Burke Bros Moving Group donates 5,000 books to Wolverhampton charity

Jul 15, 2017
Wolverhampton-based Burke Bros Moving Group has donated over 5,000 books to local charity, Compton Hospice.

The company collected the unwanted books over several months from house clearances, moves and items that have been donated to the Group. The books are to be put to good use, being sold across Compton Hospice charity shops in the local area to help raise funds.

Compton Hospice is a Wolverhampton-based charity that has been supporting patients facing life-limiting illnesses, and their families, for over 30 years. Its purpose is to make a difference to people’s lives when their illness is no longer curable.

Compton’s network of charity shops sells a vast range of second-hand and new items to generate income to fund quality and dignified care for its patients and their families. After recent break-ins at the Compton Hospice shops, Burke Bros has increased its efforts to try and help the charity raise much needed funding.

Burke Bros Moving Group’s Managing Director, Gary Burke, was made a non-executive director of Compton Hospice in 2015. He commented, “We were founded in the Black Country and we are proud to give back to charitable organisations in the area that do such meaningful work. Almost everyone in this area will know someone who has benefitted from Compton Hospice and it’s nice to be able to do our bit to make sure their work continues.”

Burke Bros Moving Group will be looking for other ways to raise funds for Compton Hospice and other charities in the Wolverhampton area throughout 2017.
