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

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:

We’re pleased to support CRASH

Nu-Heat is pleased to be supporting CRASH as our chosen charity for 2016. Last year, we donated over £1400 for the Prince’s Trust through our annual Summer Party raffle – a target we’re hoping to smash this September!

Why CRASH?

CRASH is a unique charity in the property and construction sector. It was founded in order to help homeless people and hospices by improving the buildings they need and use. This is done through offering skilled expertise, sourcing building materials, providing technical knowledge and cash grants.

Over the last 10 years the charity has donated a staggering £4 million to projects as gifts in kind through materials and professional services such as Engineers, Designers and Architects.

As a company involved in the same sector, and having been involved in projects such as DIY SOS in the past, CRASH is a perfect fit for Nu-Heat.

An example of CRASH’s work

CRASH worked with St Michael’s Hospice to help reconstruct the building after it was extensively damaged in an arson attack last July. The 28 bed hospice had been providing care for adults with life-limiting illness since 1987 and the fire not only had a devastating effect on the building, but also on the staff and patients working and staying there at the time.

CRASH awarded St Michael’s Hospice with a cash grant of £30,000 towards getting the building back up and running.

In the last year CRASH has also helped 48 homeless projects to improve and develop the buildings they need to offer their services, including emergency night shelters, hostels, day centres and ‘move-on’ accommodation.
