Independent timber and builders merchant Covers has donated more than £100,000 to local hospices over the past five years as part of its Help for Hospices initiative.
This year Covers generously contributed £27,000 to twelve local hospices, which was presented to actor and charity patron, Christopher Timothy, by Covers’ chairman, Rupert Green.
The funding will be allocated among the twelve charities, providing care and support to patients and their families.
The charities that have benefited from Covers’ generosity over the last five years include St Peter & St James Hospice & Continuing Care Centre, Hospice in the Weald, Martlets Hospice, St Barnabas Hospice, Chestnut Tree House, Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity, Rowans Hospice, St Wilfrid’s Hospice, St Catherine’s Hospice, Naomi House and Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice.
Rupert Green, chairman of Covers, said: “Supporting the hospices in our region is the principal way we as a company contribute across the communities we operate in. We are delighted that our donations of more than £100,000 continue to help the incredible work they do to care for patients and their families. The hospices provide expert and caring support at the end of life which we know from personal experience makes that time much more bearable for them and their loved ones.”
