Primetech’s EasyTrac mats help Derian House hospice save £5000

Derian 2

Weighing just 5kg per mat, the 600 mm wide, 70mm thick Extra Strong mats can easily carry loads of up to 16 tonnes and were very well suited to preventing large vehicles from damaging the lawns.

Primetech’s EasyTrac mobility mats, which can provide improved wet weather and damp ground access for vehicles of all sizes, have been used recently to help a charity maximise its fund raising efforts by avoiding losing a bond deposit for a major charity event.

Derian House, a hospice for children and young people based in Chorley, Lancashire was able to protect its ground damages bond of £5000 by ensuring it accrued no financial penalties at a major charity fundraising event held in November.

The Winter Sparkle Spectacular, held at Astley Park, Chorley is a regular and important source of income for the charity, which requires almost  £4million per year to fund its valuable work supporting children and families at times of great stress. A large number of vehicles, some quite large, were required to support the event. These included a mini fairground (Helter Skelter, Carousel, Bungee trampoline, Snow-globe) plus a variety of catering trailers.
