Hospice vans take to the road

2 brand new Hospice vans will take to the road this week thanks to Bank View Hire in Bootle. The vans have been generously part-funded by Bank View Hire who have leased the vans to the Hospice and have also given them a fully branded livery. The Hospice has 10 shops located across Merseyside, from Southport in the North, to Allerton in the South and over to Ormskirk, in the East. The shops will all be serviced by the new vans, which will also be available for furniture collections and household clearances across the area. The keys for the new vans were handed over to Hospice retail manager, Jo Rigby Clare, by Maureen Cross, owner of Bank View Hire, on Tuesday, 17 October 2017, at Bank View Hire on Derby Road in Bootle.  To arrange a furniture collection or house clearance, please call:- 0151 525 3072.  Jo said:- "Our new vans will make a huge difference to the number of furniture collections and house clearances we can facilitate. We are always in need of more goods to sell in our shops, especially furniture, and our new vans mean we will now be able to collect more furniture from people's homes, completely free of charge. We are very grateful to everyone at Bank View Hire for their unwavering support since 2014 and for making our new vans look fantastic. The vans will be located at our Warbreck furniture shop, near Aintree, from where we arrange all our collections and clearances. If you have any good quality furniture you would like to donate, please give us a call."
