MARIE Curie’s Big Build Appeal has passed its halfway mark, with over £3.5 million raised so far.
The charity needs to raise £7 million to build a new state-of-the-art hospice on Marsh Lane, Solihull.
Local residents, businesses and organisations have been working tirelessly in recent months to raise the much-needed funds for the new hospice.
Simon Eustace, who was diagnosed with cancer when he was 16 and whose family has used the Marie Curie services, added: “Every penny counts, so please get involved.”
Simon has signed up to cycle the 465km from Solihull to Amsterdam later this year to raise extra funds.
The new facility is expected to be completed by next year and will include a day therapy unit, outpatient facilities, extra rooms and a nursing service.
