Kind-hearted staff from Bromsgrove firm gave up their time to paint the Primrose

KIND-HEARTED staff from a Bromsgrove business rolled-up their sleeves to help decorate the Primrose Hospice.

The eight-strong team from Benniman LTD, based in Harris Business Park, Hanbury Road, painted the day hospice and dining room.

The walls were painted a contemporary grey to complement recently donated furniture and Benniman staff have also arranged for a new wooden flooring to be installed in the rooms in the forthcoming weeks.

The firm’s MD Steven Smith 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, and are local to our Stoke Prior offices,

“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.

The workers were repaid with home baked cakes from Jo Wright, the Primrose Hospice’s volunteers’ manager to keep up their energy levels.

Their efforts helped to save valuable funds which can go towards the running costs of the charity’s services that are free to people with life-limiting conditions and their families.

The Primrose Hospice, based in St Godwalds Road, costs £1.7million-a-year so it can offer its services for free to people living in north east Worcestershire.
