Just before Christmas, the Love Stairlifts team embarked on a mission to give away a stairlift, with the hope of making a resident of the Merseyside area, that little bit safer at home in time for the festivities.
We knew with the current pandemic of coronavirus, there would be a lot more people at home for Christmas and potentially by themselves with worried family members unable to visit.
Although the Love Stairlifts team of Andy and Adam have worked in the Mobility and Stairlift industry for many years, Love Stairlifts was opened in September 2020 in the middle of the Covid-19 crisis. To say the least, it was tough to get going and we wanted to make sure we got the competition out to the masses as best as possible, especially as a lot of vulnerable people were staying safe behind closed doors.
So, we set about advertising the competition through ways of newspapers, instore adverts at the showroom on Edge Lane, on our website and of course social media.
We received some lovely messages from family members putting forward their elderly relatives to be amongst the entrants. It was clear to see that quite often it is the son’s and daughter’s or even grandchildren that are more worried about loved ones having an accident on the stairs then themselves.
It was lovely to see that through the power of social media via our Facebook and Instagram pages and followers, people were sharing the competition far and wide so as many people as possible could get involved.
We drew the lucky winner just before Christmas and although we had some delay due to communication issues, we where really pleased to announce that Fred and Dorothy Chester from the Wirral who had been entered by their daughter Gaenor, had WON the FREE Alma stairlift.
When we visited them, Fred 93, was struggling to get up the stairs easily, having to use two banister rails and a lot of upper body strength to pull himself up the stairs, energy that could be better reserved for other daily tasks.
We fitted the stairlift within just a few hours and with very little disruption. Both Fred and his wife now use the stairlift on a daily basis. Daughter Gaenor reports that her Dad know uses the stairs even more than he used to which is fantastic news.
