Daisy Wholesale aims for £6k charity target


Christmas dealer incentive will include a donation to action for children charity

Daisy Wholesale has launched a Christmas dealer incentive that will see a donation made to charity for each qualifying product sold.

The firm says it hopes to raise £6,000 for the Action in Children charity. The incentive runs until the 23rd December. Products that qualify for the incentive include SIP trunks, broadband, ethernet and mobile connections.

“We really wanted to do something extraordinary this year,” said managing director Terry O’Brien. “From our forecasts we have estimated that we should raise at least £6,000, which is a fantastic amount and will hopefully make a real positive difference at such a special time for kids.” Staff from the distributor have also recently raised almost £8,000 for charity by scaling the peak of Mount Snowdon in Wales.

Peak performance

A team of 40 smashed its original £5,000 target raising £7,800 for homophobic and transphobic bullying in schools charity, Diversity Role Models.

The team took eight hours to travel up and down the Watkins track of the mountain, which is said to be the most difficult ascent of the peak.

“I never expected it to be an easy challenge and in fairness I didn’t really know what to expect, but it was far harder than I had considered,” said adds O’Brien.

“The final 250 metres was particularly difficult with a steep incline with near sheer drops, especially in high winds and torrential rain.

“We have all suffered aches and pains, but the sense of achievement amongst the group definitely shone through. Coupled with the amazing funds that we have raised for such a worthwhile charity, I feel extremely proud and thankful to all who took part in the climb itself.”
