A leading West Midlands housing developer has donated a selection of its former showhome furniture to help a Wolverhampton charity provide caring support to terminally ill patients and their families.
Persimmon Homes West Midlands has donated its furniture from the Abbott’s Field development on the Ettingshall Road, to Compton Hospice to help boost funds.
The high quality showhome furniture – such as chairs, tables and sofas – will go on sale at Compton Hospice’s 18 shops across the West Midlands.
Simon Cater, Compton Hospice’s fund raising manager, said: “We’re very grateful to Persimmon Homes for donating this unwanted furniture to us. We rely on the generosity of local people and organisations in order to provide our specialist care to people with life-limiting illnesses, so to have Persimmon Homes’ support is fantastic.”
“The pieces of furniture that Persimmon has donated are effectively brand new as they’ve only ever been used to decorate a showhome environment, so it’s great to offer people to our stores the chance to bag themselves a great deal.”
Persimmon Homes West Midlands’ sales director Claire Jarvis, said: “We have chosen Compton Hospice as our charity of the year, and this donation is the first of what we hope will be many opportunities to help a cause that is right on our doorstep.
“We hope the items we donated raise lots of money to help local people.”
