The teams at Lewes and Burgess Hill, along with the company's 13 other depots, are aiming to raise £30,000
on behalf of local hospice charities across the south of England, including St Peter & St James Hospice
From Monday 13th September until Friday 17th September, Covers will be donating £5 for each registered customer that makes a purchase during the event. The generous company has pledged to contribute at least £20,000 of its own money to the campaign.
On Monday 13th September, volunteers from St Peter & St James Hospice will join staff at Lewes and Burgess Hill for a Best of British themed "builders bake off".
Following the competition, which will be judged by the hospice's volunteers, all bakes will be sold or auctioned to Covers' staff and customers.
All proceeds raised from the bake sale will go towards the final fundraising amount.
St Peter & St James Hospice is a charity that provides expert and compassionate care to adults living with terminal illness in Haywards Heath, Lewes, Burgess Hill, Uckfield and the surrounding villages.
It costs £8,000 per day to run the services provided by the hospice.
However, all services are free of charge.
Rupert Green, Chairman of Covers, said:
"Covers' Help for Hospices campaign has been running since 2015 and, despite having to put activities on hold last year, we are extremely proud to have given more than £155,000 to our chosen charities over the past six years.
"Our local hospices are absolutely crucial to the communities they serve and rely heavily on donations to ensure they can continue to operate.
"We are looking forward to resuming our popular Help for Hospices charity week for 2021 and hope as many people as possible join us to support these extremely worthy causes."
