A Cloudy2Clear franchise owner is stepping-up preparations for April’s Brighton Marathon.
Aaron Smith, who helps people across Brighton and Hove replace their failed double glazing window panes, will be running the marathon in aid of Parkinson’s UK.
The charity is close to his heart as his father suffers from the disease and has moved into full time care. Aaron is hoping to raise £450 which will go towards the charity’s drive to provide better care, better treatments and a better quality of life for those with Parkinson’s.
The father of one, has always had an enthusiasm for sport and has played football for most of his life. However, long distance running presents a new sporting discipline.
33 year-old Aaron said: “I’ve always wanted to take up a challenge but somehow something has got in the way. Now, the time feels right to do this for my dad and hopefully I can raise awareness and funds for such a fantastic charity too.
“My training programme is tough and I am doing about 90 minutes training, five evenings a week but I’m hoping to achieve the full distance with a time under four hours on the day.
“I’m sure my fiancée and son will be there to cheer me on when energy levels are depleting.”
Cloudy2Clear has thrown its weight behind Aaron’s fundraising efforts with a £50 donation. You can help him reach the fundraising target by clicking on his Just Giving page.
The Brighton Marathon Weekend is a full weekend of running and celebration comprising the BM10k, the Brighton Marathon, The Cancer Research UK Kids & Teens Mini Mile Races and the Brighton Marathon Exhibition. The 2017 event will take place 7-9 April with thousands taking part, supporting and spectating.
“C2C’s Jayne Raven Takes-Up The Challenge To Raise Funds For Rosmere Cancer Foundation”
Ormskirk (England) – October 4, 2016 : Cloudy2Clear UK Ltd, today continued their legacy of giving back to the communities in which they operate, this time sponsoring one of their own in her efforts to raise funds for the Rosmere Cancer Foundation. Jayne Raven, Cloudy2Clear’s Marketing Co-ordinator is embarking on a gruelling sponsored workout programme on Sunday, 9th October, 2016.
Jayne must choose any three exercise programmes and run them concurrently for over three hours. The choices of exercises in the first session range from ‘Spinning’ to ‘Zumbathon’. Session two options range from ‘Body Combat’ to ‘Gym Circuits’. Session three options range from ‘Body Pump’ to ‘10km Run’.
Speaking about the sponsorship, Peter Chorlton, Operations Manager said, “Most people do one session as part of their exercise routine and then they go home shattered. Imagine the inner resolve required to do not two, but three, consecutively. That is an extreme effort that merits all of our support. The dedication and commitment required to do this is phenominal. Jayne has been working hard to prepare for this and we are all so proud of her and that’s why we have sponsored her. We hope that you will also raise your hat to this Herculean effort and sponsor her too. You can sponsor her online via Virgin Money HERE.
Marcus McGee, Cloudy2Clear’s Managing Director said, “When we launched Cloudy2Clear In The Community, we did so on the platforms of sports and young people as we felt that these are the areas that we could make the most difference. Jayne’s upcoming epic fitness marathon will raise money through sports that will hopefully change someone’s life. If we all had the will power and determination to do good that Jayne has shown in preparing for this event, the world would be a better place. Come on everyone, every little helps – sponsor Jayne and sponsor Rosemere Cancer Foundation.”
Cloudy2Clear UK Ltd, the UK’s number 1 glass replacement company for your failed double glazing, proudly sponsors Leah Webb, from March in Cambridgeshire, as she raises money for Great Ormond Street Hospital. 10-year-old Leah will be organising a bingo night at the March United Services Club in March on Tuesday August 16.
Speaking about the Bingo Night, Tina Webb (Leah’s mum) said:
“Doors open for the bingo night at 6.00pm and ‘eyes-down’ will be at 6.45pm. There will be the usual bingo with an extra game being sold to win £50 cash as well as a children’s game.
We will also hold a raffle and will be selling cakes as well as sweets with all proceeds going to Great Ormond Street Hospital. We would like to thank Cloudy2Clear for sponsoring a prize and we hope that it will draw more people to take part in the bingo night.”
