BRA-B-Q fundraiser

Fundraising for Birmingham Hospice (formerly Birmingham St Mary’s and John Taylor Hospices)
We provide expert end of life care to make every moment matter.


The BRA-B-Q has been inspired by a bloody marvellous woman called Fran. Last October, at the age of 49, Fran was diagnosed with primary breast cancer and secondary bone cancer. It was a big shock for her, her husband Laurence, her family and her friendshowever Fran and Laurence’s attitude has remained stoic throughout. Less than a year since diagnosis and post Chemo but on medication for life, Fran is determined to do something for good, to turn a negative into a positive. 

And so, the BRA-B-Q was born.

John Taylor Hospice provides specialist palliative and end of life care for people in Birmingham and across the West Midlands. Both at the hospice in Erdington and in the local community, care is ‘Taylor-made’ to the individual ensuring people receive support how, where and when they need it.Today more than 600 people and their families will receive the care they need from John Taylor teams. John Taylor Hospice’s staff and volunteers are totally dedicated to making every moment matter for everyone they care for.
