    ‘Hello Mike, this is Lawson Wight from the Guild’

    Oh, hello’

    ‘Mike, it’s just a quick call to let you know that your ticket was the first one drawn in the raffle at last week’s dinner – so you’ve won a very nice new stove’.

    ‘Wow!……. that’s great. I’m actually in the middle of a really bad cre-away job so you’ve really made my day’.    This was the conversation a couple of days ago when Mike Marriotte found out he’d won a fantastic Hamer Eco HD5 stove worth about £800 in the Guild Charity Raffle. The stove was donated by the Guild and Mike bought his winning ticket online, just 15 minutes before sales closed 😊.

    The Raffle raised a new record amount of £2521.00. The proceeds will be shared between Carbon Monoxide awareness and victim support charity CO gas-safety and Macmillan Cancer Care. We are also investigating how we might support fundraising and awareness for a permanent memorial to a child chimney sweep who died working inside a chimney nearly 150 years ago.

    Mike Marriotte – proud owner of a new Hamer stove.

    Once again, huge thanks to all our fantastic exhibitors and sweeps who donated a prize, we couldn’t do it without you.

      “During my research I had come across some forum talk online which was very negative about the cost of the Guild’s training program. I guess it does seem like a lot of money to start with but, like most things, there is more to it than meets the eye and you get a lot more […]
