Seating supplier’s eggs-traordinary fundraising effort supports hospice this Easter
West Midlands-based specialist seating manufacturer Repose Furniture has delivered just under 400 Easter eggs to the Mary Stevens Hospice after a fundraising initiative throughout April to collect as many eggs as possible.
Supporting the Stourbridge hospice which provides vital care and support, free-of-charge to families, patients and loved ones as part of its 20th Anniversary celebrations, Repose’s Julie Underhill and Sophie Small worked with local businesses and organisations throughout April to gather Easter Eggs for the Hospice’s 2019 Easter Egg Hunt and coffee morning on the 20th April.
“The Mary Stevens Hospice is such an amazing charity which we are incredibly proud to support. When we spoke to people to explain what we were doing each and every one of them said they would help us with a donation,” commented Julie.
The company contacted suppliers, retailers, families and friends and within days, boxes of Easter eggs started turning up at the company’s headquarters in Cradley Heath says Repose. The Wednesday before Easter, Julie and Sophie were sitting on a mound of nearly 400 eggs which were delivered to the Hospice.
“Julie and Sophie have done an amazing job in collecting so many Easter eggs and on behalf of the team here at Repose I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made a donation. The support which is provided by the staff at Mary Stevens Hospice is invaluable to the local community and we will be helping them with further fundraising events throughout 2019” commented Managing Director Lisa Wardley.
In March, THIIS interviewed Lisa Wardley to find out more about the company’s 20 years in the industry, alongside its new sensory seating distribution endeavour.
