A CROSBY estate agents have come up with a novel way to support a local charity.
Abode, of Liverpool Road in Crosby Village, are redesigning their For Sale boards to feature the logo of Thornton- based charity Jospice.
The charity, which provides care and support to terminally ill people and their families across Sefton, will also benefit from a £50 donation every time the agency sells a house.
Abode, who recently acquired fellow Crosby estate agents Edwards Brazier, are hoping their success can help raise valuable funds to support Jospice.
Stephanie Walker, Sales Manager at the Adobe Group, said: “We feel our vendors will support the agent that supports the community.
“As a company, we are delighted to be working with Jospice, and supporting the work they do in caring for local people.
“On a personal level, I have had a long association with Jospice, both from when I was a St Mary’s pupil and also when a terminally ill family member was looked after there.
“It's great to now be able to do something so positive to support them.”
Jospice, which last year celebrated its Golden Jubilee, has cared for thousands of people in Sefton since opening its hospice on Ince Road in 1974.
The hospice can care for 25 people at one time, providing high-quality end of life care in an environment away from that of a hospital.
The charity has continued its work overseas and has hospices in Honduras, Guatemala, Peru and Ecuador, in South America.
Pat Murphy, director of Fundraising and communications at Jospice, said: "We are delighted that Abode has chosen Jospice to support with this fundraising idea.
“I am sure it will be very successful and it is an ongoing way of supporting our work throughout the year”
