It was a pleasure to join the fund-raising initiative in Pelsall last weekend at The Railway Inn for Acorns Hospice.

The wide variety of events taking place including the car boot sale and live music culminating in a quiz helped to raise valuable funds for the local hospice.

I am looking forward to visiting the hospice in Walsall tomorrow and meeting Chief Executive, Toby Porter and the staff and hearing more about all of the vital work they do to deliver the highest quality palliative care.
