Himanshu Shah, who owns Nisa Local Riley Square in Coventry, has donated £2,000 to Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice through Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) fund.

Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice in Coventry provides specialist palliative care for babies and young children with life-limiting illnesses. The hospice relies almost entirely on public donations to offer its services free of charge.

Himanshu said: “I am delighted to support our local community in such a positive way. Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice does incredible work, and we are proud to be able to help them continue their important mission.”

Lara Taylerson-Whyte, corporate fundraiser for Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice, thanked the store for its generous donation: “This donation will allow us to continue providing vital care to children and their families in our community.”

The hospice works to ensure that very unwell children can enjoy the best possible quality of life. Their nurse-led team delivers individualised, all-encompassing care to children and their families, helping them live life to its fullest.

Kate Carroll head of charity at Nisa commented: “This is such a worthwhile cause and I’m delighted Himanshu has chosen Zoe’s Place to receive such a sizeable donation. MADL gives independent retailers the opportunity to build a funding pot through sales of Co-op own brand products which is then used on super causes such as Zoe’s Place.”
