We were subcontracted on this job to supply and fit the quartz worktops for the public cafe at St Michael’s Hospice in Herefordshire.
We supplied a polished quartz worktop called Bianco by Unistone that is a polished, pure white quartz countertop at 30mm thickness, with custom fabricated 100mm upstands, single chamfer edge profile and polished sink cutout for their large, commercial sink to go into.
We took these photos that show the finished result of our supply, fabrication and fit of these beautiful white quartz worktops in the St Michael’s Hospice Cafe:
St Michael’s Hospice has provided the highest-quality, free care to the local population since 1984.
Dr Richard Miller was inspired to build a hospice similar to the one he had visited at St Barnabas Hospice in Worthing during the heatwave of 1976.
Dr Miller said, ‘Back then, people were mostly looked after in hospital or at home. There was little understanding of symptom control. People often died in pain, screened off in the corner. I, along with other health care professionals, found this very difficult to deal with.’
Richard soon formed a coalition to try and raise £700,000 to construct a Hospice for Herefordshire.
One of those pioneers and co-founders was Dr Jeffrey Kramer: ‘I remember all of us thinking challenges like this are done on faith. It was a pure belief in the project being the right thing to do; that gave us the will to go on. Freda Pearce led the team of fundraisers; she had the cheek of the devil and was a very powerful person. She believed nothing was impossible and through sheer dedication and love for our fellow men and women, we built the Hospice. I quite honestly believe you can still feel the love when you walk in. There’s something very special about our building.’
Dr Kramer was made a life-patron in 2018 in recognition of his dedication, commitment and hard work in the founding of St Michael’s Hospice.
St. Michael’s Hospice has been delivering top-quality care, without charge, to the local population since 1984. The same people have worked tirelessly to raise the money needed to ensure that everyone receives the care they need.
