The Jimmy Hill Legacy Fund is a fundraising initiative in order to provide opportunities to improve the quality of life for those who need it most, in memory of the late Jimmy Hill OBE, who passed away on 19th December 2015.

Jimmy Hill played a huge role during his time with Coventry City, a period which saw him take the positions of Manager, Managing Director and Chairman of the club driving the ‘Sky Blue Revolution’ in the 1960s and 1970s.

Jimmy Hill’s success had a massive impact on the city of Coventry and the Legacy Fund will provide a fitting tribute in his memory, supporting a number of causes that were close to his heart. (Applications are now open for local community groups and projects to receive money from the Jimmy Hill Legacy Fund - CLICK HERE)

Zoë’s Place Trust is a registered Charity providing palliative, respite and end of life care to babies and infants aged from birth to five years suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The staff at Zoë’s Place provide care and support 24hrs a day for both the child and family. 

Zoë’s Place offers parents and carers a chance to recharge their batteries or to spend time with their other children. The value of this respite care cannot be underestimated, and many families say that they simply would not be able to cope without the help and support of the Zoe’s Place team.

The Hospice is designed to be a `home away from home’ in which the children feel comfortable and are able to get the most out of the very special facilities.  Alongside the care that is offered to the children they also support the whole family through their parent support network and the sibling groups.

If you would like to get involved in our Christmas Auction then you can access the auction page HERE and have the opportunity to gain some incredible gifts as well as supporting two extremely worthwhile organisations.
