Kärcher kick off partnership with first fundraiser
Kärcher will be raising money for the RNLI this weekend as part of our new 4-year partnership.
We recently announced a new partnership with Kärcher, who will be supporting the RNLI for the next 4 years by delivering our drowning prevention messages to their customers, generating income by supporting our fundraising and safety campaigns, and supplying the best cleaning equipment to our lifesavers.
Following on from the Float to Live clean art installation, pressure ‘washed’ onto the sea wall of Brighton Marina to mark the start of our partnership, Kärcher will be supporting the RNLI with their first fundraising event this weekend.
From 12am on Friday 24 to 11.59pm on Sunday 26 September, Kärcher will donate 10% of every item sold on its UK website to the RNLI. Customers will also be able to take advantage of sale prices on selected Kärcher products over the weekend, including pressure washers, vacuum cleaners and leaf blowers.
More to come
James Gordon, Kärcher Marketing Director, says:
‘We are proud and honoured to be partnering with the RNLI, and supporting the vital work they do in saving lives at sea. Donating 10% of all our online sales this weekend to the RNLI is just the first of many promotional events to come.
'The best part is our customers don’t even need to do anything as the donation will automatically be calculated and sent to the RNLI on their behalf.’
John Payne, RNLI Director for Lifesaving Operations, says:
‘Kärcher’s efficient equipment will save RNLI volunteers’ time and continue to ensure lifeboats are ready to launch to those in trouble at sea.
'In addition to sharing our drowning prevention advice and supplying cleaning equipment, Kärcher has pledged to generate income, fundraise for us and donate a percentage of sales via sales promotions throughout the partnership, starting off with this weekend’s promotional activity.’
