The British Heart Foundation (BHF) in Cardiff has been boosted by a bumper donation of office furniture from Cardiff housing developer Lovell.
The donated items – office desks and chairs, filing cabinets and storage systems – are now on sale at the charity’s furniture and electrical store in Crwys Road, Cathays, Cardiff.
“We’ve just moved our Cardiff office and were left with quite a lot of office furniture which wasn’t needed in our new premises,” says Lovell regional director Kate Rees.
“We wanted to put the items to good use and are therefore delighted to have been able to donate them to help raise funds for the British Heart Foundation’s important work.” The charity leads the fight against coronary heart disease (the UK’s single biggest killer) and is the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research.
Sharon Jones, BHF area manager, comments: “We’re so grateful for Lovell’s generous donation. Every week around 2,000 families lose a loved one to heart disease, but with continued support from local people and businesses like Lovell, the BHF can fight harder to reduce this figure.”
As part of its continuing business expansion, housing developer and regeneration specialist Lovell has relocated its South Wales and the South West regional office to the Greenmeadow Springs business park on the outskirts of Cardiff. Recent business successes for Lovell include the company’s appointment by the Tirion Group to create The Mill, a landmark development which will transform a former paper mill site in Cardiff with 800 brand-new homes, creating a £100 million new urban village. The company is also working on the £30 million Loftus Garden Village development in Newport for Seren Group, a development of 250 new homes near the city centre.
