Award-winning housebuilder Baker Estates has further strengthened its commitment to support Rowcroft Hospice in 2020 by naming the organisation its main charity of the year.
Having raised £12,675 last year, Baker Estates staff have already pledged more fundraising initiatives and are running the Torbay Half Marathon in aid of the charity this summer.
Baker Estates will also continue to sponsor the cost of two vans for the hospice which is a vital part of Rowcroft’s retail operation to collect furniture donations from house clearances and donated white goods.
Every year the hospice looks after more than 2000 patients providing comfort, support and specialist services in patients’ homes across the community and at Rowcroft’s Inpatient Unit in Torquay.
Ian Baker, Managing Director of Baker Estates, said: “We were absolutely delighted to continue to support Rowcroft and I know the Bakers Estates’ team are committed to raise even more this year. Many of our staff have experience of or know people who have benefited from the wonderful work that Rowcroft provides.”
Rowcroft Hospice’s Chief Executive, Mark Hawkins, said: “The continued sponsorship of the two Citroen vans allows our retail enterprise to thrive and fund vital care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon. I am delighted that Baker Estates will continue to support us so that we can continue to collect furniture, for Rowcroft’s three furniture outlets.
“We are passionate about delivering outstanding care to our community and I know Baker Estates is equally committed to delivering outstanding homes in the south west. Support from local business, like Baker Estates, is absolutely vital for us.”
