Housebuilder donates furniture to children’s hospice


Leeds-based housebuilder Lovell Homes has donated its former showhome furniture from surrounding developments to Martin House, a charity that cares for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions across Yorkshire.

Sofas, beds, bedside tables and other unused furniture was generously donated to the charity, which is now being sold from the Martin House Furniture Warehouse and Showroom in Wetherby.

Lovell Homes’ Eastern region, which is based at Turnberry Park in Leeds, selected Martin House as its charity of the year for the 2019 period, donating ex-display furniture from its new homes developments.

The charity cares for children and young people, and their families, across West, North and East Yorkshire. Their services include respite stays at the Boston Spa hospice, hospital and home care, emergency stays, end of life care and bereavement support to families.

The furniture will help the non-profit organisation to care for children and their families, who pay nothing for the services Martin House provides.

William Mayger, assistant head of retail at Martin House said: “We would like to thank Lovell Homes for such an incredible donation of furniture.

“The items have been extremely popular with our customers and just about everything sold within days of going on display in our showroom.

“We couldn’t continue to provide the care we give to children and young people without the support of organisations like Lovell Homes.”

With current developments in Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Rutland as well as in Yorkshire, Lovell Homes has donated the furniture from its previous developments.

Toni Boden, regional sales manager at Lovell Homes said: “We are so pleased Martin House were able to make use of the showhome furniture.

“It is great to be able to support the local charity and help to aid their services and hard work to ensure the young children and their 

families are given the support they need.”
