What If We Put All Our Small Change In The Same Jar?

angeloAs many of our customers are aware, Coinadrink supports a charity called ‘Just Small Change.’ We have a simple formula: every time somebody buys a bottle of water from one of our bottled water coolers, we donate a percentage. So far we’ve raised £750.

It’s not much, is it? In fact, it’s just small change…

However, as anyone who’s ever collected coins in a jar will know, over time, that ‘small change’ can turn into a substantial sum of money and with that in mind, we thought you might be interested to find out how that money is being used.

Water, Water Everywhere!

… but what’s the best to drink?

 

Living in the UK, you’d be forgiven for thinking that drinking water is the least of our problems…

We take it for granted, don’t we? But water is the main component of the human body. In fact, wrapped up in all that skin and bone, we’re 55 to 78 per cent water, depending on body size. So, it’ll come as no surprise that regular water consumption has numerous health benefits and, as an added plus, it has no calories, no fat; no carbohydrates and no sugar.

The water we consume everyday plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy body. Experts recommend we drink eight to ten glasses of it every day to stay tip-top.

Our Survey Said:

Last November, we invited customers to complete a Customer Care Survey. Here’s what we discovered…

It’s always been our philosophy as a company to take a regular, critical look at ourselves and our business and there’s no better way to do this than to ask the people who know us best – our customers – exactly what they think of us.

So, every year, we distribute a Customer Care Survey and for every completed survey we donate £5 to charity. (Last year, through our association with Promise Dreams, we were able to ‘make a promise and deliver a dream’ to a determined young lady called Olivia. You can read Olivia’s moving story here. )promise_dreams

It’s great to be able to help out and the feedback we get from our customers via the survey is massively important to us.

Here’s One Record That Can Never Be Broken…

Remember the story we shared back in November, about our annual ‘Long Service’ dinner? (Click here to read it). We were making the point that the number of Coinadrink staff, who are entitled to attend the ‘do’, (because they’ve been with us for at least twenty-five years), now stands at fourteen. Add to that partners and, of course, Roger and Yvonne and it’s quite a get-together; which is, we’re sure you’ll agree, a pretty amazing fact in this day and age.

So here’s another pretty amazing fact for you: it’s about Stuart Westwood, our popular Service Manager. When he joined our long-service legends in 2013, he was the youngest of the lot. In fact, it’s not possible to be any younger and be a club member…

Stuart Westwood

Allow us to explain: Stuart was born on the 27th of August, 1972. He joined us straight from Willenhall Comprehensive, starting on 26th of July, 1988, aged 15 years, 11 months. So, add 25 to that, and you have it. Achieving 25 years of service at Coinadrink, aged 40 years and 11 months, is a record that’s never going to be broken. You see, since Stuart’s day, the school-leaving age has been raised…
