Warren's Extra Hour

LONDON, October 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The clocks go back this Sunday, 28th October, giving everyone a precious extra hour to enjoy.  It goes without saying that most will take the opportunity to catch up on missed sleep, or to stay snuggled up with a loved one in bed. But award winning bed makers Warren Evans are taking a different approach and encouraging Brits to use the time to help others.

The company are inviting people to blog, Facebook or tweet about the London and Brighton-based charities or community projects that they donate their 'extra' hours to. Warren will then choose the story that inspires him the most, donate £250 to the cause, and send over a team of 'happy helpers' to give a day's worth of their time.  

Warren says:

"I'm proud to say that our company has some great longstanding relationships with a number of national charities and organisations, including the Big Issue Foundation, Shelter and FSC UK, but we're always looking for inspirational local projects to support too.  A lot can be achieved in those spare hours we spend watching TV or tucked up in bed - and through this initiative I hope to highlight some of the great work that people are doing to support their communities."
