Pfizer, which has been lending its support to good causes with Community First for five years, returned to one of its favourite projects as six volunteers visited the hospice's Farlington depot.

As part of the company's employee volunteering scheme, helpers went through hundreds of bags of items donated by people including clothes, books and games.

The charity donations will then be delivered to their 22 charity shops around Hampshire.

Vanessa Gilding, health and safety manager at the Rowans said: '˜Thank you to the Pfizer team for their support and hard work.

'˜We rely on the support of all of our volunteers to help turn donated goods into saleable items which helps fund the work at Rowans Hospice.'

The hospice provides specialist care by supporting patients and those closest to them through the journey of their illness.
