Shropshire franchisee’s profit pledge earns cash for charity

Shropshire franchisee’s profit pledge earns cash for charity

Ovenu’s Andrew Bowcott raises over £1,000 for Severn Hospice

A Shropshire franchisee has handed over a cheque to Severn Hospice for £1,145 - having exceeded his original fundraising target.

Andrew Bowcott, who runs Ovenu Telford South, a domestic oven cleaning and valeting specialist, pledged 10 per cent of his first three months’ takings to the independent charity after reopening his business in mid-May following the easing of lockdown restrictions.

The 40-year-old had only been trading a matter of months when he was forced to mothball his fledgling enterprise due to coronavirus.

However, following a considerable increase in bookings since his return to work, Andrew has raised £1,145 for the hospice - almost 15 per cent more than his initial £1,000 target.

He says: “I’m delighted to have raised such a fantastic amount and wish to thank my clients who have both supported this business and the hospice through a very challenging period.

“It’s not going to stop here. I’ve really enjoyed helping Severn Hospice and plan to do more fundraising, so watch this space.”

The hospice provides free specialist support and care to more than 2,000 families a year across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, and Mid Wales who are living with an incurable illness.

Andrew, who was widowed at a young age, adds: “Dealing with the loss of a loved one is one of the most painful experiences.

“This dreadful virus has highlighted how vital our health workers are and I was determined to do something positive to show my gratitude for all that they do.”

Hannah Gamston, area fundraiser for Severn Hospice, says: “We’re amazed at Andrew’s generosity and can’t thank him enough for his support.

“Andrew’s donation will make a real difference to our families; we simply couldn’t do what we do without supporters like him.”
