St Giles Hospice is 30!
2013 is an extra special year for St Giles Hospice as we celebrate 30 years of providing the very best care for local people.
From humble beginnings when the hospice was established at the former vicarage of St Giles Church, Whittington, in 1983, our specialist caring services have gone from strength to strength.
Every week we now provide care and support for more than 500 local people across the Midlands at our three facilities in Whittington, Sutton Coldfield and Walsall and in patients’ own homes – and this has all been possible thanks to the generous support of the local community.
We have plenty of exciting events and activities planned for our 30th anniversary year, and there are many different ways you can help us celebrate by showing your support for St Giles.
A celebratory bed push took place on Friday 12th April to mark the official 30th anniversary of St Giles Hospice. Twenty teams from St Giles and local businesses each took on a leg of the journey, pushing a bed from the hospice in Fisherwick Road, Whittington into the centre of Lichfield and back again.
