3rings, is an electronic plug device, designed by two entrepreneurs that allows families to make sure their loved ones are doing ok. The 3rings plug, which you can attach to many home electrical devices, comes with a clever bit of technology that will alert concerned family members if their relative hasn’t turned on the particular electronic device, the 3rings plug is attached to.

Anthony Temperton, founder of KAT Communications explained: “The 3rings product is a fantastic bit of technology that because we were so impressed with, we wanted to show a way that we cared about the product and through the sales of 3rings plugs, we were able to give something back to a charity that was close to our hearts at KAT Communications.

“Imagine that your Grandma always makes a cup of tea, like clockwork, every morning, between 9-10.30am, but then one day that cup of tea was never made, how would you know if your grandma was ok?. The 3rings technology alerts loved ones on an app to say that the kettle, which the 3rings plug is connected to, hasn’t been turned on.

“Having this technology in your loved ones home gives you peace of mind, and your elderly relative will know that if anything does go wrong, a concerned family member will not be too far away.”

Telecoms specialists, KAT Communications, have agreed that with each 3rings product sold via Westfield Health, KAT will give £5 to the Pride of the Isle, a charity set up in memory of Alexander Strong, a young boy from the Isle of Axholme in Lincolnshire, who sadly died from Neuroblastoma cancer at just 7 years old in 2013. The Pride of the Isle charity now works extremely hard fundraising to help support and make memories for children and adults who are terminally ill, as well as helping fund further community projects.

The launch of the #KATCARES campaign has received backing from 3rings inventor, Stephen Purdham and has already proved extremely popular with businesses around the region, with many being pictured holding a photo frame helping share the #KATCARES hashtag.

Stephen said: ““We fully support the KATCARES campaign and are very happy KAT Communications is behind our 3rings product, the technology used, and supporting such a great charity. Pride of the Isle, is an incredible charity who inspirationally help children, families and carers. If product sales can help the team achieve great things then we truly hope this campaign is a hugely successful one.”

Leesa Sharpe of Pride of the Isle said: “We are very excited and to be linking up with KAT Communications and we absolutely love the KATCARES Campaign. Fundraising through this particular campaign will go towards making memories for children and adults with cancer and helping children with disabilities to make a better quality of life.”

Anthony concluded: “We have been delighted with the response from the campaign already, especially through the social media channels, as many businesses, including Bodhi PR, Zenza, Attract, Abacus Funding, Mini Kicks and RKS Print. Everyone seems to want to help promote this campaign and we can’t thank you enough.
