St Giles Hospice

The Lymphoedema clinic at St Giles Hospice was the first purpose built clinic in the country and as a result of the Hospice's pioneering work in this treatment the centre is now nationally renowned. The Trust supported the appeal.

The picture shows the Rt Rev Tom Wright, then Bishop of Durham at the opening ceremony.

St Mary's centre

The Trust has been extremely supportive of the development of the St Mary's Centre which now incorporates the Lichfield Heritage Centre.

Steinway Grand Piano

One of the first major projects which the Trust supported was the purchase of a Steinway Grand Piano for the then Civic Hall. An extract from the Minutes of the Trust held on 24th September 1975 reads:

Piano: This had been purchased at a net cost of £4,844 and is installed in the Civic Hall where recently Peter Katin gave an inaugural concert to a packed house.

The picture shows the piano still in use today in the new Lichfield Garrick.
