Haines grateful to Androgroup

Androgroup is the latest of a number of local companies that have offered assistance to Derek Haines in his six-marathon challenge to build a new hospice facility. 

Haines has run four marathons so far this year and has raised more than $600,000 toward the $1 million target for a new Cayman HospiceCare building. Andro Director David Woodcock has offered to provide the planning for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing requirements and will work in conjunction with the architects and other service providers.  

Woodcock said, “Androgroup is pleased to support Derek’s Hospice challenge. Cayman HospiceCare is a great organization, and the much-needed facility will serve the whole community.” 

Haines said, “This is fantastic, and I am very grateful to Dave and the Androgroup for this generous offer.  

“Donations and pledges have been coming in at a steady rate, and with two thirds of the marathons now run, we are almost two-thirds of the way to our $1 million target.  

“The offers of help with services and equipment from companies will help considerably in ensuring that the hospice is a reality.” 

Other companies offering help are APEC (engineers), BCQS (project management), DART Cayman (land), Digicel Cayman (telecommunications), Home Gas, JDF (doors and windows), John Doak Architecture and Precision Solar. Haines’s next marathon is in Dublin on Oct. 27. The final one is in Cayman on Dec. 7.  

Donations can be made through the website at www.six4hospice.com or through the Digicel and LIME text initiative.
