and, as well as marking a significant milestone, the hospice hopes to raise as much money as possible to help support its vital work.

Eloise Davidson, Corporate Fundraising Manager at John Taylor Hospice, said: “Our charity balls are always fantastic fun and this event promises to be extra special as we celebrate our 110th anniversary year.

“At our magical Secret Garden Ball guests can enjoy a VIP drinks reception and a delicious three-course meal. Throughout the night there will be live entertainment and lots of exciting surprises – as well as the chance to win some fabulous prizes in our auction and raffle.

“Everyone who supports us by buying a ticket, or through sponsorship, will be helping to provide much-needed care for families in Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield and ensuring that care can continue to be there for more families into the future.”

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. “
