GENEROUS staff from a Stoke Prior business recently rolled-up their sleeves and got to work for a good cause.

A team of eight from Benniman LTD, based in Harris Business Park, Hanbury Road, painted the day hospice and dining room which are used by patients at Primrose Hospice.

The walls were decorated a contemporary grey colour which complements the recently donated furniture.

The staff at Benniman are also making arrangements for the installation of new wooden flooring within these rooms in the forthcoming weeks.

Steven Smith, MD, said it was a wonderful way to spend a sunny Monday.

“We couldn’t think of a better charity to be involved with, they provide dedicated care and support to local patients and their families free of charge.

“Our staff really enjoyed the day and we look forward to helping out at the hospice again in the near future.”

The team volunteered as part of the Benniman Social Value Scheme which focuses on contributing and supporting projects in the local community.

In between their endeavours, the Benniman workforce was spoilt with home baked cakes courtesy of Jo Wright, Primrose Hospice’s volunteers’ manager.

By giving their time for free, the staff helped to save valuable funds which can go towards the running costs of the charity’s services which are free for people with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Primrose Hospice, based in St Godwalds Road, must raise £1.7million annually to keep these services free for people living in north east Worcestershire.
