Nu-Heat funds specialist care for hospice children

£3,000 raised for children with life-limiting conditions

We are delighted to announce that our fundraising activities for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) have raised over £3,000 to fund specialist care for children with life-limiting conditions.

We raised the funds through our annual charity BBQ and raffle, as well as putting our MD, David Roberts, behind bars for CHSW’s Jail & Bail event. The money raised is enough to fund a specialist children’s nurse for one month at Little Bridge House, CHSW’s hospice near Barnstaple.

Mhairi Bass-Carruthers, CHSW Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser, explains:

“Children’s nurses are an integral part of a team that supports families through vital respite breaks, emergency care, and end of life care.

“Nu-Heat’s generous donation will help to ensure that the children and families who visit our Barnstaple children’s hospice are receiving the best possible care. With the support of their children’s nurse, families are able to get through the most difficult of times and can enjoy quality time together making happy memories to treasure, long into the future.”

Supporting CHSW

David Roberts adds:

“We are glad to contribute towards the vital work of Children’s Hospice South West, and make things a little easier for families who are going through the darkest of times. CHSW relies almost entirely upon voluntary donations to offer families across the South West free care and support, and we chose them as our charity of the year in order to do our bit to support them.”

Thank you

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported our fundraising efforts for CHSW. Whether you donated a prize, bought a raffle ticket or helped David raise the bail to get out of jail, your support will make a huge difference to families in the care of CHSW.

Nu-Heat MD behind bars for children’s charity

Locked up for a good cause

Our Managing Director, David Roberts, is preparing to be put behind bars next month in support of the Nu-Heat’s nominated charity of the year, Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Found guilty of misplaced sporting loyalties, David will be locked up at Exeter Castle on Friday 21st September as part of the charity’s Jail & Bail fundraiser.

Complete lack of remorse

Showing no remorse for his heinous crime of supporting Bristol Bears rugby club whilst living and working in Exeter Chiefs territory, David’s only hope of release is to raise bail of £999 from his cell. All the money raised will be donated to CHSW.

Time off for good behaviour

David Roberts explains:

“Whilst I have little chance of being found innocent, I am hoping to be let out early for good behaviour on account of my fundraising efforts! We chose Children’s Hospice South West as Nu-Heat’s charity of the year in order to do our bit for this important cause. The work that CHSW do to provide care for children across the region who have life-limiting conditions, as well as support for their families, is awe-inspiring – and definitely worth getting locked up for.

“I’m determined to raise as much as possible for CHSW, so am putting out an early plea for donations towards my bail target, which will be added to the money we have already raised at Nu-Heat through our annual charity raffle and fundraising events. To make a donation, please visit my fundraising page.”

The race is on

Nu-Heat silver celebrations raise lifesaving funds

We are thrilled to announce that our silver anniversary celebrations have raised £2,209.60 for Devon Air Ambulance Trust – enough to buy six lifesaving medical kits for the charity.

A donation for Devon

Nu-Heat nominated Devon Air Ambulance Trust – which also celebrates its 25th birthday this year – as our charity of the year for 2017, and used our silver anniversary garden party and raffle to raise money for the charity. We presented our donation to the pilot and paramedic crew of one of Devon Air Ambulance Trust’s helicopters at the charity’s Exeter airbase earlier this month.

Nu-Heat Managing Director, David Roberts, explains:

“We are delighted that our anniversary celebrations will aid the lifesaving work of Devon Air Ambulance Trust. Whilst we operate nationwide, Nu-Heat is a Devon employer and it was important for us to mark our special year by supporting a local cause that is close to the hearts of our people and their families.

“Devon Air Ambulance provides urgent medical assistance to the county’s residents and visitors in their hour of greatest need, and we will continue to raise funds for this vital service throughout the rest of this important milestone year for both organisations.”

A lifesaving partnership

Fundraising Director Caroline Creer stated:

“We are incredibly grateful to Nu-Heat for choosing to support us in our 25th year of service as part of their 25th celebration. The support we receive from local businesses like Nu-Heat has enabled us to develop our service and proudly reach this milestone.

“Nu-Heat have raised a fantastic amount for the Charity for which we are incredibly thankful. We look forward to building on the relationship we have established with Nu-Heat and we hope to celebrate their support in another 25 years as both charity and business celebrate 50 years.”

Thank you

We would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who helped Nu-Heat to raise vital funds for Devon Air Ambulance Trust, whether through purchasing raffle tickets, gifting raffle prizes or making donations.

Fundraising garden party prepares for take-off

As the big day approaches, final preparations are being made for Nu-Heat’s anniversary garden party in aid of Devon Air Ambulance Trust this coming Saturday.

Why Devon Air Ambulance Trust?

We have chosen to mark the company’s 25th year by supporting Devon Air Ambulance Trust, a local charity close to our hearts that also celebrates its silver anniversary in 2017.

Devon Air Ambulance provides life-saving medical assistance for hundreds of residents and visitors to the region each year, often in locations that would be inaccessible by road. We hope that the legacy of our 25th year will be to ensure that the charity’s helicopters and paramedics can reach even more people in their hour of greatest need.

Fundraising total so far

Over £1,000 has already been raised through the sale of charity raffle tickets, with prizes generously donated by local businesses and Nu-Heat suppliers. This total is expected to continue to rise with plenty of fundraising opportunities available on the day.

Nu-Heat would like to extend its grateful thanks to the following businesses for donating raffle prizes and supporting our fundraising efforts for Devon Air Ambulance Trust:
