Our partnership with St Mary’s Hospice began in 2015. Our consultant Leanne sadly passed away the January of that year and the hospice provided her end of life care. We continue to support this amazing organisation in honour of Leanne and the great work they do; our relationship with St Mary’s is really important to us and the entire office remain committed to their cause.
“Venn Group have been supporters of Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice for a number of years now, and every single year they make a huge difference. Whether they are throwing one of their managers into ‘jail’, creating beautiful Christmas wreaths or flipping pancakes they always do it with enthusiasm and show that they really care for the Hospice and believe in what we do. We are privileged to have support from such a wonderful office in Birmingham and truly look forward to the times where we are able to work alongside and collaborate with them. The question to ask now is – what’s next?”
Abigail Coulson, Corporate Partnerships Coordinator, Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice
Over the years we have locked up bosses, run half marathons, cycled coast to coast, boxed, decorated the hospice and run 10km to raise money. Central to these efforts has been our Birmingham Senior Manager, Thomas Brown.
Two years after completing a half marathon, Thomas was approached to take on the challenge of running the full twenty-six miles at the London Marathon 2021 in continued support of St Mary’s. The first lockdown inspired him to keep running, and what better event to aim for.
‘The work that St. Mary’s do is absolutely vital to the families and loved ones of the people they care for. I've been raising money for Birmingham St. Mary's Hospice for a number of years now and as I have found out more about the work that they do and the support they offer to those in their care I have been inspired to help them raise as much money as possible to maximise the affect they can have. They are a special bunch of people that go above and beyond to provide families and individuals with care as it should be in the moments that they really need it.'
Thomas Brown, Senior Manager, Birmingham
