“We are proud to have spent another year supporting The Mary Stevens Hospice. From the early days when the idea of a Hospice in Stourbridge was first shared with funeral directors - my late father, John, offered our mortuary facilities free of charge whenever they were needed – to 2017.

“Both as a business, and individually, we are honoured to be ambassadors for The Mary Stevens Hospice and feel so passionate about the work that they do.

“We look forward to many, many more years of association and support.”

Ruth Longville, Fundraising Office Manager for Mary Stevens Hospice, added:

“H.Porter & Sons have supported the work of our Hospice for many years and we are delighted to continue this relationship into 2018.

“We'd love to see our supporters enjoying this bring and buy morning and kicking off the new year by getting along to The Lounge, and trying to win that well-deserved bottle of bubbly!

“We're privileged to receive the continued support of H.Porter & proud to call them a devoted partner of this charity.”
