Partner charities 2019-2020

This year we have selected 2 worthy charities to partner our Festive Walk and Fun Run fundraising, whilst we retain half of all proceeds for Lions locally determined causes.  Unfortunately the Fun Run had to be cancelled because of the Corona Virus pandemic which resulted in no income for our charities except the amount raised at the festive Walk:

Solihull Hospital Charity is one of four hospitals within the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. 

The hospital charity exists to support the patients and staff within the hospital by providing items that are over and above those that the NHS can provide.  Be it support for cutting edge medical equipment, research, refurbishment of existing buildings to provide a more comfortable space for patients during their stay or activities for patients with dementia.  With your help and with the help of the Knowle and Dorridge Lions we can raise funds that directly benefit locals in the area. 

All the money raised from the events held by the Knowle and Dorridge Lions will be donated to Solihull Hospital Charity will be spent on services that enhance the stay of both our younger patients by way of the transformation of the Children’s Outpatients area and also towards providing an Older Persons Activities Coordinator. 

We would like to thank you in advance for your support of these events and in turn supporting Solihull Hospital Charity.

CLIC Sargent – Young Lives vs Cancer are the UK’s leading charity for children and young people (under the age of 25) with cancer. We provide emotional, practical and financial support to children, young people and their families to try and limit the damage that cancer causes, outside of to their health. CLIC Sargent currently supports 413 children, young people and their families from across the West Midlands at our bases at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Across the Midlands, our incredible team of social workers, play specialists and nurse educators are on hand to do everything from talking to schools, employers and mortgage providers to make sure families are in the best position possible, to providing counselling and financial support and advice. On average the cost of living for a family goes up by £600 per month when a child is diagnosed with cancer, one way CLIC Sargent supports is by providing diagnosis, essentials and hardship grants to try and provide some stability when families are struggling. Last year the CLIC Sargent support team based in Birmingham enabled 440 grants for families in the West Midlands, totalling £88,140 to help ease the financial burden on families dealing with childhood cancer in our community.
