Supporting charities

Thank you for your feedback – Market Research

We recently commissioned a comprehensive market research project to help us better understand what our customers and non-customers want and need from an underfloor heating company, and specifically from Nu-Heat.

Over 250 people were interviewed, including homeowners, installers, architects and builders, with each interviewee able to nominate a charity for Nu-Heat to donate to. In total, £775.00 has been raised for Cancer Research and £325.00 for Save the Children.

Thank you to everyone who completed the interviews, your feedback is critical to Nu-Heat. The findings will help us to deliver excellence in products and our customer service experience.

 

Prince’s Trust – Get into Construction

Get into Construction

The Prince’s Trust supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law.

Working with construction industry leaders the Prince’s Trust has addressed the skills shortage currently faced by the industry and has developed ‘Get into Construction‘ – a two to four week work experience programme for young people aged 18-25.

With a strong link to our industry, Nu-Heat has chosen to support the Prince’s Trust programme and we hope that our final donation total of £1448.83, raised from our annual Summer Party raffle, will go some way to adding value to the lives of the young and vulnerable adults enrolled onto the Get into Construction programme.

We would like to say a big thank you to our fantastic suppliers and contacts for the wonderful prizes donated for the raffle. You have helped us reach a fantastic donation total.

A “summer” of fundraising & a sad farewell

It’s been a successful couple of months of fundraising at Nu-Heat, with various challenges and activities completed.

Skydive

Chris skydive

Chris Poole, Assistant Distribution Manager, completed a Skydive in aid of CLIC Sargent, and raised a total of £420.

“It was an amazing experience and I would quite happily do it all again! Weirdly, I wasn’t nervous at all, I just really enjoyed the whole thing – from going up in the plane to jumping out and landing.”

Race for Life

Warehouse Operative, Shirley, took part in Race for Life on 26th July. She completed the 5k course in thirty minutes and raised £150 for Cancer Research UK.

“I was really up for this run, even though it was pouring with rain! I try to think of the charity as I’m running the course, and how the money being raised will help support those with cancer.”

Nu-Heat mufti

A dress down day was held at the Nu-Heat office to raise money for Stroke Association, a charity we continue to support.

Goodbye, Clare

Clare

Clare Piper, Finance Manager, recently left the company after working with Nu‑Heat for nearly 18 years.

“Clare has a vast depth and breadth of knowledge of the business and excellent skills with credit control. But, it’s her resilience, grace under pressure, sense of humour and absolute commitment to get the job done that I will personally miss”, says Ian Jeacock, Finance Director.

All the best, Clare!

Nu-Heat fundraisers!

Over the last few months we have been fundraising for a number of different charities and causes – with one being particularly close to all of our hearts, here at Nu-Heat.

Support equipment for Jenny

Nu-Heat Receptionist, Jenny, sadly suffered a stroke in November 2014 and consequently spent a few months in hospital rehabilitating. Jenny has been a warm and energetic part of the Nu-Heat team for over eight years and is one of the most familiar voices to our customers.

We were keen to see Jenny back in the comfort of her own home so set about raising funds to enable the installation of support equipment. And, we’re very happy to report that she is now settled at home where she’ll continue on the road to recovery.

Bath Half Marathon

Bath Half Marathon

Senior Systems Administrator, Nick, who you may remember from Nu-Heat’s charity bike ride, has been raising money for charity once again. This time it was for Diabetes UK, in memory of his much loved Grampy who very sadly and unexpectedly passed away in January 2014. Nick took part in the famous Bath Half and jointly raise over £1000 with his fellow running companions.

“The weather was kind and the streets were lined with well-wishers, which made for a really enjoyable day.”

Well done, Nick. Another great effort and a substantial amount of money raised.

Comic Relief

Red Nose Day

And, we couldn’t see Red Nose Day pass without doing ‘something funny for money’! Staff made donations and wore red for the day – with those that wore anything particularly outlandish donating rather more!
