Carbon Monoxide Detector Offer
Oxford University has negotiated a special price on carbon monoxide detectors for University members. The Honeywell H450EN alarm is available to members of the University for just £15 – half the usual price, including delivery.
Carbon monoxide is invisible and has no smell. Even new boilers can be susceptible to leaks. Please take this opportunity to protect yourself and your family. You could also get a detector delivered to a family member or friend elsewhere.
To order a detector, phone SF Distribution on 01202 708643, quoting the reference OX1. Alternatively, send a cheque for £15 made payable to 'SF Distribution' (with a covering letter quoting the reference OX1 and giving the address you want the detector delivered to) to: SF Distribution, 296 Sandbanks Road, Poole BH14 8HX.
