Redditch Rotarians help Primrose Hospice

Imogen Buller 14th Jan, 2018

PRIMROSE Hospice has been boosted by a donation of £150 following the theft of lead from its roof last week.

On hearing the news members of the local Rotary Club dug deep after seeing how devastated the staff and volunteers were.

The incident at the hospice, in St Godwald’s Road, Bromsgrove, will cost £150 to repair but, because of surrounding damage is likely to run into hundreds of pounds.

When the exact sum is known the Rotarians said they would provide further funds.

Ron Pearce, secretary of the Rotary Club of Bromsgrove said: “Like all decent members of the public, members are disgusted that criminals should target the hospice.”

Emma Williams, from Primrose Hospice said: “We were left devastated after learning that our building was damaged by thieves who stole lead from the roof over the Christmas period.

“Members of the local community have once again come to our aid and this donation really does mean the world to us.”

Local campaigner Fred Stanley also donated £150 to help with the repairs.

Anyone with any information about the lead thefts should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
