We’re pleased to have partnered with Boiler Central, who have chosen to donate two per cent of profits for all boiler sales made throughout January. Boiler Central staff and some dedicated customers also turned off their heating on the evening of Wednesday 13 January, the coldest day of the year in Britain, in a show of solidarity with people who are experiencing homelessness.
James Elston, co-founder of Boiler Central, said: “After experiencing a successful first year in business, we wanted to focus on supporting the community and giving something back in 2021. We chose to partner with Crisis because of the amazing work they do nationally to support people without somewhere safe and secure to call home.
“Homelessness reached a peak before the pandemic and has only been worsened by the devastating effects of Covid-19. With many fundraising events cancelled during 2020 and now 2021, we wanted to help raise funds and awareness.”
Richard Lee, Director of Fundraising at Crisis, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Boiler Central for choosing to support Crisis this January. The past year has been incredibly tough for everyone and having somewhere safe and secure to call home has never been more important.
"The money raised by Boiler Central will help us to continue our vital work, making sure we can be there for as many people experiencing homelessness as possible. With their help, we can support people as they rebuild their lives and access education, training and advice to leave homelessness behind for good.”
Thank you to Boiler Central and their customers for your support.
