WINDOW furnishing firm Thomas Sanderson cleaned up two conservatories for a good cause
WINDOW furnishing firm Thomas Sanderson cleaned up two conservatories for a good cause. The family-run company, that started in Waterlooville, completed a free valet of the conservatories for Wessex Heartbeat - a charity that supports people with heart conditions treated in the Wessex Cardiac Centre at Southampton General Hospital. The charity runs Heartbeat House, which offers free accommodation to families and friends of patients that are admitted to the centre. Wessex Heartbeat chief executive John Munro said: ‘It costs us £80,000 per year to run Heartbeat House, so any support we receive to reduce that cost means we have more funds to support patients and their families.
Thomas Sanderson has been supporting Wessex Heartbeat for two years with sponsorship and fundraising events. Managing director Nigel Campkin said: ‘The staff at Thomas Sanderson are very proactive in supporting charities though fundraising activities. ‘We appreciate the amazing work Wessex Heratbeat does in the local community to improve cardiac care. We are proud to support them directly by donating the services of one of our conservatory valeting teams.
