Yorkshire Day 2018

Ay up lad! – today is Yorkshire Day! This year, Yorkshire Day is hosted by the city – Ripon, where UK Bathrooms is based! Yorkshire Day is always celebrated on 1st of August and this year is certainly no exception.

History of the Yorkshire Day

Yorkshire Day signifies to the Battle of Minden on August 1, 1759, when British forces bypassed through gardens in Minden which were blossoming with roses. The British troops picked white roses and placed them in their helmets and coats. The allied soldiers defeated the French, it was then decided that Minden Day, 1st August was the perfect day to mark Yorkshire Day.

Ripon is hosting a parade through the town, a commemorative service and children’s activities. As the celebration this year is just around the Corner of our head office, UK Bathrooms team visited the town centre to get into the ‘Yorkshire Day’ vibe.

There will also be a picnic in the Dean’s Garden, live music from Ripon City Band and Mancunian Steel later on in the evening. Followed by a special edition of the Ripon horn blowing ceremony, a centuries-old tradition which has taken place every night since 886. Finally, we will finish of the day with a “reet-grand” firework display!

Tell us how you are celebrating Yorkshire Day!

Feedback really helps other customers out and lets us know both what’s working and what we can improve upon to give you the best customer experience. We love seeing final bathroom design images to see the products we sell and recommend so highly coming together in a final design!

Neil and his family have done a great job here converting their bathroom. Neil has cleverly combined contemporary and traditional style pieces to give this bathroom a brand new character and fresh, light look.

Neil fed the following back to us:

“We asked UK Bathrooms to source all our new bathroom fixtures and fittings from their suppliers, we now have a beautiful bathroom with a wonderful bath and shower, the kids are over the moon.
The customer service was excellent from start to finish, I can’t recommend them highly enough.
First class service and keen pricing with designer brands. A very satisfied customer.” – Neil and family

Story: Bawili from The Democratic Republic of Congo

UK Bathrooms began supporting Toilet Twinning in March this year. Each month we sponsor (twin) 10 toilets in different 10 countries that are in extreme poverty. This funding helps to improve the hygiene situation and also provide people with a proper latrine.

Bawili Hamisi and daughter Ebinda, Mwandiga 3 Community, Eastern DRC.

Bawili’s story

This month we are sharing Bawili’s story. Bawii is a widow from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, she raised her family on her own. Bawii’s husband was killed during a civil war in DMC. After the civil war, the rest of the family escaped to Tanzania and stayed in a refugee camp. After 10 years, they were forcibly returned to their home country where they had no home, no clean water and no toilet.

Bawii’s daughter, Ebinda had to walk for 90 minutes, three times a day to gather water from Lake Tanganyika. However, the water source was dirty and many people became ill with cholera. One day when Ebinda was still a teenager, she was attacked and raped by several men when she went to the toilet in the bush. As the consequence of the assault, she was pregnant.

Determined not to let other families suffer as hers did, Ebinda’s Mother, Bawili, joined a Community Health Club which was set up by Toilet Twinning’s support. It educates local people about hygiene and encourages them to build toilets. She devoted herself to the group and is now the Club President.

Bawili was unable to undertake the building work involved to construct her own toilet, so health club members worked together and built her a toilet recently. As villagers construct toilets together, they also develop a stronger sense of community and help one another. ‘We’re learning to work together… to love each other,’ says Bawili. ‘If there is no love, we cannot build a good society. We used to be ashamed when people shouted abuse as we walked to the bush. I’m so happy to have a toilet next to the house now.’

If you would like to learn more about Bawili family’s story please watch the following video about their journey.

 

We are proud to have received UK Bathrooms sponsors certificate for April.

Our April Certificate

These are the countries that we supported this month!

 

If you would like to support a family like Bawili, you can support through Toilet Twining.
