Former staff and volunteers who have worked for John Taylor Hospice over the decades are being invited to a special reunion.
The Birmingham hospice is celebrating its 110th anniversary next year and is inviting all former colleagues to come together this autumn to meet old friends and share memories.
The event at the hospice in Grange Road, Erdington, takes place on Thursday 10 October and all former staff and volunteers are invited.
John Taylor Hospice was founded in 1910 and has been based at The Grange in Grange Road since 1948. Its staff and volunteers have cared for thousands of patients and their families over the past century.
Hospice head of brand and media Diane Parkes said: “Our 110th anniversary is a really special event for John Taylor Hospice and we want to share it not just with our current staff but also with the hundreds of people who have been part of our story.
“It is the dedicated work of these former colleagues which has ensured we are the hospice we are today. We want to say thank you, give them a chance to meet with old friends and share our plans for our 110th anniversary.”
The evening, which begins at 6.30pm and is due to finish at 8.30pm, will include refreshments, information about the anniversary celebrations and a chance to view old photographs and other mementoes. The reunion is free but people are asked to register in order for the hospice to manage catering.
Diane added: “We have been doing lots of research into our history as part of the 110th anniversary and we will be sharing the results of some of that research at the event. And we’d love former staff and volunteers to bring along pictures and other memorabilia on the evening.”
