Staff from Taylor Wimpey North Thames have picked up their paintbrushes and given the Isabel Hospice shop in Bishop’s Stortford a fresh lick of paint.
With a special donation from Gazeley Painting Ltd that enabled the project to go ahead, 12 staff members from the home builder dedicated two days to painting the store.
The makeover aims to rejuvenate the space and encourage people to visit and pick up a bargain, while helping to raise the vital income the Hospice needs to raise each year to keep on caring for those with life-limiting conditions, and their loved ones.
All of the Hospice’s services are free of charge, which means the charity relies heavily on the income from its shops, including the Bishop’s Stortford branch.
Sean Ridley, North Thames Commercial Director for Taylor Wimpey, said: “Everyone at Isabel Hospice provides such incredible care to the community and at Taylor Wimpey, we wanted to give back a token of our thanks. We hope that anyone in the surrounding areas will visit and enjoy the new refresh – and enjoy shopping for a good cause at the same time!”
Linda Cudmore, Community Fundraiser for Isabel Hospice, added: “We had such fun throughout the project and look forward to seeing our customers’ reactions to the refresh. It was wonderful to see the Taylor Wimpey team get involved with the Bishop’s Stortford shop and we’re really thrilled with the results.”
