Generous staff at a Staffordshire carpet cleaning company are supporting St Giles Hospice by helping to fund its vital care services for local families.
Knight & Doyle Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning has signed up as a corporate supporter for St Giles and pledged to donate more than £2,500 to the hospice from its cleaning sales each year.
The business is also offering St Giles Hospice lottery players a 10 per cent discount of their services through the lottery’s Promise Card scheme.
Knight & Doyle, which offers residential and commercial carpet cleaning services across Lichfield, Cannock, Aldridge, Walsall and surrounding areas, has now rebranded its vans to promote the firm’s support of St Giles and will feature its logo on its website and in marketing materials to further raise awareness of the hospice.
Rich Doyle, a partner in Knight & Doyle, said: “We wanted to support a local charity and when we looked at St Giles Hospice and the work that it does we knew that we had found the right cause.
“When we heard about the support that patients get out in the community and the bereavement services on offer to patients’ families we realised that St Giles is not just a place where people go to die – it’s so much more than that. It’s about caring for patients and their families out in the community as well.
“Knight & Doyle are fortunate because as a business we have been so well supported by the community – and by helping a vital local charity like St Giles we can give a little back to support local people in return.”
Chloe Herbert, Head of Fundraising at St Giles, said the hospice was absolutely thrilled that Knight & Doyle had signed up to support its work caring for patients living with a terminal illness and their families at a time when demand for its services was significantly increasing.
“In a tough year which has been so hard for everyone, it is absolutely wonderful to receive this support from Knight & Doyle,” she said. “Businesses and charities alike have been challenged by the Covid-19 pandemic so their generosity is particularly welcome and inspiring right now, and our message to all of our supporters is that we’ve never needed you more than we need you today.”
