A new initiative by Covers Timber & Builders Merchants has helped to brighten up the Aldingbourne Country Centre.

The Covers Help for the Community campaign brings together staff from the company who volunteer their time to help local organisations and groups with maintenance tasks.

A team of 12 staff from the company, which has 15 branches along the South Coast of England, spent the day helping Aldingbourne Country Centre with various jobs, including painting, weeding, strimming, erecting fencing and planting hedges.

The company also donated materials to help complete the work.

Henry Green, Covers MD, said: “We pride ourselves on the support we provide to local community projects through donations and fundraising. Our Covers Help for the Community campaign enables us to go one step further by providing the manpower needed to complete general maintenance tasks.

“We are long-term supporters of Aldingbourne Country Centre so we were absolutely delighted to assist them with their latest project. I would like to thank all the volunteers from Covers, who have done a fantastic job ensuring the work was completed.”
