Hardware specialist VBH used FiT Show 2016 to launch the Platinum TS007 3 star cylinder from Yale.
The VBH stand featured a large Yale Platinum display that included a Find the Key competition. Significant cash prizes were on offer from VBH, as well as Smart Home Alarm and CCTV installations courtesy of Yale Door and Window Solutions.
Jayesh Patel of London’s Everglade Windows Ltd was the lucky winner of a £500 cash prize, which he suggested should be donated to a worthy cause of his choice.
VBH and Yale both matched his donation and Jayesh split the £1500 between the Great Ormond Street Hospital for children, and the Katie Piper Foundation for their ‘Inner Beauty Embraced’ fund in honour of the amazing Tulsi Vagjiani.
Tulsi lost both parents and a sibling in a plane crash at the age of 10 and was herself badly injured. Overcoming her emotional and physical scars, Tulsi has pushed on into adulthood and serves as an inspiration to us all to challenge whatever life throws at us.
Gary Gleeson of VBH tells us ‘When our MD Peter Rowlands presented Jayesh with his winning ticket, Jayesh said immediately that he would be giving the £500 to charity. Both VBH and Yale were delighted to be able to contribute towards the causes that he chose. It was an unexpected bonus to our appearance at FiT and we wish him well with any future fund raising.’
