Adam, who runs Long Lane Carpets and Flooring in Newport, was straight on the case and fitted the staffroom with a brand new vinyl floor, completely free of charge. Hospice nurses were overwhelmed by his generosity and have since plied him with biscuits and chocolates to say thank you!
The well-worn carpet came to Adam’s attention after Tina Groves, who works at the Hospice, wrote to several Island-based flooring companies to ask if anyone might be willing to help give the nurses staffroom a bit of a face-lift.
Adam, who lives in Sandown with his wife and two daughters, said:
“When I received Tina’s email, I was more than willing to help out – the Hospice is such a good cause and I was only too happy to get involved. I know lots of people who fundraise and have connections with the Hospice – everyone knows someone who has used the services. It was great to be able to do something for the nurses there.”
