Published: 1 September 2017 - Sue Deane

Covers Timber & Builders Merchants is aiming to raise over £30,000 to help local hospices.  The company’s 13 depots will support 11 hospices for both children and adults across the South East.

Between Monday 11 and Saturday 16, September, Covers will hold their third Help for Hospices week and donating £5 for each registered customer that makes a purchase during the event. 

The company has pledged to give at least £20,000 of their own money to kick-start the campaign and further bolster funds.

On Monday 11, September volunteers from the hospices will join Covers staff at their depots for a ‘builders bake off’ to sell homemade cakes and biscuits and on Wednesday 13, September, volunteers from St Wilfrid’s Hospice will be at Covers’ Chichester depot selling bacon rolls in exchange for donations. Raffle tickets will be available to purchase throughout the week with great prizes up for grabs including a £500 Covers Home Improvements voucher.

“We’re delighted to once again be raising money for such fantastic causes,” said chairman Rupert Green. “Here at Covers we pride ourselves on offering support to the local community. I look forward to welcoming as many people as possible to our ‘builders bake off’ and announcing the total amount raised for our third Help for Hospices week in October.”
