KEMP Hospice is again teaming up with Midcounties Co-operative to produce 40 festive Christmas hampers.

Since the hampers were introduced three years ago, more than £15,000 has been raised as part of local businesses and community groups' festive fundraising activities.

This year, KEMP is looking for more businesses, pubs, clubs and community groups to give a hamper a home in time for Christmas and start raising vital funds for the charity.

In return for a hamper, KEMP is asking that fundraising activities generate at least £100. All the money raised will go towards ensuring that those in the Wyre Forest community receive the care and support they need.

Head of fundraising Cathy Sloan said: “With a minimum of £100, we could fund a patient in the day hospice for a morning, where they can take part in recreational activities, access a range of therapies and benefit from a few hours care under the support of our expert team of palliative care staff.

"Your donation could make their Christmas a little more special this year.”

KEMP offers care and support to individuals, families and carers across the Wyre Forest who are dealing with life-limiting illness and bereavement.
