Developer and drinks company deliver festive cheer to Vale of Belvoir day hospice
A developer and drinks company are spreading festive cheer at a Vale of Belvoir hospice this year.
Miller Homes East Midlands and Belvoir Fruit Farms are working together to provide 120 individual Belvoir Fruit Farms bottles of organic lemonade to Dove Cottage Day Hospice in Stathern for its Light up a Life carol service. The event invites everyone to celebrate their loved ones and remember those who are no longer with us through carols and personalised dove decorations.
Alastair Parsons, area sales director for Miller Homes Midlands, said: “At Miller Homes, we’re always proud to support worthy charities and local businesses in our community, so we are delighted to help the Light up a Life carol service as well as work in partnership with Belvoir Fruit Farms. This service is such a beautiful way to bring friends and families together to celebrate the year, and we know the residents of our new development in Bottesford will enjoy starting their holiday celebrations here.”
The Light up a Life carol service will be taking place at Dove Cottage Day Hospice in Stathern on Sunday (December 8) between 2pm and 4pm.
Miller Homes and Belvoir Fruit Farms will also be delivering drinks for the hospice guests and staff in the week leading up to Christmas, including a spiced ginger punch and a mulled winter punch.
Chris Gatfield, founder and chief executive for Dove Cottage Day Hospice, added:“The support of local businesses is a vital cog in our fund-raising wheel, and we couldn’t do what we do without the generous support of companies such as Miller Homes and Belvoir Fruit Farms. Donations help us maximise the money we make for the hospice, so it can all go back into providing much-needed nursing and wellbeing care for the guests who come to us for respite.”
Nikki Bull, senior brand manager of Belvoir Fruit Farms, said: “The holidays are a great time, but we understand how hard it can be for those who have lost loved ones during the year. We are delighted to offer our drinks and show our support for the service.”
