A 4-month joint initiative saw every purchase of a Vaillant ecoTEC plus from Willbond, HPS, Plumbcity, Plumbstop, Plumbstore, UKPS, MDS, Plumbase, Gas Centre or Michael Pavis branches across the UK matched with a donation to a local food bank, chosen by the contributing merchant branch.
Throughout the year, Vaillant’s Regional Business Managers have partnered with local branches to host a number of fundraising events and activities which helped to raise further funds. Thanks to this initiative and the help of local installers, food banks across the UK have been able to access their share of more than £35,000 raised in donations.
Steve Wimbledon, Commercial Director at UK Plumbing Supplies commented: “The donations made to foodbanks across the UK will go a long way to helping families in need at this time of year. We’ve had such a great turn out from our loyal customers, who’ve not only been able to make a donation through a purchase of an ecoTEC plus, but have also donated from their own pockets getting involved in branch raffles or competitions, which is fantastic.”
Spencer Clark, Commercial Director at Vaillant added: “At Vaillant we remain committed to supporting our loyal installers and the communities they work in. Our latest initiative with UK Plumbing Supplies has been very rewarding and we’re incredibly proud to have been able to support our installers by making the donation for each ecoTEC plus they’ve purchased. I’m sure the £35,000 will really help support these local communities in which our installers are working each and every day”.
