WE ARE SUPPORTING THE NHS

At Hireacamera, we are fortunate to work with and support many creative businesses and individuals. During this time, we have been impressed by the positivity and determination of our customers and their ability to continually innovate and find solutions to the many challenges they are facing.

We want to support you now; to help you continue to engage, create and be as productive as possible throughout this period. Therefore, we are paying 50% of delivery and collection costs* for all orders placed during lockdown.

We also want to do our bit to help and give something back to those working tirelessly on the front line, so we are donating 10% of all hire fees for the duration of the lockdown to two NHS charities – our local hospitals (Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells Hospitals) and the national membership organisation for NHS Charities.

* Applies to standard pre-12pm delivery and all-day collection service.
