Cousins Furniture Stores take great pride in supporting local charities. See below for some of the organisations that we have teamed up with.
Cancer research UK
Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. They've saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years.
Cancer Research UK holds several events to raise cancer awareness and engage people in the fight against cancer. One of these noble charity ventures is Race for Life - a series of women only events raising money for research into all types of cancer.
This year Cousins Furniture Stores entered the race to support Cancer Research UK in their quest to beat cancer. Join 'the pink army' in one click by sponsoring us.

Birmingham children's hospital
Birmingham Children's Hospital provides the widest range of children’s health services for young patients from the West Midlands and beyond.
Treating over 257,000 children every year, they are a nationally designated specialist centre for epilepsy surgery and a trauma centre for the West Midlands, a national liver and small bowel transplant centre, as well as a centre of excellence for complex heart conditions, the treatment of burns, cancer and liver and kidney disease. They also have one of the largest Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services in the country.
Cousins are currently actively helping towards raising the final £500,000 for their £4 million Children’s Cancer Centre Appeal to improve facilities for the patients and their families.
The Big Bandage
To support another endeavour taken up by the Birmingham Children's Hospital we have joined the Big Bandage event, whose principal objective is to raise money towards £1 million Magnolia House Appeal. >
Magnolia House will be a special place that aims to protect, support and heal the families of terminally ill children during their most difficult times. On 10th July, we will wear bandages with great pride to help the hospital to give love, protection and support to these families facing the toughest of challenges.

At Cousins, we are immensely proud to help towards raising the £4.6 million needed each year to support the Francis House Children’s Hospice.

We are proud supporters of Wolverhampton Marathon Events. In 1998, the late Roy Carver together with Ivan Savage, then Carvers Group Sales Director, came up with a strategy to put the Wolverhampton Marathon back on the City events programme.
The fabulous Wolverhampton Marathon race, since 1998, has raised in excess of £300,000 to help the listed local charities on their website.
