Chem-Dry aim to raise the bar and really make a difference for asthma
sufferers this year, after announcing Asthma UK as their chosen ‘Charity of the Year’ for 2010. Chem-Dry franchisees up and down the
country aim to help raise significant funds through a range of
fundraising initiatives and activities during 2010.
In 2010, Chem-Dry is proud to be supporting Asthma UK, the national charity
dedicated to helping the one in five households affected by asthma. Most people will
know someone with asthma, but many people don’t realise that this condition is
serious and claims three lives in the UK every day. In fact, more people die each
year of asthma than cervical cancer and testicular cancer combined and sadly many
adults and children with severe asthma face frequent hospital visits or can be stuck
in their own homes, trapped by breathlessness.
Asthma UK provides support and advice to all people affected by asthma, through a
range of projects, dedicated research and services. These can include specialised
holidays for children with asthma and a popular Adviceline staffed by asthma nurse
Neil Churchill, Chief Executive of Asthma UK says: “We are really excited about our
brand new partnership with Chem-Dry in 2010 and look forward to working with their
staff, franchises and customers to make a real difference for people with asthma and
maintain vital services such as our Adviceline”.
Mark Richardson, Marketing Executive, Chem-Dry Franchising, comments “We believe
this partnership is a perfect fit for our national network of franchise businesses.
Throughout 2010 we will be organising some special events and activities in an
effort to raise awareness of asthma and hopefully generate lots of funds for this
worthwhile cause. There is little doubt a fair majority of the population will have
some personal experiences of asthma and are likely to have a family member who
suffers badly from the related symptoms. We intend to build a good working
relationship with Asthma UK and hope this partnership will run beyond 2010”.
