The “Shop-in-a-box” scheme.
Does your station hold an Open Day and wish to create funds for our charity? Why choose us to help?
There is no financial outlay required by you or your station, as each item (including the helmets) is supplied on a “sale or return” basis.
The selection of products is varied; we supply only quality and own-branded items.
Product & Public liability insurance (to the value of £5 million) is in place.
Product guarantees, a returns policy and procedure are also in place, with a full and complete aftersales service.
Simple paperwork and therefore, better financially accountability.
None of your valuable time is wasted in trying to source suitable items, as that has already been done.
Event publicity material supplied (a future service).
We have been running the scheme successfully since 1997 at fire stations in Essex and Hertfordshire, and recently, throughout the country. The name "Shop-in-a-box" succinctly describes the scheme and how it operates. It allows Fire stations, without any financial commitment or utilizing other resources, to run a small shop at an open day or similar type event, with the sole intention of creating funds for the Fire Fighters Charity.
The products supplied through the season and from year to year will change, as they are subject to demand and availability. Although the type of stock for resale remains basically the same from station to station, the quantities will differ due to the size and location of the individual station.
