Covers donates £30,000 to hospice charities

Published: 14 October 2021 - James Mead

Covers Timber & Builders Merchants has donated £30,000 to hospice charities, following the return of its hugely successful fundraising initiative Help for Hospices. The money will be divided between twelve charities.

 

The charities that have benefited include Demelza Hospice in Sittingbourne, Kent; Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham, Surrey; St Barnabas House in Worthing, West Sussex; Martlets Hospice in Brighton, East Sussex; St Wilfrid’s Hospice in Bosham, West Sussex; St Catherine’s Hospice in Crawley, West Sussex; St Peter & St James Hospice & Continuing Care Centre in Lewes, East Sussex; The Rowans Hospice in Waterlooville, Hampshire; Mountbatten Hospice in Southampton, Hampshire; Hospice in the Weald in Tunbridge Wells, Kent; and children’s hospices, Naomi House and Jacksplace in Winchester, Hampshire; and Chestnut Tree House in Arundel, West Sussex.

In addition to Covers donating £5 for each registered customer that made a purchase during the event, staff at Covers’ 14 depots, along with volunteers from the hospices, came together to host a Best of British themed ‘builders bake off’ and bake sale. All proceeds raised from the bake sale went towards the final fundraising amount.

Covers’ Help for Hospices has been running since 2015 and the company has now given more than £185,000 to the hospices it supports.

Rupert Green, Chairman of Covers, said:

“We were thrilled to see the return of our Help for Hospices campaign after it was cancelled last year. Donating to hospices in the communities we operate in is extremely important to us and the principal way we show our support for the vital work they do for patients and their loved ones. Thank you to everyone who joined us during the week and helped us to raise funds. We hope the money will make a real difference to the hospices and the people they care for.”
