Baker Estates, one of the South West’s leading property developers, has generously supported the cost of, not one, or two but three retail vans for local charity, Rowcroft Hospice.
The donation of the retail vans are a much needed addition to Rowcroft’s retail enterprise and will enable it to continue to thrive and fund the vital care for people living with life limiting illness and their families in South Devon.
Funding Vital Care
Rowcroft Hospice’s retail operation plays a vital role in funding its patient services.
Without a series of reliable, roadworthy vehicles, it just would not be possible for the hospice to deliver its retail network and operate at its full potential.
The delivery of the new vans will allow the charity to continue to collect donations from house clearances, white goods and large pieces of furniture.
The goods that are collected provide a significant financial contribution to Rowcroft’s outstanding care.
Baker Estates made the exceptional generous donation after being approached by Rowcroft Corporate Fundraising Ambassador, Jonathan Edgoose.
Ian baker, Managing Director of Baker Estates said:
“Rowcroft is a fantastic and well-known local charity that has been carrying out amazing work in the community for many years. We feel it is hugely important to support the communities in which we work and Baker Estates has a desire to contribute to good causes throughout its area of operation.“
“Many of our staff have experience of or know people who have benefited from the wonderful work that Rowcroft provides. Baker Estates staff have previously been involved in The Sleep Walk and will be taking part as a team for this year’s event.”
It’s a pleasure to be associated with an organisation such as Rowcroft and the vans look terrific! But most importantly, the vans will do great work in raising funds for Rowcroft for years to come.”
Baker Estates is currently building in seven locations throughout the South West, including Malborough near Salcombe, Totnes, Honiton, Callington and Seaton. The new homes developer is one of the leading housebuilders within the South West and has a Home Builders Federation 5-star customer satisfaction rating.
Alongside the eye-catching design used on its vans, it can also be found on Rowcroft’s very own eco friendly carrier bags which are available in Rowcroft shops.
Not only do the vans support the vital network of shops, and deliver a profitable service they also act as a tool with which to drive brand awareness.
Chief Executive at Rowcroft Hospice, Mark Hawkins said:
I am delighted that Baker Estates have supported us in buying three new vehicles so that we can continue to collect furniture from homes across South Devon, and ensure our 16 shops are always fully stocked with goods to sell. We are passionate about delivering outstanding care to our community and Baker Estates are passionate about delivering outstanding homes in the communities they know and love, and so the match felt perfect. We could not do what we do without the support of local businesses like Baker Estates.
