Enthusiastic fundraiser and respected Stourbridge publican, Chris Foxall, is once again organising an action packed Charity Fun Day, in aid of The Mary Stevens Hospice. The event takes place on Sunday August 25, in the car park of The Crown, Hagley Road, Stourbridge. The Crown has declared a target of £10,000 for this year and we would really encourage everyone to go along and help them reach their target. The afternoon of fun commences at 2.30pm with a BBQ, children’s entertainment, such as face painting, a bouncy castle, a charity auction and live bands performing during the afternoon and evening. The event costs £10 for adults and £5 for younger fun seekers (8 – 14 years) with under 8’s free, which includes limitless food and live entertainment. Tickets are available in advance from the Crown. Vicki Rowles, Fundraising Development Manager at the Hospice said “Chris has proved to be a longstanding and committed supporter of Mary Stevens Hospice and we are most grateful to him, his friends and regulars for organising this event. It promises to be a great afternoon of entertainment whilst raising much needed funds for the Hospice.”

We might be fed up with the showery weather, but the Fundraising Team at Mary Stevens Hospice are urging local schools, business and community members to bring summer into their lives by joining in with ‘Shorts and Shades’ Day on, Friday 21st June. Day therapies patients at the Hospice are getting into the spirit of this by taking part every day this week, we have a sandpit set up in our conservatory and patients are enjoying a real seaside theme with fish n’ chip lunches and a traditional ice-cream van from Midlands Super Cream kindly coming along to serve dessert. Vicki Rowles, Head of Fundraising at the Hospice said, “It is fabulous that our Day therapies patients are joining in and have a fun time with this. Most companies have occasional dress down Fridays to support a charity and it would be great to have the support of hundreds of businesses around Dudley Borough for this special Hospice Day, with their staff donating just £1 to wear their summer gear to work. Schools can also get on board by holding a ‘Shorts and Shades’ or ‘Shorts and Caps’ Mufti Day and letters have gone out to over 100 schools inviting them to participate”. Vicki added, “It would be great to receive photographs so that we could create a gallery for our website”.
