Westco has donated over £1,200 to fund rehabilitation and support for children living with burns. The contribution resulted from our commitment to give a percentage of every Safeguard Thermostatic Mixing Valve (TMV) we sell to the Children’s Burns Trust.
The funds will go towards purchasing much-needed rehabilitation and play equipment for paediatric burns units, provide direct support to children and families post-burn, and help the charity to deliver on its “Hot Water Burns like Fire” prevention messages. In addition, this year the Trust will also fund three family therapy weekends, and (in association with the Fire Fighting Charity), sponsor children to attend summer burns camps and an annual Jamboree in Cambridgeshire. The children who participate in these events not only grow in confidence, but also forge long-term friendships with other burns survivors from different parts of the county.
The charity has thanked Westco for its support.
“In this increasingly difficult economic climate, we are only able to continue the work we do as a direct result of the kind generosity shown by our supporters. We are very grateful to Westco for the donation and continued support.“

Designed to regulate the temperature of hot water, TMVs blend hot and cold water to ensure it’s supplied at a safe heat. At the same time, water can be stored at a higher temperature so that it kills the Legionella bacteria. Westco’s Safeguard TMV is approved for use in both TMV 2 and TMV 3 environments and can help prevent accidents amongst vulnerable people such as young children and the elderly.
We’d like to pass on our thanks to our customers who have bought a Safeguard TMV and helped us to support this vital work.
