Recently About Roofing Supplies at Esher were approached by local NHS hospital, St Peter’s hospital in Chertsey, who were looking to purchase some roofing felt to re-cover the roof on their allotment shed that was leaking after the winter storms.

The allotment is being used by the hospital to help in the treatment of patients as it has been proven that exercise outdoors – whether it be walking, or in this instance gardening – can be beneficial to the health of us all, particularly patients recovering from illnesses.

Conscious that the Health Service are under severe budgetary pressures, Luke Hossack, the About Roofing Supplies Esher Branch Manager provided the roofing felt for the shed free of charge.

In response, St Peter’s hospital have written to the Esher branch thanking them, and said “….a massive thank you for the roofing felt that you kindly donated for our allotment shed. It means a great deal to our team that local businesses support what we are trying to achieve”.

Luke, who has worked for About Roofing Supplies for over 9 years commented “everyone is aware that the NHS is under severe funding pressure. All of us benefit from the care of the hard working health care professionals within the NHS at some stage in our lives, every one of whom is an unsung hero. This was our opportunity to give something back and to say thank you from About Roofing Supplies on behalf of us all”.

At About Roofing Supplies we value local charities and we were delighted to be able to help St Peter’s hospital with their project which supports their continued mission of patient treatment and care. We strive towards an ethical and customer focused approach which we employ in all our interactions. To find out more information please contact us at onlinesales@aboutroofing.com
