The Hospice has had an amazing boost this week as we were presented with a fantastic donation of £3614.35 from Franche Village Club, raised through their brilliant fundraising efforts during 2012-2013. They also donated the same amount to the Kidderminster Mayor’s Charity, Mind.
This wonderful sum was raised by various events throughout the year organised by club president, Rob Hudson and included a black and white ball, rock n roll night and an auction night. The whole club got involved and so the sum raised is also from many individual fundraisers such as sales of pickled onions, and sponsored giving up smoking to name just a few.
Everyone at the club has been so generous, kind and very creative – a big thank you and well done from everyone at KEMP Hospice.
Complementary Therapies Vacancies – We are now looking for well qualified, motivated complementary therapists to volunteer in KEMP’s day Hospice.
Therapists form a valuable part of the care provided to our day patients, with therapies offered during the morning sessions.
Our therapists have told us they enjoy working as part of a multi professional team, acquiring new skills and extending experience in their chosen field.
All our therapy volunteers receive a detailed induction programme and are given on-going training and support and the role is flexible.
If you would like more information on any of our services or if you are interested in finding out more on joining our volunteer teams please call the Hospice on 01562 756000 or email email@example.com
Plester Financial Services (Julian Furnival, Rob Bray and Richard Williams) won the day with 72 points although there was fierce competition from ‘Friday pm off’ (71) and Painters B (71), the Consultants (70) and E.R.Grove & Co (69).
Participants enjoyed a game of golf with colleagues and friends at Kidderminster Golf Club including a nearest the pin and longest drive competition, followed by a buffet meal in the clubhouse.
Donations are still being received for the day but it’s anticipated to raise more than £800 for the Hospice, which will go to providing help and support to local people with life limiting illness.

On the 15th February 2013, the CQC arrived at KEMP Hospice on an unannounced inspection. As regulators, the CQC (Care Quality Commission) check that hospitals, care homes and care services are meeting essential standards.
We, at KEMP Hospice are proud to inform you that we passed the required standards in all the domains inspected!
The domains inspected were:
- Respecting and involving people who use services:
- Care and welfare of people who use services
- Safeguarding people who use services from abuse

We received many positive comments from both the CQC and those who use our services:

Please click here for a short film about how your help this year has made such a positive difference.
The audience enjoyed performances ranging from, I Believe I Can Fly, a Beatles medley, It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year and Rudolph. And just in case this was not enough to put everyone in the Christmas mood the evening ended with local performer, Benny Jay singing ‘Santa Claus is coming to Town’!
The competitors this year were The Spectrum Singers, The Vocalettes, Elmfield Community Choir, The Old Village Store and KEMP Hospice.
The judges, Jonathan Kingston (Bromsgrove School), Tom Campbell (Signal 107 DJ) and Diana Willetts (Got2Sing Choir) had a difficult job on their hands, once again this year, as it was a close fought competition.
Elmfield Community choir was awarded the title of ‘KEMP Hospice – The Last Choir Standing 2012’ with a stunning performance and they were presented with a special engraved trophy and certificate.
Ele Millward commented, “There certainly is a lot of talent in our local community! I think the choirs performances really showed off how much time, dedication and enthusiasm they had invested. We are so grateful to everyone who supported the event.”
The event has raised more than £1700 for KEMP Hospice. This will enable us to continue caring for people with life limiting illness in the Wyre Forest area and give much needed support to their loved ones.
We need your help to support children and young people who are experiencing bereavement in the Wyre Forest and surrounding areas. The aim is to raise £30,000 in 30 weeks to support children and young people who are experiencing bereavement in the Wyre Forest and surrounding areas.
This will enable us to provide local children and young people with residential breaks, group sessions and memorial events. These activities are all aimed at building confidence and helping them come to terms with their loss. It will also help to provide training, advice and support for staff in schools.
