Last week, we announced that the Dursley, Stonehouse and Nailsworth branches of The Coventry Building Society have been nominated in Gloucestershire's Local Business Charity Awards.

Building on this recent news, we are thrilled that the Coventry Building Society have made a donation of £40,500 to Longfield, enough to pay for more than 1,620 hours of care from our Hospice at Home team!

Our Chief Executive, Andrew Fletcher has said: “The ongoing support of the Coventry is vital to our Hospice at Home service which is provided free to people who need it…”

“Thanks to the Coventry’s latest donation, we can provide nurses in people’s homes for more than 1,620 hours, providing desperately needed respite and support for families who are helping loved ones die in their place of choice – their own home.”

Over the past three years, the Coventry have donated more than £100,000 to Longfield.

Matthew Cook, one of our health care assistants working as part of our Hospice at Home team sees first-hand how the Coventry’s donation impacts on people’s lives.

“The Coventry’s support is amazing. It means we will be able to support more people. I feel privileged to be allowed into people’s homes at such critical times in their lives.”

Rebecca Brookes, from Coventry Building Society, said: “At the Coventry, we strive to support our local communities so we’re very pleased that we’re able to donate a record amount to support the fantastic work of Longfield.”
