Nuneaton hospice benefits from donation of showhome furniture

A Nuneaton hospice has benefitted from a donation of showhome furniture from Davidsons.

A range of furniture has been donated to Mary Ann Evans Hospice shop, Furniture Revisited, with proceeds from the sales being used to support the hospice.

The items, donated to the shop on Weddington Road in Nuneaton, include wooden bedframes, a French style wardrobe and bedside table, two small sofas, an oak dining and coffee table, dining chairs and two Wenge tv/hi fi units, all of which are items previously used in Davidsons Homes’ showhomes around the region.

Mary Ann Evans Hospice offers several services to those affected by life-limiting illnesses in and around the Nuneaton area, including a day hospice, Hospice at Home care, lymphoedema care, bereavement services and chaplaincy and spiritual care.

Julie Cox, Director of Operations at Mary Ann Evans Hospice, said: “We appreciate the donation and the continued support from Davidsons Homes. The items that they donate are exceptionally popular.

“The latest donations virtually sold out within the first day of receiving them giving us our biggest midweek takings to date.”

Stephanie King, Sales Director for Davidsons Homes, said: “We are really pleased to be able to pass the showhome items on so that good use can be made of them and at the same time valuable funds can be raised to help support the Mary Ann Evans Hospice.

“The hospice does truly amazing work and it’s important to us to support the communities close to where we are building new homes.”

Davidsons Homes is currently building a range of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at its Manor Fields development on The Long Shoot in Nuneaton, and three, four and five-bedroom homes at its Church Fields development on Weddington Road in Nuneaton.
