Award-winning engine detox company EDT Automotive has announced its new partnership with health charity Asthma UK.
David Holmes, managing director at EDT Automotive, said: “Vehicle emissions can negatively impact air quality and are strongly linked to asthma whilst our engine detox and cleaning treatment can help to lessen the problem.”
EDT says the new partnership offers the fast-growing business a welcome opportunity to give something back.
The charity will also be supported by EDT’s partner garages – not only to help further raise the charity’s profile but also in opting to make an extra donation they will fund themselves.
Asthma UK works to stop asthma attacks and aims to ultimately cure the condition through support to sufferers and funding for research.
Every ten seconds someone in the UK has a potentially life-threatening asthma attack and three people die every day.
According to the charity, two thirds of these deaths could be prevented, yet some suffer with symptoms so severe that current treatments aren’t effective.
EDT has previously shown its commitment to providing a cleaner and greener environment, having already been awarded bronze at the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice as well as being named as International Green World Ambassadors.
EDT Automotive’s operations director Gary Rowney has a close personal connection with asthma.
His wife Caroline has suffered chronic long-term asthma whilst his children have now thankfully grown out of the condition, having previously been affected too.
Gary said: “We hope we can help to raise awareness of asthma and support Asthma UK in their constant campaign to educate people.
“There’s still a real tendency to underestimate the dangers of asthma and we just want to support the charity continuing the fantastic work it already does.”
