Big Wipes raises money for Help for Heroes

Published: 4 December 2012
Thanks to the generosity of tradesmen and visitors to the Painting & Decorating Show, Big Wipes was able to raise £675 for the Help for Heroes charity.
Across two days at the show, the Big Wipes team, led by the Big Wipes Babes, handed out hundreds of Big Wipes handy packs, containing industrial-strength cleaning wipes, and Help for Heroes wristbands to visitors in the aisles. Recipients were asked to pay a £2 donation in exchange for the packs of wipes (usually priced at £4), which went straight into the Help for Heroes fund.

The £675 raised will help fund the vital work that the charity carries out every day for ex-servicemen and women.

Big Wipes' managing director, Nigel Dibbo, said: "The Painting & Decorating Show was a fantastic event for us. It was also great to give something back, especially to a charity as worthwhile as Help for Heroes. We're extremely grateful to those that put their hands in their pockets to contribute to our fundraising efforts. We'd like to thank every one of them for helping us raise such a fantastic amount."
