Alongside the event, the Wythall Community Association are holding a fun day with food stalls, entertainment and taster sessions of other activities on offer at the park

Why should I choose to fundraise for Primrose Hospice?

We are an independent charity who support patients who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, to manage their illness and symptoms but also achieve their goals. We also support people of all ages who have a loved one living with a life-limiting illness or are bereaved.

One of the many families we’ve supported over many years is The Kershaw Family. They were referred into our support after Olivia and Henry’s parents, Becky and Stephen sadly died.

David – their Uncle said: “There were times in the last nine months, when it’s been pretty hectic and pretty tough for all of us, but Primrose doesn’t dwell on the sadness it offers a way to a better future.”

Find out more about how we support this family and many more people here.

Our support services provide a lifeline for many in North East Worcestershire and can be accessed for free. We can only do this with the generosity of our community and one way you could help is by signing up for the Wythall & Hollywood Fun Run whilst fundraising for us along the way. Thank you for your support.

If you’d like to volunteer, have a stall, do a demonstration, provide music, runner’s pre-race warmups or something else, Wythall Community Association would love to hear from you. Contact them here.
