BHETA to ‘walk 500 miles’ for Rainy Day Trust

Published: 23 November 2020 - Neil Mead

A British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) team is set to walk (or run) over 500 miles between now and Christmas to raise money for the industry charity, The Rainy Day Trust. The specific target is 509 miles, that being the distance between BHETA’s most northerly member, housewares manufacturer, Aydya based in Dundee and the most southerly, heating and plumbing supplier, Select Products based in Torbay.

Each member of the BHETA team will individually complete as many miles as they can during the next two months and record the distances achieved until the combined target of 509 is reached.

“Because of lockdown and social distancing, we’ve designed this charity challenge as something we can do as individuals, but with a collective target,” explained marketing services manager Nicola Adams. She continued, “The Rainy Day Trust is the only charity which exists solely to help people who work or have worked in the UK’s home improvement and enhancement industry, so it’s a great cause for BHETA to support.  We are all hoping that the BHETA membership will sponsor us either as individuals or as a team, so we can raise funds which are much needed in these difficult times.”

The BHETA 500 Mile Walk team comprises Nicola Adams, Helen Farnell and Zara Miah from BHETA member services, marketing manager, Steve Richardson, Chief Operating Officer, Will Jones, Executive Chairman, Andrew Weiss, Seema Grantham, housewares sector manager, Keeley Vernon, DIY sector manager and Finance Director, Clare Holland.

Companies or individuals who would like to sponsor the BHETA team should contact Member Services Manager, Nicola Adams on or 07946 078566.or visit the justgiving page using the link below.
