Burke Bros Moving Group and Compton Care are both celebrating their 40th year in 2022 and to commemorate this occasion, they are coming together with an exciting new fundraising campaign, “Project Home Move.”
Burke Bros have committed to match every donation made by their customers, when they book a house move, to Compton Care. The funds raised will help the charity to continue to provide care and support to adults living with incurable conditions and their families.
James Elliott, Director of Income Generation, Marketing and Partnerships/Deputy CEO, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Burke Bros on this new initiative and we are so grateful to Gary, Chris and the team for choosing to support us. For the past 40 years we have supported thousands of people in Wolverhampton and surrounding areas, providing practical, physical and emotional support. The past two years have been extremely challenging for the charity so now more than ever we are so thankful for Burke Bros support.”
Commenting on the project, Gary Burke added: “The Company have always valued giving back to the local area and supporting local charitable causes. Over a number of years Burke Bros have supported the charity through donations of furniture and books collected from house clearances to their network of shops to help raise funds for the organisation. I have also been Trustee and Non-Executive Director at the charity since 2014. It felt fitting to launch ‘Project Home Move’ as a special collaboration with Compton Care as both organisations reach significant milestones in 2022.”
Burke Bros Moving Group, founded in Wolverhampton in 1982 are an international moving company providing residential home moving, business and office moves, European and worldwide moving as well as containerised and self access storage.
