We would just like to show our support to the BBC's Children in Need by giving all proceeds for a Powrtouch to the charity from the following Ebay auction:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8015994882
The Powrtouch supplied, is any model that fits your particular caravan. The auction includes fitting and shipping and our famous 5 year no-quibble guarantee.

Keep the bidding flowing as all proceeds are given to this well deserved children's charity.

I thought that commercial companies were no allowed to advertise or is this case of climbing on the bandwagon? If they want to help why do they have to tell every one. If you are genuine you would just do it anyway like numeous other companies and not make a song and dance about it. I didn't notice them saying anything about donating to the British Legion or other organisations.

Why would they need to advertise here? do a search on Powrtouch and you will see that many people on this site do that for them.

As for jumping on the bandwagon! who cares? they are raising money for a charity, so far the bid is

If Powertouch had not mentioned this matter here - or anywhere else for that matter - how would potential bidders know what was happening ?

I just can't understand all the fuss..someone helped raise money for a worthy cause,why do we feel the need to question that.

If we were all as generous,think what could be done..........

Nothing against any one raising money for charity, but if they were such a people orientated company surely they could have just said that there is a motor mover available for bidding and asked the moderator to post it. I am sorry but I am very sceptical of companies that jump on the bandwagon for what appears to be a free plug. Yes it is nice that some money was raised for CIN but as I said that are also many other deserving organisations out there. This is my view and I am not disagreeing with your views as I regard mine as an observation.

Ian,

I can see your point but do not feel that the company in question used the post as a free plug,they gave only the information required.

They used the most obvious place to let people know,only caravanners would be interested in this product.

I also agree that there are lots of other organisations who could benefit from the funds raised but can't think of one which has such a high profile and people tend to bid for the spirit of such an event and not bother so much the actual true value of the goods.

To be fair the company had to choose one ,they could'nt give away 5,10 units or whatever.

There is nothing worse than doing something good and then being critised for it..

I might add I have no connection with the company and do not own a motor mover but my glass is always half full....

Powertouch do not need to jump on any band wagon the product and the customer service is second to non which is a tall order in this day and age. We are very very happy customers of Powertouch and would recommend the product to anybody who requested the information. well done to them for thinking that rather than just make a donation they could allow someone to bid for a bargain, one camper with a mover one charity with a donation, two winners. You see Richard, by jumping on the bandwagon you have created more advertising for Powertouch than they could ever do themselves. well done.

Guess I am more narked at the moderators who changes the rules as they go along. I put a posting about heating which had the manufacturer's name. This was removed fair enough as I did not comply with the T & Cs of thsi site. I then posted the same post but with all the names removed and that was removed also. However the moderator then saw fit to allow a commercial company to post. Nothing against Powrtouch or the actual posting as I had one of their movers but why the double standards by the moderators? Perhaps the moderatior can respond to this!

Doesn't the company deserve a mention? Everyone that donated large amounts on cin got their company name a mention, ie barclays, nat west ect whats different here.

Well done powrtouch a fine gesture and if it gets you deserved exposure too then so be it.

"moderators who change the rules as they go along"

Sorry if I've done something to upset you. I can't remember the specific post that was removed, but if I did it was to protect you (and Haymarket) from potential legal action.

As for the second removal, I would not have deleted a post in its entirity - only the company names, so not guilty.

There are 200-300 new posts for me to check every morning, and I try to scan them carefully, but despite rumours I am only human and make mistakes. If I do, point them out to me, and if I'm in the wrong I'll apologise.

Apology accepted. Keep up the good work anyway as it must be tiresome job.
