Damart steps up to sponsor local walk

As Bingley prepares to celebrate its new ‘Walkers are Welcome’ status, staff at Damart are stepping into their walking boots as they prepare to take part in our very own walk.

We’ve teamed up with ‘Walkers are Welcome’, a nationwide network of communities endorsed for their amenities and hospitality for walkers, to sponsor the ‘Damart Healthy Heart Walk’, a two mile walk along the Five Rise Locks.

Linda Montgomery, HR Director, said: We are delighted to be partnering with Bingley Walkers are Welcome by sponsoring our very own walk and be one of the sponsors of the launch event.

“We have worked hard over the years to encourage healthy living for our colleagues. Through our work with Heart Research UK we have introduced a number of initiatives including healthy eating and exercise classes available to all employees. We are delighted to now be able to promote these beautiful local walks that our colleagues and local residents can get involved with.”

Walkers will come together at 10am on the 11th April when the town will celebrate the launch of its ‘Walkers are Welcome’ status which will give people the chance to join in the celebrations and take part in up to six walks suitable for a range of abilities and ages.

Ruth Langsford steals the show in her Damart dress

Those of you who are avid fans of Loose Women will have seen Ruth Langsford sporting our gorgeous draped dress on the show recently, and she certainly stole the show!

Proving she was a huge fan of this Damart style, Ruth was seen wearing the dress in teal on 3rd March, and then the same dress in pink the following week.

The flattering draped dress is perfect for an array of occasions and available in a variety of colours. As demonstrated by Ruth it can be worn at work, but equally double up as an evening or summer day outfit. The gathering of the fabric creates a flattering focal point, highlighting the waist, whilst its soft and stretchy fabric means it’s comfortable enough to wear all day long.

With the weather yo-yoing between the chilling winds of winter and warm breeze of spring this dress can be teamed with a jacket to suit all conditions, a great go to for the coming months.

Damart supports dementia patients at Bradford Teaching Hospitals

We are thrilled to have donated some much needed clothing to Bradford Teaching Hospital’s elderly care wards this New Year in a bid to keep patients warm and comfortable.

We felt it was our duty to give something back to the local community as the country faces a continuous cold weather snap.

Lead nurse for dementia, Danielle Woods, who is based at the Bradford Royal Infirmary, said “Our patients on the elderly wards often arrive at the hospital with nothing but the clothes they are wearing and some do not have families who can bring them something else to wear. Hospital gowns are not dignified and in some cases not practical or comfortable.
“Introducing everyday clothing to help patients get back into a routine and assist them in getting ready for discharge is essential, we would like to thank Damart for their generous clothing donation.”
Phil Anderson, our Marketing and E-Commerce Director said: “We’re always happy to help support the local community in which many of us live and work and this is a great way to do so. The team at the Bradford Teaching Hospital’s dementia wards work incredibly hard doing a wonderful job.”

Tour De France hopeful trials Damart’s innovative summer sports range

This year, we are sponsoring Jamie Ridehalgh, a promising young cyclist from West Yorkshire and possible yellow jersey wearer of the future. Jamie tells us what he thought of Damart’s summer sportswear range:

“Keeping cool during a summer of cycling is very difficult. Damart’s winter thermals are great for combatting the winter cold, but summer is a different time and poses far different obstacles.”

“Luckily, during these warmer months, I’ve been able to trial Damart Sport, aimed at keeping athletes like me cool in the heat. Made from Damart’s unique Ocealis fabric, the range has helped me massively in terms of flexibility, comfort, and, of course, keeping cool.”

“In the past I’ve tried all sorts of different summer sports clothing but few have done the job. However with the Damart Sport products I’ve been comfortable, allowing me to concentrate solely on my cycling, especially during the hot summer we’ve had this year! The fabric is lightweight, making it really comfortable and breathable, and I wore them again and again for training.

“The whole sports range comes in loads of different colours and styles. My personal favourite though is the short sleeved t-shirt in yellow, because as you can guess, it reminds me of the Tour De France yellow jersey!”

Andrea McLean models our pink vest in support of Breast Cancer Campaign

Loveable Loose Women presenter Andrea McLean has this year teamed up with us to model our limited edition thermal pink vest, which raises funds for Breast Cancer Campaign. With a donation from each vest sold going directly to the charity, our pink vest is the perfect way to support a worthy charity while staying snug and stylish this winter.

With its pretty lace detailing, this powder pink thermal vest is made from our famous thermal fabric, making it perfect for layering to ensure extra warmth in the colder months. A must-have for women who want to help Breast Cancer Campaign fund vital research projects, this vest will be on sale from September ahead of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

Andrea said: “It’s such a pleasure to be able to get involved in Damart’s campaign to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Campaign. This pink vest is such a great way to support the charity’s vital research into this disease, which sadly affects thousands of women in the UK every year.”

Our Marketing and E-Commerce Director Phil Anderson commented: “Over the past twelve years, Damart has raised over £167,000 for Breast Cancer Campaign and we’re so pleased that Andrea has kindly lent her support by modelling this year’s pink vest. It’s such a pleasure to be able to give something back to charity with this thermal pink vest, one of the products Damart has become famous for.”

Tara West, Corporate Account Executive at Breast Cancer Campaign said: “Andrea is a fantastic model for the Damart pink vest, and we’re so grateful for her involvement with our fundraising. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and 12,000 women sadly lose their lives to the disease each year. Research is vital in finding new and improved treatments, better diagnosing and finding a cure for breast cancer. The support shown by Damart and their customers means we are able to continue to fund our life-saving research.”

On sale from September, the pink vest is priced from £25 and come in sizes 8-24, in pink or white. A £5 donation will be made to Breast Cancer Campaign from the sale of each item.