According to Jayne Raven, marketing co-ordinator for Cloudy2Clear:
“I think we can all learn a lesson from little Leah. Even at such a tender age, Leah is doing her bit to make peoples’ lives better. It is her genuine desire to do-good that made us immediately agree to sponsor her efforts to raise money for Great Ormond Street.
As a good corporate citizen, we look to support the communities in which we operate. Sometimes this comes in the form of big national events and sometimes its as simple as helping a 10-year-old girl raise money for something she is passionate about.”
Leah recently took part in ‘Brave The Shave’ for Macmillan Cancer Support, shaving off her waist length white-blonde locks and donating it to The Little Princess Trust. Leah raised over £1,300!
This year, Cloudy2Clear has already sponsored Cycled The Length Of The Amazon, Squash for Deaf Kids, John Hartson Foundation Charity Golf and now Leah’ Bingo Night.
Stratford-Upon-Avon (England) – Friday, July 22, 2016 : Cloudy2Clear UK Ltd, the UK’s number #1 glass replacement company for your failed double glazing, proudly sponsors ‘Luke Sport’s Golf Day’ charity event, in support of the John Hartson Foundation which aims to create awareness of testicular cancer.
Speaking about the sponsorship, Marcus McGee, Managing Director, Cloudy2Clear said “The sponsorship by our Wolverhampton branch of a hole during the ‘Luke Sports Golf Day’ is in line with our efforts to give back to the communities in which we operate and promote healthier lives. This latest sponsorship under our ‘Cloudy2Clear in The Community’ banner represents our third sports themed CSR initiative of the year, having already sponsored a cycling initiative to raise funds for Hope Against Caner, Loros and Lord’s Taverners and a squash centre of excellence for deaf kids throughout the North West of England.”
“We launched the ‘Cloudy2Clear In The Community’ initiative in May 2016 in conjunction with our 10th anniversary as we felt that we now have the scale, capability and reputation to make a difference and sports is a wonderful vehicle to do that. Sports is universal, unaffected by race or gender and promotes health through fun. We would like to thank Luke Sports for reaching out to us, inviting us to be a partner at this event and we hope that our collective efforts helps the John Hartson Foundation in their noble efforts to create awareness in the fight against testicular cancer”.
Ormskirk (England), July 11, 2016 – Cloudy2Clear UK Ltd, the UK’s Number #1 glass replacement franchise, this year celebrates their 10th year anniversary and in commemoration the company is launching a 25 year guarantee to their customers.
Speaking about the 25 year guarantee, Marcus McGee, Managing Director of Cloudy2Clear UK said, “A decade in, Cloudy2Clear now has the reputation, scale, sustainability and proven track record to be able to launch two programmes that will make a significant difference to the communities in which we operate and also to the consumers we ultimately serve. Firstly, is ‘C2C-In-The-Community’ – our CSR commitment. Secondly, our 25 Year Guarantee” The ‘Cloudy2Clear 25 Year Guarantee’ will see participating branches offer customers who replace their failed double glazed units, (just the glass) with a 25 year guarantee on the new glass. The guarantee is provided and covered by C2C UK Warranty LTD and is subject to terms and conditions.
Marcus McGee added, “When we opened our first franchise in 2006, covering the Preston & Blackpool area, we could never have imagined that just 10 years later, we would be opening our 50th branch, an accomplishment we achieved in May of this year. This year also sees us break the milestone of 300,000 enquiries. I believe our popularity and success stems from the fact that we are an honest and ethical service provider that aims to help our customers save money. When a double glazed unit fails and steams up, a lot of people panic and think they have to spend a fortune replacing the entire window, frames and all. This in many cases isn’t necessary and Cloudy2Clear will help you change just the glass, saving you money.”
Cloudy2Clear has also this year been rewarded for their ethical operations by becoming a ‘Which Trusted Trader’. This acknowledgment is testament to the hard work of everyone at Cloudy2Clear in changing the mind-set of the consuming public. Whereas previously there was a trust deficit towards the glazing industry, Cloudy2Clear’s efforts to provide free quotations delivered within 20 minutes by their team of accredited and trained representatives, continued efforts to help our customers save money by replacing the glass – not the frames, has been recognised by consumer watchdog powerhouse ‘WHICH’.
