BEST FOOT FORWARD: Colin Patterson – Hettich UK’s marketing and technical services manager – and his partner Sharon took part in a Strictly Come Dancing-style competition to help raise £48,000 for the Bury Hospice. As well as taking part in the dance competition, which saw them perform four classic dances in front of an audience of more than 300 people, they also held a race night that – with the help of family, friends and Hettich staff – helped increase their overall contribution to £2,100.


OAR-INSPIRING: Kbbreview-award-winning Scottish retailer, The Bathroom Company, has raised £3,000 for mental health charity SAMH, by completing an unusual aquatic challenge to celebrate its 25th birthday. The team of nine – made up of staff from the company’s showrooms in Edinburgh and Perth – constructed a ‘boat’ from nine baths and travelled by canal from Glasgow and Edinburgh over a full weekend. The cash will help provide vital mental health support through hundreds of support sessions in over 60 communities in Scotland.


All for a good cause…


We’ve been overwhelmed by the KBB industry’s tireless efforts to raise money for charitable organisations this month. Here’s a round-up of just some of your latest fund-raising stories


HUNGER PAINS: To help disadvantaged families and reduce the number of children turning up to school hungry, Amica has donated two fridges to the REAch2 Academy Trust Community Fridge project. The fridges will be placed in the Unity Primary Academy in Colchester and the Sir Martin Frobisher Primary Academy in Clacton and will be regularly replenished with food. Piloted in five of REAch2’s academies in the east of England, if successful, the programme will be rolled out across the UK.


PULL TOGETHER: Thanks to the efforts of staff and support from suppliers, Kent- based bathroom distributor Claygate has raised £2,500 for Cancer Research through a variety of events, including a charity football match and a sponsored row-athon. With its support, Claygate has played a vital role in finding cancer cures and helping speed up progress.


HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT: Long-established KBB retailer Rugby Fitted Kitchens held a coffee morning in support of Macmillan Nurses at its showroom in Rugby. The event – which included a Great British Bake Off-style cake competition – was well attended by suppliers, customers as well as close friends, family and work colleagues of Trevor Scott – founder and now CEO of RFK. Scott recently benefited from Macmillan support while managing his own experience with bowel cancer. The coffee morning raised £500.


NO PLACE LIKE HOME: Symphony Group’s sales director Alan Kinnes has raised more than £14,000 for global housing charity Habitat for Humanity by building homes in Malawi. The initiative was led by Miller Homes, one of Symphony’s key customers. The partnership resulted in the building of three new homes and more than £50,000 raised to support the charity’s water, sanitation and hygiene programme. The money will provide funding for a drilling rig to start work at Mazongoza Primary School to improve water, sanitation and hygiene. The programme will also provide increased access to services and income-generating activities.
