Christmas lunch for local Senior Citizens

Honiton Community College held their annual Christmas dinner for local Senior Citizens this week.

Due to popular demand the number of attendees increased 20% on last year’s event and looks as if it will increase again for the much anticipated 2014 dinner!

The local college is very much at the heart of the community and received great support for the event not only from the local media but many local companies also, including Nu-Heat.

The raffle raised just over £300 for the two nominated charities – The Royal British Legion and Devon Air Ambulance.

Employee Skydive!

 Nu-Heat employees Sarah Dean and Pete Bell took the skies this August to throw themselves out of a perfectly good aeroplane, all in aid of Bowel Cancer UK.

The pair jumped from 15,000 ft. and ‘enjoyed’ a full 60 seconds of free-fall at 120mph before settling into a ‘relaxing’ parachute ride back to the ground!

“The skydive was amazing; I would do it again now if I could!” says Sarah. 

“A huge thank you to those that kindly sponsored us; we really appreciate your generosity.” says Peter.

Sarah and Pete raised a fantastic £1,800 for Bowel Cancer UK.

Bowel Cancer UK aims to save lives and improve the quality of life for all those affected by bowel cancer.

100km Jurassic Classic cycle challenge!

 

Nick and Rob, both Nu-Heat employees, completed the 100km Jurassic Classic cycle challenge in August in support of Prostate Cancer UK.

The ride, which is named as one of the ‘top 10 cycling events in the UK’ on the Guardian website, saw over 1000 riders complete the course this year.

“The ride follows the Jurassic Coastline so we saw some fantastic scenery along the way,” says Rob.

“Both of us made it back to Exmouth within 4 ½ hours and the complimentary ‘end of ride’ pasty was very welcome!”
