A brand-new Peterborough bathroom showroom – which opened on Saturday 22nd September at Peterborough Trade Centre – has partnered with the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice to raise funds for the charity.
Easy Bathrooms, which has other showrooms based across Kettering, Northampton and Yorkshire, has invested £110,000 into the opening, while also creating four full-time jobs.
Within the first four weeks of being open, the showroom will donate 5% of profits to the Sue Ryder hospice – which is the only specialist palliative care inpatient unit in Peterborough and provides expert palliative care and support for people who are living with life-limiting conditions. The firm will also run regular fundraisers in-store for the charity.
Commenting on the partnership, the showroom manager, Daniel Allen said: ““We’re really excited to become part of the local Peterborough community. What the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice does for people in our area is incredible and we want to give something back – that’s why we’ve chosen them as our charity partner for the foreseeable future.”
The design-led showroom has 56 fully-tiled bathroom displays for both the public and trade to browse, and is running a 40%-off opening sale.
Daniel continued: “We have some amazing displays – customers can expect products which are bang on trend, in a store that also gives you an idea of how to style the fittings.”
Clients will also be able to work with Easy Bathrooms staff to design their own bathroom, for free, using the firm’s award-winning ArtiCAD 3D system.
““Our bathroom planners are very knowledgeable about our products and the latest trends,” finished Daniel. “So, when a customer walks into one of our stores, they get their own personal designer and can leave with a better understanding of what can be achieved with their bathroom refit.”
Nilesh Patel, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall’s Community Fundraiser said: “Thank you to everyone at Easy Bathrooms for your kind support. Last year, we provided around 145,000 hours of palliative, neurological and bereavement support. Our care is free to our patients, but it costs us £3.4m per year to run. Without the generosity of our supporters, we would not be able to continue to provide the care that we are so well known for.”
The store will be open seven days a week and also welcomes trade buyers, with incentives offered to business account holders.
