During the month of August House of Fisher will be supporting The Fire Fighters Charity. Whilst we have always had great admiration for the amazing efforts from the fire department, witnessing the heroic, self-sacrificing activities during the tragic Grenfell Tower incident recently touched us to support this organisation and further highlight their fantastic work.
With almost 200 apartments within the Thames Valley area, we work closely with The Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS)/Hampshire Fire and Rescue. They maintain close ties to the local community and provide us with knowledgeable advice ensuring we maintain the best practises for the safety of our guests. Inevitably there have been incidents involving our guests over the years at a few locations, which the Fire and Rescue Service have provided quick and valuable support to resolve.
The Fire Fighters Charity has been established for 74 years, originally being set up during World War II. Throughout its history and to this day it provides brave men and women employed within the Fire and Rescue Service with support for injuries, illness and psychological challenges. Amongst the fantastic work undertaken, the charity provides counselling, support, therapies, rehabilitation, nursing and recuperation services.
So how can you support our campaign in August? Everyone booking with House of Fisher throughout August will have the option of donating to The Fire Fighters Charity. On our website there is the option of contributing an addition £1, £5, £10 or a custom donation to all bookings. If booking over the phone or on email, the reservations team can add your donation to the order and will include this on the returning secure payment link. The fantastic part of donating through House of Fisher is that we will match all donations during this month, generously doubling your amount for this fantastic cause. For further information and the T&C’s please click here.
The majority of our portfolio in the Thames Valley area have been built by our parent company T A Fisher. This is rare within our industry, as an owner operator it allows us to ensure our rigorous standards of both quality and safety are maintained. We are proud that T A Fisher have a fantastic record for Health & Safety and building standards, meeting and often exceeding all legal compliances, making them a perfect partner for us.
Throughout August we will be providing updates about the amount we raise and the activities around this. Please follow our activities, like and share them to maximise the impact and awareness we can create for this fantastic cause. To follow our activates, use the #HOFcharity on both Twitter and Facebook. We look forward to updating you with progress and hope our guests will be generous to enable us to provide a large donation to The Fire Fighters Charity.
