Primrose Patron and MP Sajid Javid raises 20k for Hospice

We were delighted to hear that Patron of Primrose Hospice, Bromsgrove MP and Health Secretary Sajid Javid once again was going to be fundraising for Primrose Hospice and Family Support centre.

Mr Javid has raised over £20,000 for us after taking on his 10km run. This is over £7000 more than last year!

Unfortunately he was unable to take place in the scheduled race on Sunday 12th December due to urgent meetings on the surge of the Omicron variant. He decided to do his own run later on that day all whilst taking work-related phone calls throughout his attempt! Despite this he still managed a very impressive time of 59 minutes and 44 seconds.

Sajid Javid MP said: “I was determined to complete a 10km run in support of Primrose Hospice, despite a busy working weekend! I am delighted to have raised over £20,000 for this fantastic local charity, which supports so many local residents and their families.”

“I am extremely grateful to everyone who supported me. Your generous contributions are going to a fantastic cause.”

CEO of Primrose Hospice, David Burrell said: “We were delighted when Bromsgrove MP, Sajid Javid said he was up for the challenge of running 10km once again for Primrose Hospice. We’re so grateful for the incredible amount of money he has raised surpassing his target for this year.”

“It costs us £20,500 to run our Primrose Hospice & Family Support Centre for one day so this donation is essential for us to support more people living with life-limiting illnesses and families in North East Worcestershire. Thank you to Sajid and everyone who has donated.”
