Henley coach company donates 'vital' funds to Solihull's Marie Curie hospice

Solihull Editorial 26th Feb, 2024   0

A HENLEY coach company clicked in and headed over to the Solihull Marie Curie hospice to make a generous donation.

Johnsons Coaches staff handed over £4,750 to the Marsh Lane hospice to help people living with terminal illness and their loved ones.

The coach team raised funds during 2023 through customer raffles, events, and by taking part in the Marie Curie 100km Walking Challenge in November.

Kyran Flynn, general manager at Johnsons Coaches said: “In 2023 our staff voted to support Marie Curie as part of their fundraising efforts for the year, because of the vital work they do supporting local people at the end of their life.

“Through visits to the Hospice our staff have seen first hand how Marie Curie staff are working tirelessly to give people, their family and friends the best care and experience to the end and we’re proud to support them.”

The Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull offers in-patient care, a Support and Wellbeing Hub, specialist care at home and bereavement support to adults, children and young people and helped 5,898 people in 2022/2023.

Peter Sara, Marie Curie’s senior community fundraiser said: “It’s thanks to our amazing corporate partners like Johnsons Coaches that Marie Curie has been there for those affected by terminal illness over the past 75 years, but today our work is more needed than ever.

“We know that everyone will be affected by dying, death and bereavement and our aim is to make sure that everyone has the best possible end of life experience.

“With the continued support of businesses in the Midlands we can ensure a future where everyone gets the care they need.”
