Vélo Birmingham & Midlands

12th May 2019

Only charity places now available – deadline Friday, 15th March

General ballot tickets for the Vélo Birmingham and Midlands have now sold out – however St Richard’s Hospice has a limited number of charity places available!

Returning bigger and better than before, this challenge features an epic new 100-mile closed road route which will take 17,000 riders on an unforgettable journey through the West Midlands – including two city centres!

Once again starting in the heart of Birmingham, the improved route will see riders cycle through the heart of the 2021 Capital of Culture – Coventry – on the cobbled roads surrounding the city’s historic cathedral.

In between the two city centre adventures, cyclists will enjoy riding through Solihull, Warwickshire, Dudley and Sandwell where they will encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs. Not to mention the tens of thousands of local residents lining the streets to cheer you on!

General entries have now sold out, so to get involved and support St Richard’s at the same time, please contact for your unique registration link.

We are kindly asking participants to raise a minimum of £395 for our hospice care.

Deadline for registrations is 4pm on Friday, 15th March.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.

Latest changes at St Richard’s Hospice

  • In-patient Unit: It is with great sadness that due to stringent infection control measures, we are required to restrict visiting and cannot offer the comprehensive level of service in the way we usually do. However, we will still do our utmost to make sure that each patient and loved one is given the compassion and dignity they deserve. To help families stay in touch we are encouraging virtual visiting using technology such as video calls and apps. This will be discussed and explained to patients and families on admission and we can help provide access to equipment in the hospice. In addition, the IPU nursing team will liaise with each patient and family to arrange short daily visits from the patient's closest loved one and compassionate visiting, as appropriate. Read the full details here.
  • Community Nursing: Community services continue to operate, with a mixture of hands-on care and remote support.
  • Living Well and Family Support Services: Switched to virtual model, with care given remotely over the phone or via video call.
  • Shops: All 19 of our shops and warehouse are temporarily closed. Please do not leave donations outside our shops, as we are unable to collect them at this time.
  • Fundraising: All hospice organised events until the end of August have been postponed. If you wish to support us, please donate to our Resilience Fund.

Please do not visit St Richard’s Hospice if you have a high temperature or new, continuous cough. If you have these symptoms, please stay at home and self-isolate for seven days. See NHS advice on coronavirus.
