Local business donates benches to Poole Hospital

Thanks to the generosity of a local business, Poole Hospital staff and visitors can enjoy moments of rest and respite on two new benches.


Drewlec, a subsidiary of the Drewitt Group, has provided an upgrade to some of the outdoor seating on the site. The company has donated two new benches, which provide a place of refuge for NHS staff looking for a place to recharge, and for visitors and patients to take a break from the hospital environment.

The seemingly small additions can make a world of a difference when situated in hospital grounds.

Managing director of the group, Richard Drewitt, said, “We’re proud to work with Poole Hospital and regularly see first-hand the hard work and dedication of the doctors and nurses. Our teams are frequently onsite maintaining fire alarm systems in various wards around the hospital and are therefore exposed to the reality of the day-to-day stresses that are put onto staff and patients. When we received the request to help improve the outdoor seating between the main hospital and the Eddie Hawker Wing, we were quick to offer our support.”

The benches were supplied by Drewitt Group following a request for materials and products to improve outdoor spaces at the hospital. As the group has a solid relationship with the hospital, it was keen to help by replacing the existing, run down benches with the two new ones.

“We hope that patients and staff alike will find the benches as a comfortable place of calm and reset during their hospital stay or on a break away from the busy hospital wards. I hope that our small gesture of support will positively impact those in our local hospital. We chose the benches specifically for their durability in harsh British weathers and hope that they will be enjoyed for years to come,” Richard said.

Drewlec has held the contract for the upgrade of and service to Poole Hospital’s fire alarm systems since 2014.
