Did you know Dove House Hospice runs a wood shop and wood recycling business?

Humber Wood Recycling Project is a social enterprise which reduces wood waste and creates meaningful employment and volunteering opportunities. The enterprise, based on Cornwall Street and facing onto Cleveland Street in Hull, works primarily with the construction industry and collects waste wood at a more competitive rate than hiring a skip. The salvaged wood is then reworked and resold back to the public and industry as either raw material or made into items such as planters and furniture.

In September 2018 the hospice took over the enterprise meaning any profit that is not reinvested in the business, is used to fund our specialist, free of charge, care. This move allowed Dove House to reduce wood waste whilst also generating vital new funds to help more patients and their families at the end of life.
The enterprise has a range of products in stock such as garden furniture, dog beds, coat hooks and log stores and produces commission pieces such as bespoke cable reel tables, signposts, restaurant panelling and planters, made to the customer’s specification, at competitive prices.

The team are always on hand with advice for those looking to make their own creations out of wood and pallets too!
