HANDMADE Burger Co’s ‘Give Back’ campaign kicked off last month and as their official media partner the Solihull News will be supporting a number of charities located in the borough.

The popular restaurant in Touchwood is donating 25p from each burger in the ‘give back range’ to charity and all that’s left to decide is what worthwhile cause receives the funds.

This week we spoke with Patricia Hill from the hard-working Solihull Cancer Support Group to find out exactly what their group offered.

“A smiling friendly face will always greet you,” the chairperson said.

“When you hear the word cancer, it can be so terrifying but at our group there is always someone that can help you.

“Our volunteers, healers, and members all have a different story to tell and experience to share so there is no need to fight the problems alone.”

Earlier this week rugby players from Birmingham & Solihull Bees posed in their pants in support of Prostate Awareness Week which falls in the same month as Ovarium awarness.

Public Relations manager Jo Kilby said the Bees were delighted to show their support for the important charity.

“The guys take personal health away from the pitch very seriously too so they were more than happy to bare almost all to help raise awareness.”

Solihull Cancer Support Group hold regular meetings at the SIMTR Conference Centre at the back of Damson Parkway Hospital where anybody can attend.

Whether it be cancer patients, people who have had cancer, relatives and friends of those with cancer and those who have bereaved through cancer, the group is open to all.

During the welcoming gatherings people can receive information on subjects such as diet, vitamins, exercise and relaxation.

Solihull residents can help by visiting Handmade Burger Co. and voting for their favourite charity.

The winner will take the overall funds raised through the scheme.

Patricia says funding is really important at the group and if they were to receive the money it would go a long way to helping support the sufferers in Solihull.
