Staff at Covers Timber & Builders Merchants in Chichester have raised £230.00 for local hospice charity St Wilfrid’s after walking 5K. The team of 18, which included Covers’ employees and their family members, followed a route across the South Downs.
St Wilfrid’s Hospice provides end of life care both in the community and at its hospice. It supports patients living with a terminal illness, and their family and friends. Services are provided free of charge thanks to the ongoing support of local people and businesses.
Dawn Hogg, sales management support at Covers Chichester, said: “Covers has been a keen supporter of St Wilfrid’s, as well as other local hospices in the communities we operate, for many years. It’s been an absolute pleasure to take on this walking challenge with the team and do something extremely rewarding that benefits the charity and helps St Wilfrid’s to continue their important work supporting families in the area. Congratulations to everyone who took part and thank you to those who donated and helped us to raise money for such a worthy cause.”
Laura Eastwood, head of fundraising at St Wilfrid’s Hospice, added: “Thank you so much to all the staff at Covers and their families who took part and raised vital funds for St Wilfrid’s Hospice. Covers are fantastic supporters of the Hospice and we are extremely grateful for everything they do. Their support makes a real difference to local people’s lives living with terminal illnesses and supporting their family and loved ones. Congratulations to all who took part.”
