Covers to take part in Moonlight Walk in memory of colleague

Published: 12 April 2018 - Kiran Grewal

A team of 33 colleagues from Covers Timber and Builders Merchants in Chichester will be taking part in St Wilfrid’s Hospice Moonlight Walk on Saturday May 5 in memory of a loyal colleague who sadly passed away in January.

Kev Starling, who worked at the company for over 40 years, lost his battle with cancer whilst being cared for at St Wilfrid’s Hospice after being diagnosed with the disease in November. The team at Covers will undertake the 5-mile overnight walk through Chichester in a bid to raise a minimum amount of £1,000 for the charity.

St Wilfrid’s Hospice cares for terminally ill patients, whilst providing support to their families. Only 15% of the charity’s funding is provided through the NHS, so it relies heavily on the generosity of donations and fundraising events.


This year marks the tenth anniversary of the hospice’s Moonlight Walk. To celebrate, they are hoping that 1,000 walkers register and raise £100,000 for the charity.

Managing director at Covers, Henry Green said: “Kev was incredibly popular with his colleagues and a great friend to all those that met him. He is sorely missed by everyone at Covers, so we are pleased to be honouring his memory with this walk on behalf of the hospice that took such great care of him. It will be a physical and emotional challenge for all those taking part and I would like to wish the whole team the very best of luck.”
