This week (Monday 17th – Friday 21st September), Duftons Plumbing and Heating Supplies are holding a Charity Trade Week to raise money for us! They have organised a bumper week of fundraising at all 7 of their stores across Yorkshire, and activities will include a raffle with fantastic with prizes ranging from wine to an Apple Watch; there will even be the opportunity to pie their staff members! As well as this, there will be some fantastic offers in store, with a percentage of some items being donated to the charity. In previous years, Duftons managed to raise £11,500 in total and they are hoping to do even better this year by raising over £12,000! They have 7 branches located in Leeds, Beeston, Huddersfield, Wakefield, Castleford, Halifax and Harrogate.

Nigel Fowler, Managing Director of Duftons Plumbing and Heating Supplies said “We are proud to be supporting such an amazing local charity, helping families across Yorkshire. We have lots of events going on during the week including a customer van wash day across our branch network, in addition to this we are auctioning off a brand new Ideal Instinct combination boiler and some of our staff are also having their heads shaved. I am very pleased to announce that whatever figure we manage to raise, Duftons will match the total! We look forward to a great week with lots of fun.”

Amy our Corporate Fundraiser has been visiting the sites this week and said “I have had so much fun visiting the Duftons stores! Their ideas for fundraising are innovative and fun, and all the staff are getting behind the cause! I am immensely grateful to them all, and can’t wait to return to the Leeds store on Friday to draw the raffle, and see some brave staff get pied and even shave their hair off! Thank you so much Duftons Plumbing and Heating Supplies!”
