2013 is a special fundraising year for the Midlands based St Giles Hospice, as they are celebrating 30 years of providing specialist caring services.
From humble beginnings, the hospice now has three Birmingham locations, in Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Whittington, giving support to over 500 patients suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses.
They receive high quality free of charge specialist care, and support is also given to families and carers.
This has all been made possible thanks to the generous support of the community and volunteers.
As a family run firm with a garden centre in Sutton Coldfield, Halls Garden Supplies were pleased to recently donate an arbour to the hospice, enabling staff, patients and visitors to relax in the hospice's gardens overlooking attractive countryside.
David Hall, who made the presentation, said, 'As a local firm we don't hesitate to put something back into the community we serve.'
'The arbour is manufactured using low maintenance and extremely durable hardwood, it will be a garden feature that will benefit the hospice for many years to come.'
Mike Lewis is a regular visitor to the Sutton centre, where he is looking forward to using the arbour to observe the birds that he feeds.
Supportive Care Co-ordinator Julie Nicholas thanked Halls for their generous donation, saying that the arbour will make a tremendous difference. Enjoying the fresh air and stunning views will be superb.
She added, 'Halls is a fantastic company and it's been great to work with them.'
St Giles spends over £8m per year but only a third of this comes from the government, so the charity relies heavily on donations and fund raising activities.
There are plenty of events planned every year, anyone wanting further information should visit www.stgileshospice.com
