AN INDEPENDENT supplier of building materials with a Tadley base has handed over the fruits of its fundraising.

Elliotts, which has a base in Brick Kiln Industrial Estate, has raised more than £6,800 for Countess Mountbatten Hospice, in Southampton.

The money was raised by Elliotts employees, customers and suppliers via numerous fundraising activities including a golf day and the Challenge Adventure Charities ‘Annecy Challenge’ – a 550-mile bike ride through France.

Employees at Elliotts also supported the charity by volunteering at its summer fete, supplying materials for the planters in the hospice garden and donating clothes and goods for the hospice to sell in their charity boutiques.

The cheque was presented to the charity by Tom Elliott, managing director of Elliotts, who said: “We are thrilled to have supported the Countess Mountbatten Hospice charity. Many Elliotts employees have a connection to the hospice and I hope the money we have raised will help the hospice continue the vital work that they do.”
