Ryan Penniston, who owns Ovenu Maidenhead, is to donate 10% from every oven clean he completes until August 31st, in support of the Anthony Nolan charity.
A philanthropic Maidenhead businessman has targeted raising £500 to support people with blood cancer.
Ryan Penniston, who owns oven valeting firm Ovenu Maidenhead, is to donate 10% from every oven clean he completes until August 31st, in support of Anthony Nolan – a charity which helps match individuals with those in need of stem cell or bone marrow transplants.
Ryan has recently been accepted onto the Anthony Nolan stem cell donor register and is aiming to help raise awareness about the charity. Ryan is also encouraging others to follow suit and register, having been inspired to do so through a mutual friend.
"I donate to many charities – some close to my heart, and others because I want to try and help make a difference to people’s lives. The Anthony Nolan charity is a fantastic cause and by signing up to the register, should I be called upon, I could potentially save someone’s life, which would be a very satisfying feeling.
My aim is to raise £500 and anything over my initial target is a bonus, all of which go to supporting this amazing charity and its research. Hopefully I can persuade others to sign up to the register too."
Ovenu Maidenhead provides its environmentally-friendly oven valeting service to homes and businesses throughout the Maidenhead area including Marlow, Cookham & Taplow
Ovenu is a franchise network made up of more than 100 businesses owned by men and women working throughout the UK.
Rik Hellewell, Managing Director and Founder of Ovenu, said:
"This isn’t the first and I’m sure it won’t be the last time that Ryan has taken it upon himself to support a worthy cause by donating a portion of his profits, and this is another fantastic initiative he has undertaken. I would like to wish him all the very best with his fundraising efforts."
The Ovenu valeting process involves dismantling key components of an oven such as the door, interior panels, fan and shelves and placing them into design-registered tank equipment, which uses safe, non-caustic products to clean the oven parts. The whole process takes around three to four hours and leaves the oven, hob and exterior in immaculate condition.
