Covers’ Help for Hospices aiming to raise £30,000 for charity

Covers Timber & Builders Merchant will once again be hosting its hugely successful charity initiative ‘Covers’ Help for Hospices’ in September, and aiming to raise £30,000 on behalf of local charities.

Now in its fourth year, the charity campaign supports 13 hospices across the South East.

From Monday 10th September until Saturday 15th September, Covers will be donating £5 for each registered customer that makes a purchase during the event. The generous company has also pledged to give at least £20,000 of its own money to kick start the campaign and further bolster funds.

On Monday 10th September, volunteers from the charities will join staff at Covers 14 depots for a ‘builders bake off’ going head to head in the battle for the best bake. Following the competition, all cakes will be available to enjoy in return for a donation to the charity. There will also be a chance to win some top prizes in the raffle including a £500 holiday voucher, iPad and luxury foodie hamper.

Rupert Green, Chairman at Covers, said:

“The Covers’ Help for Hospices campaign has become an annual fixture on our company’s calendar. We are delighted to be running this highly successful campaign for a fourth consecutive year. We hope as many people as possible support us in our mission to raise lots of money for such important community charities.”

Tickets for the raffle will cost £1 each or £10 for a book of 10, and are available to purchase in all Covers’ depots until Friday 28th September 2018.
