Supporting Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough
Safe Local Trades is very proud to be supporting Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough; a charity that provides such a valuable and much-needed service in our communities. What prompted the business idea for safelocaltrades.com was watching programmes such as BBC's Rogue Traders, where the unscrupulous typically prey on the elderly and vulnerable; it was therefore a natural choice that our chosen charity to work with would be our local Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough. Scenarios highlighted in these programmes are very real and dozens of people in the UK are still falling victim on a daily basis.
Safe Local Trades work in partnership with Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough; they recommend our members to anyone who requires a tradesman, safe in the knowledge that they will get a quality and trustworthy service.
As part of our ongoing support, we carry out fundraising for Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough every year and are dedicated to making it bigger and better than the last.
Since 2009, founder and owner Eileen Le Voi has also helped to raise more than £35,000 for Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough.
David Bache, Chief Executive of Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, says: "Safe Local Trades has really helped to compliment the range of services that we offer to the older and vulnerable people of Peterborough, by successfully providing trustworthy traders to our clients over the past few years. We are very grateful to Eileen for the tireless work she has done in both creating this much-needed service and for all the fundraising she has done on our behalf."
