Hospice partners up with former-Premier League footballer

Ex-West Bromwich Albion star, James Chambers, will support the Mary Stevens Hospice through his business, MyFarewell.

James Chambers, MyFarewell founder


We’re delighted to say that we are the first charity partners of MyFarewell, a business set-up by our good friend Jay Chambers to provide a truly wonderful service to families relying on our care here at the Hospice.

As you may well know, one of the most important things we do here at the Hospice is offer our patients the opportunity to create a memory box of photos, objects, stories and personal items, which means so much both to our patients and to their loved ones.

MyFarewell utilises advances in technology to offer that service digitally, giving people the chance to record messages, stories and words of comfort to be passed on to their loved ones when they can no longer be there for them. They do this either through a professional filming service, where they come out to see you and put together a film made up of your messages, photos and favourite music, or through their free app, which is due to launch in November 2017. That app allows you to record messages on your phone or tablet for free, which are stored securely and distributed when the time comes.

From our point of view, we think that this is a wonderful service to be providing, and we look forward to working with Jay and the MyFarewell team to make it as accessible as possible for our families.


We’re reliably informed that as well as generally being a fantastic service, the MyFarewell team are currently running a competition to give away either a GoPro, a city break or 6 months free storage on their new app. That closes on the 20th October and is free to enter, so make sure you get involved in that at:
