Spending a penny takes on new meaning as Geberit raises £1000s for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home

29/09/2016

Encouraging members of the public to try out a toilet may be a novel way of raising money for charity, but it proved an effective one too, with £1,000 being raised for Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home by bathroom manufacturer Geberit.

The people of Edinburgh came out in their droves to take a look at the Geberit promotional truck when it passed through the city this summer, with the company donating £1 to charity for every passerby that ‘spent a penny’ while learning about the latest shower toilet technology.

The campaign was part of a nationwide initiative to introduce more people to this latest technology for the bathroom, and highlight the many health and well-being benefits of choosing a shower toilet rather than a standard model.

Each person coming aboard the Geberit AquaClean tour was invited to try the Geberit AquaClean shower toilet out for size. By doing so, they were also doing their bit for charity, with £1 being donated by Geberit to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home for every visitor penny spent.

A cheque made out to Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home for the princely sum of £1,000 was presented to representatives from the charity recently. Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home’s Chief Executive Howard Bridges said:

“From everyone at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home and all the animals in our care I’d like to thank the Geberit team and their customers. Donations like this have a huge impact on our work and make it possible for us to rescue, re-home and reunite animals from across Edinburgh and beyond.”
