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

“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.”
