CLIENT TESTIMONIALS & CHARITY EVENTS

 


CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Just a quick note to thank you for your hard work and dedication in completing our kitchen. From start to finish we have been impressed with your service. You provided the best design and sourced the most suitable doors. The workmen for electrics, plumbing, flooring etc were excellent and you all worked well together ensuring the kitchen came together on time. We have been particularly impressed with your attention to detail. You have been a pleasure to deal with, you are always so polite and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others and are very proud to show off our new Langford Kitchen.

Many thanks

Mr & Mrs Walton

 


 

I just wanted to say thank you for designing and fitting our new kitchen. It looks fantastic - even better than we hoped.

Your advice in the early stages was essential as it helped us choose a design and layout that works perfectly for us. Throughout the installation you were entirely professional and very flexible.

We are really pleased that we chose a local tradesman rather than one of the big kitchen companies. Your pride in your work and attention to detail really shows through in the finished result.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your work to anyone who is considering a new kitchen.

Thanks again.

Mr & Mrs Taylor

 


I write to commend you, two of your employees who have recently finished fitting my Wickes Kitchen.

I have been greatly impressed with the work of Tim and Alan. Their attention to detail, concern and respect for my property and wishes, and politeness were a credit to them and your company. They have left me with a beautiful kitchen and very fond regards of them both.

Tim particular is a tireless worker who obviously enjoys his work and Alan is a perfectionist. Please pass on my sincere thanks to them both.

Wherever possible I will extol the virtues of their work and the people for whom they work.

Thank you again

Mrs Roots

 


It is not often these days that I am able to write with thanks for a job well done. After a very distressing 18 months living in our 'new' house I never thought the day would come when I would be happy to be there. We have now moved back and I feel confident that the experience is going to be very different.

I would like you to thank all the team involved. In particular I would like to thank Tim, who was polite, professional, worked to a very high standard and cared about what he was doing. We feel very lucky to have had these people working in our house, especially after experiencing what the original 'builder' had produced.

I would not hesitate to recommend Langford Kitchens to anyone.

Thank you all very much.

Mr & Mrs Pearson

 


Please accept the enclosed gift as a sign of our appreciation for all the hard work Tim has done to make our kitchen a success.

We know that this has not been an easy build, but no-one could have been more patient, understanding or thoughtful regarding our requirements. The quality of his work has been second-to-none with attention to detail and finish, and you can be genuinely proud of his skills.

He has been a most pleasant and polite person to have in our home and we would welcome him at any time. His qualities in today's world are rare - may they never change.

With our sincere thanks

Mr & Mrs Brockbank

Oxford Half Marathon for 'Clic Sargent'

The Event: Langford Kitchen prepared for this years event with a 10k run through London in July. Later in the year we enlisted the support our suppliers in raising money for this years Charity Clic Sargent. In October we ran through the streets of the city of dreaming spires and the surrounding countryside. We ran the track where Sir Roger Bannister broke the first ever four-minute mile in May 1954. Sir Roger Bannister was in attendance to give his support to all of the runners.

The Charity: This charity chose us again this year after meeting an inspirational family affected by Childrens Cancer.  Every day 10 children and young people hear the shocking news they have cancer. CLIC Sargent provides clinical, practical and emotional support to help them cope with cancer and get the most out of life.

Skydive for Local Charity 'Langford Village School'

The Event: An amazing experience which really took your breath away. The best view of our countryside is definitely 13,000 ft up in the air. We visited the Children in a special Friday assembly, to hand over the £802.20 raised and we answered their questions on our parachute jump. They watched our DVD of the skydive, which did inspire some very good questions from the Children.

May Day Fair Teddy Stall for 'Save The Children'

The Event: A very sunny day and a table full of teddies of all shapes and sizes. You bought a raffle ticket and if it ended in a 0 or 5 then you were a winner. It was good to see the children's smiling faces when they won and 95% of the teddies went home with a new owner.

The Thank-You: Dear Langford Kitchens

On behalf of Save the Children, may I thank you for helping at the recent May Day Fair. Without your support the event would not have been so successful and we are grateful for your kind assistance.

