We're raising money for DEPHER!
A boiler break down in winter can be the difference between life or death for a vulnerable person.
DEPHER - Disabled & Elderly Plumbing & Heating Emergency Repair - have supported over 17,000 people in need with free or heavily subsidised essential plumbing & heating repairs.
During the pandemic they also branched out into helping distribute personal protective equipment and setting up a foodbank for the community.
For the month of October, as the cold season begins in the UK, we will be collecting donations for this brilliant cause.
To donate simply head to the cart page and select an amount. No purchase required, no minimum, and 100% of your donation will go to DEPHER!
Setup by James Anderson, a plumber from Burnley, Lancashire in 2017 to combat fuel poverty, DEPHER is mostly reliant on public donations.
The community interest company has a network of plumbers and heating engineers to provide assistance for people who may be unable to afford the cost of their service.
“Three days ago I got an email off a lady, there was a woman in Essex who has an oil boiler and she’d got no heating or hot water. The carer that looks after her contacted me because of it. A company wanted £3,000 upfront payment before they’d even go out and look at the boiler. This woman’s 74, walking around the house in a hat, gloves, scarf – she’s on a pension, she hasn’t got that kind of money. The majority of people in this country haven’t.”
