A Chester charity is asking people to be eagle-eyed as it hits the road with the help of a transport company.

The Hospice of the Good Shepherd now features on a 40-feet long Edge Transport lorry.

The lorry will be carrying Westbridge Furniture Designs sofas across the UK for the next 10 years.

And for a limited time only the hospice is asking people to post a photo on Twitter @GS_Hospice using the hashtag #hospicelorry if they spot the vehicle when they are out and about.

For the first five photos received, Edge Transport will give the entrant a limited edition toy replica.

Edge Transport, based on Deeside Industrial Park, has chosen to support the hospice following a family connection to the charity.

The family run distribution and storage company is owned by the Edge family - Jonathan, Jenny, Richard, Nikki, Ann and Kate.

Jonathan said: “As a family we have experienced the exceptional care that the hospice provides first hand, as have some of our staff.

“The hospice has always been there for the family in our time of need, providing palliative care for Peter Edge, the founder of the business and Mark Brown, Kate’s husband.

“We want to help ensure the hospice can support everyone else who needs them.”

Earlier this month a team of 15 from the firm took part in the Rough Runner event in Manchester and have to date raised more than £3,000.

Interim director of fundraising and lottery at the hospice, Abi Smith, said: “We are so grateful to Edge Transport for everything they have done for the charity so far. The lorry is going to be a great way to raise the profile of the hospice right across the UK and we look forward to seeing it on our local roads.”
