Regional contract cleaning firm Monthind Clean has delivered a spruce-up for St Helena Hospice’s centre in Clacton.
The project, involving gardening, jet-washing and painting, was carried out as part of Monthind’s 40th anniversary celebrations.
Monthind, which is based near Colchester, operates throughout East Anglia and also has an office in Norwich.
As part of its anniversary celebrations, Monthind has been working to raise money for the cancer support charity, Macmillan, through various fundraising events.
The company also decided to help a local hospice, and St Helena Hospice was the grateful recipient of its offer to provide the manpower, equipment and materials to improve outside areas at its Tendring Centre.
In conjunction with Kevin McGill, estates and facilities manager at St Helena Hospice, and Lloyd Pentney, business manager at Monthind, a team of Monthind employees – Mark Douglas, Terry Duffett and Anthony Lewis – was drafted in to help smarten up the outside areas of the centre.
Lloyd Pentney, who co-ordinated the venture, said: “The areas given an overhaul were the exterior of the building and the garden courtyard.

“Patients and visitors can spend time there, and some of the rooms overlook the garden, so it is important that the area is accessible and pleasant to look at.”
He added: “We’ve made it more manageable for the volunteers who look after the garden. We were all delighted with the results.”
