On Monday 11th September volunteers from the hospices will join Covers staff at their depots for a ‘builders bake off’ to sell an array of delicious homemade cakes and biscuits. Whilst on Wednesday 13th September, volunteers from St Wilfrid’s Hospice will be at Covers’ Chichester depot will also be selling bacon rolls in exchange for donations. Raffle tickets will be available to purchase throughout the week with great prizes up for grabs including a £500 Covers Home Improvements voucher.

Rupert Green, Chairman of Covers, said: “We’re delighted to once again be raising money for such fantastic causes. Here at Covers we pride ourselves on offering support to the local community. I look forward to welcoming as many people as possible to our ‘builders bake off’ and to announcing the total amount raised for our third Help for Hospices week in October.”

Tickets for the raffle will cost £1 each or £10 for a book of 10 and are available to purchase in all Covers’ depots.
