The 15th October is Red Hot Day, a fund-raising day organised by Crohn’s and Colitis UK (formerly known as the National Association of Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s) and this year the team at Feature Radiators, Bingley have decided to get involved.
Crohn’s and Colitis UK aims to improve life for everyone affected by Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), the most common forms being Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, which affect about 250,000 people in the UK.
The charity helps its members by providing support for sufferers of these diseases and their families, through newsletters, booklets, helplines and a website.
Feature Radiators’ General Manager, Helena Gerwitz, a Crohn’s sufferer, has been inspired to help as she has personally found Crohn’s and Colitis UK essential for support and advice.
As a member, I am sent useful information that helped me prepare for my surgery and for the ongoing management of my condition. My consultant is fantastic but when you have a quick question that needs answering, then Crohn’s and Colitis UK is my first point of call.
In appreciation for the advice and guidance she has received from the charity, Helena was keen to give something back and help to maintain these services for years to come.
Helena approached her directors with a proposition.
I thought it’s Red Hot Day, so why not have a Red Hot radiator! I sourced a fantastic contemporary radiator, in stock in both red and chrome, at a competitive price that would really appeal to our customers but also tied in with the “Red Hot” theme. And our directors kindly agreed to donate a percentage of the sale price! I couldn’t believe it!
Feature Radiators have agreed that for a month, from 15th October till 15th November 2010, 20% of the price of their brand new Red Hot radiator will go to Crohn’s and Colitis UK! Helena is confident that this could be a real fund-raiser, as well as being a fantastic addition to people’s homes.
Feature Radiators based in Bingley, West Yorkshire is the UK’s leading retailer of contemporary, designer, traditional cast iron and electric radiators and heated towel rails, providing quality and design as well as value for money.
