More than £5,000 raised!
The Bathroom Manufacturers Association held a celebration at KBB to mark the fact that it has raised more than £5,000 for the Children's Burns Trust, handing over a cheque to the Trust during the event.
When the BMA decided to support the charity, it launched a campaign; 'Hot Water Burns Like Fire', to raise awareness of the dangers of scalding.
"The campaign is aimed at stopping scalding accidents by raising awareness of the dangers of hot water and by promoting the use of simple thermostatic devices to eliminate the risks," explained the BMA's Amy Kirk.
"Movers and shakers in the bathroom and kitchen industry are pushing hard to both raise awareness of the issues, and generate much needed cash to help support the Children's Burns Trust charity."
Fund raising is taking a number of routes, the most impressive so far being the Three Peaks Challenge undertaken by BMA staffers, Christian Taylor-Hamlin and Amy herself.
