EPE Group, the distributor of branded small domestic appliances, has become a partner of industry charity The Rainy Day Trust.
The Rainy Day Trust is the only charity which exists solely to help people who have worked in the UK’s home improvement and enhancement industry. It supports businesses such as cookshops, hardware stores, DIY stores, builders merchants and garden centres – and all the manufacturers, distributors and retailers in the UK who supply them.
EPE Group’s investment and marketing director Harry Singh said: “The Rainy Day Trust has been assisting those from our industry for many years and we wanted to give something back. We are delighted, therefore, to become a formal partner of the industry charity – and extend our support to those who have played an active role in our industry over the years. The Rainy Day Trust has been doing that for 170 years, and the show felt it was appropriate to help fund its work.”
The Rainy Day Trust general secretary Diane Stevens said: “We are delighted that the EPE Group is supporting the charity and look forward to working with them as partners. It’s great news for all our beneficiaries in the industry.”
