HUUB Community’s Support Raises Thousands For NHS

Derby-based triathlon kit designers HUUB has presented a two metre long cheque to University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust after customers flocked to buy their special lockdown cycle jersey and technical performance t-shirt to raise funds for NHS Charities Together.

The company designed and produced the special kit to inspire fitness enthusiasts to continue their regimes – sporting the logo ‘Better In Than Out’ and a cheerful rainbow design – in record turnaround time with great support from EMT to distribute the orders to customers.

All profits from the shirt sales and additional customer donations were pledged to NHS Charities Together and the final tally of £27,500 was presented to the local NHS Trust to forward to the charities board.

HUUB founder and owner Dean Jackson said: “The response to the new kit from the existing HUUB community and new customers across the UK has been tremendous and I am delighted with the amount we have managed to donate to NHS Charities Together. 

“At a time when everyone’s lives were turned upside down, we wanted to show that, as a business, we were determined not to stand still.  

“We therefore set about designing something for our triathlon, cycling and running communities to keep everyone’s spirits up and to raise money for the NHS.

“We had some great photos back from customers – showing how they were sporting the shirts for their daily run, cycle or power walk or for exercising at home. We were so inspired we featured the NHS Huubsters in an advertisement in 220 Triathlon magazine.

“I hope the kit will now become a positive reminder of how we all faced our individual challenges of total lockdown and better appreciate life slowly returning to the new normal in the future weeks and months.”
