Mercer and Sons would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers and staff who made our Trade Open Day such a success. A fantastic time was had by all and the event raised over £200 which was donated to the Cash for Kids Charity.
The official charity of Rock FM and Magic 999, Cash for Kids is a fantastically worthy cause that helps disadvantaged and disabled children right across the Lancashire area. Through tireless fundraising and lobbying activities, the charity is able to provide thousands of pounds in grants to children's charities, individuals and a number of other charitable causes. Raised and then spent locally, all of the money is used to provide varying forms of support to under-18s in the region who may be suffering physical or mental disabilities, behavioural and psychological disorders, deprivation and poverty or otherwise being abused or neglected.
A major success story of the Cash for Kids charity is the brand new multi-sensory treatment room at the Royal Preston Hospital Children's Ward. The innovative area features an array of interactive light and sound devices, along with tactile installations. Children with sensory disorders such as deafness or blindness respond incredibly well to this experience, as do children with conditions such as Down's Syndrome. The multi-sensory room has been a resounding success amongst patients and staff alike; a valuable asset to the hospital, the room represents a physical manifestation of the potential Cash for Kids and its supporters have to make positive change.
Amongst making donations, eating bacon butties, drinking tea and laughing at Mrs. Santa's Little Donkey, our customers found time to view and try out a range of high-quality architectural ironmongery and power tools. Our recently-revamped trade centre was filled with displays of many well-known products such as Dorma door closers, AEG power tools, Jackloc, Festool power tools and stainless steel door handles from the stylish Karcher range. Particularly popular were the displays of ZImmermann and Bobrick products, closely followed by Worx power tools.
Once again we would like to extend our gratitude to everyone who made the day a success. We look forward to a pleasant Christmas break and are excited about the developments of 2013, moving into the future with our customers.
