A Bury St Edmunds van centre has donated two vehicles to the town’s hospice in support of its household clearance scheme.

Volkswagen Van Centre in Northern Way has supplied the Crafter Luton vans to St Nicholas Hospice Care and agreed to sponsor the vehicles by paying for the signwriting and branding on each vehicle.

The freshly-sign written vans were recently handed over by Jason Harper, the local business development manager at the company, which is part of the Marriott Motor Group.

St Nicholas Hospice Care’s household clearance scheme is a service for people who need to clear a house because they have lost a loved one or because someone is leaving their home.

Finance director at hospice, Rachel Spencer said: “We carefully wrap all their items and take them away but the service is providing a wonderful stream of income for the hospice and gives us even more great items to sell through our online sites and 11 shops.
