Kind-hearted Firm Gives Christmas Gift

A kind-hearted Hagley business has stepped in to do their bit to help bring a dose of Christmas cheer to patients at a Stourbridge hospice. 

Staff at Mary Stevens Hospice wanted to make sure all their patients could enjoy a Christmas tree outside their window on the big day, but struggled to find enough trees at short notice.

That’s when a kind-hearted local business, Hagley Christmas Trees, stepped in and donated ten trees yesterday afternoon.

A spokesperson for the charity said: “Not only did they offer to donate 10 trees to our patients, [but] they also delivered them within an hour of coming off the phone with us because we were worried about how we were going to get them…

“We know we say it a lot, but… we can’t tell you how emotional it gets [at the hospice] when something like this happens.

“In our moments of need as a charity, we are blessed and privileged to have people like Howard and his team at Hagley Christmas Trees who step up and do truly incredible things for our patients.

“When our patients wake up tomorrow, they will have a Christmas tree to enjoy and that is solely down to the generosity of the guys, who are also making our Christmas Treecycle possible in a couple of weeks.

“There are heroes throughout this community, many of whom will never tell you the wonderful things they have done for those most in need.”