The total profit so far is excess of £5,000, but there is still some money to come in and a few expenses to pay so I cannot give you the final figure yet. Needless to say the Branch is delighted with the outcome of the day, and many deserving children will benefit from the profits.

Thank you again for your support.

Regards

Pauline Evans

Branch Secretary

Reindeer Dust Christmas for 'The National Autistic Society' & 'SCN Skin Camouflage Network'

The Event: As requested this has become an annual event. A mixture of oats and reindeer dust are put into bags, with a magic poem on the front, for the children to read on Christmas Eve. The idea is for the Children to sprinkle the Reindeer Dust in the garden on Christmas Eve, so it sparkles in the moonlight and helps the reindeer's find them.

The Charity: The National Autistic Society. There are over 500,000 people with autism in the UK - that's 1 in 100. Together with their families, that's over two million people whose lives are touched by autism every single day.

A lifelong development disability affecting how you communicate and interact with other people.

http://www.autism.org.uk/

The Thank-You: Dear Langford Kitchens,

Thank you very much for your recent donation of £50.00 raised by your sale of Reindeer Dust at Langford Kitchens. We'd also like to extend our thanks to the owners of Langford Kitchens who kindly matched the money raised. This wonderful donation will help us to continue supporting those affected by autism.

Your generosity enable us to provide vital services for even more people with autism and their families as well as raise much needed awareness within local communities.

50 years ago, we started as a small group of friends who were frustrated at the lack of understanding and help available for us and our children. We decided to act for ourselves, to help transform the lives of everyone affected by autism, and now, 50 years later, our small group has grown into a national society. From good times to challenging times, we're there at every stage, for parents who need advice and support for their children or adults on the spectrum who want to lead the life they choose.

Thanks to the hard work and support of people like you we can continue to do this.

Once again a BIG thank you from all of us at the National Autistic Society.

With best wishes

Kelly Hains

Supporter Care Manager

The National Autistic Society

 

The Charity: SCN The Skin Camouflage Network - There are many skin conditions and disorders which manifest themselves in visible marking and discolouration including - for example - birthmarks, vitiligo or rosacea.

Equally, there are many cases where scarring derives from accident or injury - burning, scalding or abrasion; following surgery; and tattooing.

Given the impracticability, or even unavailability of treatment to remove disfigurement permanently, an alternative treatment - skin camouflage - can be employed to cover, conceal and mask it at surface level with the application of specially formulated creams.

http://www.skincamouflagenetwork.org.uk/

The Thank-You: Dear Langford Kitchens,

I am writing to thank you for your donation to Skin Camouflage Network.

We are delighted to receive the donation and we will use it in furthering the work of SCN.

May I on behalf of all our members to again say thank you.

Kind Regards

Carol Crowther

Treasurer

Grim 8 Aldershot for 'BLESMA'

The Event: Grim is held over the Army's vehicle testing tracks in December's freezing cold conditions. You know your in for a treat when they have to break the ice on the lakes for you to run 9 miles through them.

The Charity: BLESMA The Limbless Veterans providing life after amputation and injury - the loss of a limb does not have to mean loss of activity.

http://www.blesma.org/

The Thank-You: Thank you to you all for working so hard to complete the Grim 8 Challenge and raise a fantastic total of £1,078 for BLEMSA.

Your dedication and hard work has paid off and I hope you are thrilled with all you have accomplished. It certainly sounds like it was an immense challenge. - I'm sure the photos do not do enough justice to how cold it was! Thank you for sending them in, they are now hanging proudly on our "wall of fame" in the office.

The money you have raised will help BLESMA continue our vital work. Your support means we can provide services as our comprehensive rehabilitation programme. With your help we are also able to continue with our first class dedicated welfare services, providing much needed emotional and practical support through counselling and advice.

In these recent and difficult times, we see many new members joining us, some as young as 19 years of age and we will be with them for the long haul. We still support over 400 Members, who were injured in the Second World War, which shows how long the road ahead is for our Members - and it is with your generosity that we are able to be on that long road with them.

Thank you once again on behalf of our men and women, both serving and ex-service whom you have helped support with your gift; we are very grateful.

Best wishes

Sarah Goodard

Senior Fundraising Executive - Community and Events
