At Armorgard we support different charities throughout year, and we like to give back to our local community by giving up our time for voluntary activities. We nominate a charity each quarter and for this term, we have been raising money for the Rowans Hospice, Purbrook.
Just opened in November 2016, the Rowans Living Well Centre is a brand new facility built to provide a relaxed and safe environment for people affected by life-limiting illnesses. It’s an amazing new environment to support the community – Ruth White, the chief executive states that it will “provide a haven to those needing advice, support and help”.
The Rowans hospice staff kindly gave a team of 6 Armorgard volunteers the opportunity to work at the Hospice to help improve the conditions further. The Armorgard team worked hard to clear and prepare the outside areas for new wood chipping around the Rowans Living well centre. This went towards enabling the staff at the hospice to receive much needed support to provide a peaceful and tranquil external area for their patients.
A rewarding and enjoyable experience was had by all.
