“I have never attempted anything like this before but I entered because it is such a good


cause: I hadn’t anticipated how challenging the walk would be.


“It was a very enjoyable event, the atmosphere was incredible. However, at the 20 mile mark I could start to feel the blisters. After the event, I couldn’t walk properly for a week!”


Clare’s team entered the event for family reasons and raised a total of £2,000. Te event has so far raised over £7 million.


STAY PROTECTED WITH TROJAN


The Trojan Manufacturing Group has recently announced the latest addition to its range: re- usable cover protectors designed to be used with is popular sash lock.


Designed for use in building or renovation projects, the PVC protectors can be fitted over the locks to prevent them from being damaged or spoilt while other trades are still working in the property. Te protectors save both time and money by removing the risk of having to replace damaged hardware items at a later stage, and are available from stock now.


Te protectors have been introduced following customer demand,


as Tony Chadwick, Trojan Group’s Managing Director explains: “Damage to hardware products during building or renovation projects will be a familiar complaint for most installers and wastes both time and money.


It’s something installers have been putting up with for a long time, but we realised it wasn’t something that was just a ‘fact of life’. Te PVC cover protectors prevent damage or spoilage during the messier phases of a building or refurbishment project. Once those phases are complete, the protectors can simply be removed and put away until the next time they’re needed.”


Te feedback from the introduction of the sash protectors has been so positive that the company will soon be launching cover protectors for their door handles and backplates.


Trojan is renowned for designing products that makes installers’ lives easier. Te introduction of the PVC cover protectors demonstrates that the company’s design team doesn’t just think about products, it also thinks about the process and the real working environments of its customers. Tere can be no doubt these cover protectors will be a valuable addition to many installers’ toolboxes.
