We are delighted to announce that we will be supporting and fundraising for the Marie Curie West Midlands Hospice based in Solihull. Throughout 2017 we are hoping to raise £7321 to help ‘pay for a day’ of care at the hospice – but we need your help!!
There are many ways to get involved, through the Great Daffodil Appeal, our events which we will be hosting throughout the year, hosting your own events or by just donating money towards our target!

One of the UK’s fastest-growing gym-wear brands has chosen IM Properties’ (IMP) Blythe Valley Park (BVP) as the home for its new global headquarters.
Gymshark was only founded by fitness fanatic Ben Francis five years ago with the help of some school friends, but was propelled from start-up status to global brand by an intense social media strategy – and products loved by workout enthusiasts and professional athletes alike.
With customers in over 170 countries and FY17 predicted annual sale of £42 mill, it’s the current holder of the Fast Track 100 award for Britain’s fastest-growing private enterprise.
Now Gymshark has outgrown its existing premises in Redditch and signed a 10-year lease for a 42,408 sq ft two-storey office on BVP, which is one of the largest lettings on the M42 Corridor in the past five years.
The letting is testament to the strength of BVP, which in the past six months has attracted two 15,000 sq ft prelets from Prologis and Rybrook Holdings and seen PKF Cooper Parry and Abbott Global both relocate to the park from outside of the borough.
Ecology works have now started on the phase two residential development land at Blythe Valley Park behind Virgin Gym. Due to the nature of the ecology works, can we please ask that country park users stick to using the formal or public footpaths when accessing the phase two land.

A huge thanks to Zenith for taking part in a volunteering gardening day at Marie Curie west midlands hospice as part of our sponsorship this year. We have had fantastic feedback from the CSR team at Zenith who said:
‘The staff involved found it a very rewarding day and really enjoyed the opportunity to help. The 2 gentleman that looked after us throughout the day were very informative and seemed to really enjoy the gardens and the work that they do at Marie Curie – we were in good hands for the day.
The gardens are really beautiful and there is obviously a lot of care and attention that goes into maintaining them to such a high standard by the team of volunteers. It was great to see how much is done at such little cost – such as planting plants from seed to either sell or use within the garden as well as the vegetable patches and the compost heaps used to recycle all the waste that the garden produces.
Some of the volunteers talked to people staying at the hospice who had their doors open to enjoy the gardens and the work being done definitely felt appreciated. It clearly makes their stay a more pleasant an experience when they have a nice view and some peace and quiet to enjoy.’
If you or your colleagues are interested in volunteering at the hospice, get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
