Covers Timber & Builders Merchants are aiming to raise £25,000 to help local hospices across the South East, including Martlets.

Between Monday 12th and Saturday 17th September Covers will be holding their second Help for Hospices Week and donating £1 for each registered customer that makes a purchase during the week. 

The company has also pledged to give a huge £20,000 of their own money to kick start the campaign.

On Friday 16th September volunteers from Marlets Hospice will join Covers staff at the Brighton depot for a ‘builders bake off’ to sell an array of delicious homemade sweet treats and goodies.  Raffle tickets will also be available to purchase throughout the week with amazing prizes up for grabs including a London Hotel Theatre Break for two and a £500 Covers Home Improvements voucher. 

Rupert Green, Chairman of Covers, said:

“We are delighted to be running our Help for Hospices fundraising event for a second consecutive year. Every contribution will count so we hope as many people as possible will join us to support these amazing charities that do such incredible work for the communities around us.”

Tickets for the raffle will cost £1 each or £10 for a book of 10 and will be available to purchase in all Covers’ depots from Monday 15th August.
