Local housebuilder donates cash to hospice
A Nuneaton hospice has benefited from a £250 donation from housebuilder Davidsons Homes.
The donation has been made as part of an ongoing partnership between the Ibstock-based developer and Mary Ann Evans Hospice.
The hospice provides care and support to patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, in Nuneaton and the surrounding area.
Sarahjane Giles, Sales Area Manager for Davidsons Homes, said: “When we found out about the work that Mary Ann Evans Hospice does for local people in Nuneaton, we knew we wanted to help in any way we could.
“Anyone who has visited the hospice will be able to tell you that the warmth and care shown there to patients and their families is clearly evident. The great work that the hospice does is something that we very much wanted to support.
“We hope that our donation can go some way towards helping the hospice continue providing their life-changing services to local people.”
Cloey Pickles, Community Liaison and Publicity Officer for Mary Ann Evans Hospice, said: “Many people are unaware that we receive only 20 per cent of our running costs from Government funding, and the remainder is raised from the generous support of our local community.
“That’s why we are so grateful for donations such as this one from Davidsons Homes, which draws attention to the fundraising work we carry out on a daily basis.”
All care given by the Mary Ann Evans Hospice is provided free of charge although it is not free to provide. The shortfall in funding amounts to £2,500 every day.
