Vaillant and merchants raise £35,000 for foodbanks

Foodbanks have received £35,000 in donations thanks to an initiative by Vaillant and local plumbers’ merchants.

The four-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 matched with a donation to a local food bank, chosen by the contributing merchant branch.

Vaillant regional business managers teamed up with local branches to host fundraising events and activities to raise money, with the help of local gas engineers too.

Steve Wimbledon, commercial director at UK Plumbing Supplies says: “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 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.”

Vaillant commercial director Spencer Clark says: “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.”
