Suffolk: Country Homes investment gives helping hand to hospice organisation EACH
PARK home and log cabin manufacturer Country Homes has given a helping hand to East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) as a result of investment at its base at Brome, near Eye.
Country Homes, which has increased production by around 25% so far this and expects further growth in sales over the coming months, has overhauled its IT systems to keep pace with design and administrative demands.
The changes meant that a number of relatively new display screens became surplus to requirements, and the company contacted EACH so see if it could make use of them to raise funds.
EACH provides a range of care and support for children and young people with life-threatenting conditions, and their families, across Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, and needs to raise around �4.8million from the public annually.
Hannah Bloom, Suffolk partnerships manager at EACH, whose new Treehouse facility in Ipswich was recently visited by the charity’s royal patron, HRH the Duchess of Cambridge, said: “The screens were a welcome donation and will raise valuable funds for our hospices. We’re really pleased that Country Homes thought of us.”
Country Homes manufacturers a range of park homes and currently employs 40 people. Its recent investment has also included a new show home to be launched later this month.
