Share the love this Valentine’s Day

For many, 14 February is a day dedicated to love, affection and togetherness. Show how much you care by making a charitable gift to John Taylor Hospice on behalf of your Valentine.

Maybe your partner isn’t a fan of flowers or you find it difficult to pick the perfect present? If hospice care is a cause close to your Valentine’s heart, then forgo the cards and roses this year – instead making a charitable donation to help local people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones.

For 110 years, John Taylor teams have been supporting people at the end of their lives and every day more than 600 people receive the very best care either at the hospice or at home. As a charity, the hospice relies heavily on the kindness and generosity of donations to provide comfort and relief from pain, ensure that people are not alone and to give families the chance to spend time precious time together.

By making a donation in lieu of a Valentine’s gift, you’ll be doing something truly special and joining a community that helps make every moment matter for families across Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield.

Here’s the difference that your Valentine’s Day gift will make:

  • £5 provides a home cooked meal for someone being cared for in our Inpatient Unit
  • £10 can fund one-to-one practical help and advice for people about benefits, housing, employment, care costs and will writing
  • £16 will provide an hour of caring at home

It’s easy to make a donation through our website, over the phone or in person. Your donation helps us to continue being there for people when they need us most.

Thank you so much for showing your love for John Taylor Hospice this Valentine’s Day. Your support really means the world to us and is helping to make every moment matter for hundreds of local people every day. Thank you. ❤️️

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. “
