Charities We Currently Support
St Giles' Hospice
The hospice was founded in 1983 by the Reverend Paul Brothwell, originally to improve the care of local people dying with cancer. They now support people in our community whose illnesses may not be curable, such as cancer, motor neurone disease, heart failure, MS and respiratory disease. They also offer support for families and helpers.
Their dedicated team provides individually-tailored care either at the hospice or in patients’ own homes across our communities.
The range of specialist services is provided free of charge to those who need it. Although St Giles receives some funding from the Government, they rely heavily on donations and fundraising.
The Pathway Project
This is a domestic and sexual abuse service based in Lichfield and Tamworth, Staffordshire.
They offer a range of support services, and run two refuges in confidential locations of the Midlands. They have been operating for over 25 years helping adults and children overcome domestic abuse and Violence.
Their vision is to build a future where adults and children affected by domestic and sexual abuse live in safety and free from fear.
