Protect yourself from the silent killer - FireAngel 7 Year Life Poisonous Gas Alarm giveaway (c/d 10 September 2016)

Keeping your family safe from carbon monoxide is of paramount importance. Did you know that each year in the UK around 50 people die from the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning, and 4000 people go to A&E  with 200 hospitalised (source: Gas Safety Trust) due to the effects of the gas. That means, one person dies every week, four are treated in hospital every day, and sadly it is children who are most vulnerable.

A great number of GP practices do not even own the equipment to test for Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
CorgiHomePlan feel very passionate about it, they believe that every GP needs access to the necessary equipment to detect the fatal gas at the crucial early stages.
So, they've launched a petition to make Carbon Monoxide Near-Patient Testing Devices mandatory in every GP surgery across the UK, and they need your help.
The challenge is easy - all you are asked to do is sigh the petition here, and maybe even share this campaign with your friends to help recruit as many signatures as possible.
Please note it is a two part process - first sign the petition, then verify your support via the email sent to your Inbox.
They really need your help, it's still a long way to go till they reach 10,000 (mine was no.960).

If you want to know more facts and stats on the silent killer, visit Carbon Monoxide Alarms page.

People behind the campaign have kindly offered a giveaway prize my blog readers. One lucky winner will receive a FireAngel 7 Year Life Poisonous Gas Alarm, Model Co-9X.


T&Cs:

Signing the petition is not a condition of entry into the giveaway, but CorgiHomePlan who provided the prize will surely appreciate your support. And it will take just a minute of your time.

The giveaway is open to the UK residents only.
To be in with a chance of winning, please ebter via the Rafflecopter form.
If you are leaving a comment as Anon, make sure there is your name or username so that I can get in touch with you. If you have a Twitter name, that's the easiest way to contact you if you win.
The winner will be selected by Rafflecopter. I will contact the winner regarding their address details after the closing date. If they do not reply within 28 days, the prize will be allocated to another person.
The giveaway will close on 10 September 2016 (midnight).

Good luck!
