Easy Bathrooms Supporting Children’s Charity Miles of Smiles Chester
We know it’s a bit of a cliché to say that we’re believers in ‘giving back’. But the truth is, we really are.
Spreading the love and helping others is what life’s really all about. That’s why, throughout November, our Chester store is running an initiative for a very special charity.
Miles of Smiles Chester is a wonderful cause, which over the past 25 years, has raised over £1.5million and has taken 350 terminally ill, sick and disabled children on a ‘holiday of a lifetime’ to Disneyland Paris.
With a big push to raise the remaining funds for their next trip in September 2018, we’ve got on board to help make the dream a reality.
So, we’ll be pledging 5% of all our sales throughout November to the charity, as well as asking customers to make donations where possible.
We asked Donald Hunter, our Chester showroom manager to explain: “Miles of Smiles Chester is a charity that means a great deal to our staff, customers and community. What they do for children across our region is incredible and we’re delighted to be able to help by raising these vital funds.
“This means that whenever someone makes a purchase from our store throughout the month of November, they’ll also be giving back to these hugely-deserving children.”
The cost of the trip is £43,000 which provides luxury accommodation, VIP badges and fast-track passes, ensuring the children have a holiday to remember with no waiting around or expenses spared. The break ends with a sightseeing tour around Paris.
Sue Thomas, chairperson of Miles of Smiles added: “We would love, once again, to make some memories for some very deserving children and are absolutely thrilled that Easy Bathrooms has chosen us as their charity.
“These days it is very difficult, with all the other deserving causes out there, to keep asking people to donate, but this is a fantastic way to fundraise for us and we are truly appreciative. We look forward to the end of November and receiving our donation, which will be another step nearer to creating the ‘trip of a lifetime’.”
Donald added: “We can’t wait to hand the money over and see the photos — we know there will be some big smiles on the faces of the children!”
Our Chester store launched earlier this year in July next to Screwfix and Topps Tiles on Bumper’s Lane.
