Marquis Grants 700th Wish With An ATV Swim Spa At approximately 18 months old, Chase Fekete was diagnosed with Mowat Wilson Syndrome, which affects his ability to learn and speak as well as impair physical functions. Chase didn’t walk until he was two and a half years old and even now doesn’t have a lot of strength in his legs making it difficult to walk. There is one place where Chase can play with his brother, Jake, without all of the restrictions from his illness – his very own Marquis Aquatic Training Vessel (ATV) swim spa. Chase’s wish marks the 700th wish Marquis has helped to grant through its partnership with Make-A-Wish. “Marquis is making a difference in Chase’s life by helping to grant his spa wish,” said Cheryl Unger, Director of Program Services of
Make-A-Wish Metro New York and Western New York. “This will help Chase and his family enjoy hours and hours of quality time together at home.” “It’s incredibly rewarding that through our hot tubs and swim spas, we are able to add some happiness and improve the well-being of so many children with life-threatening medical conditions,” said John Schrenk, President of Marquis. The ATV-17 Sport is a relatively new addition to the Marquis product line and has been a very popular wish request in the last few years. The ATV swim spa allows children to be mobile and interact at eye level with their families.

Hot Tubs Play Their Part In Domestic Holidays Booking Surge Hoseasons have offered holidays and lodges with hot tubs for a number of years now and it seems their inclusion has helped the domestic holidays specialist see a surge in bookings at the start of the year. The operator saw impressive year-onyear increases with its hot tub lodges ahead by 19%. Hoseasons said it believed consumer concerns over currency fluctuations and the economic impact of BREXIT, combined with the addition of more high-quality lodges with hot tubs as contributing to the impressive rise in bookings. Managing Director Simon Altham said customers were “determined” to have a holiday to look forward to during what could prove to be a difficult year. “Everybody knows that 2017 is shaping up to be a year of uncertainty, but the clear trend for us has been people moving early to guarantee
their getaway and take advantage of some great value deals,” he said. “Hoseason’s new year promotions combined with its commitment to innovation was also a strong factor to the operator’s sales surge, Altham added. “We’ve invested heavily in technology, infrastructure and people over the last 12 months to ensure that we’re able to offer our customers a hassle-free, quick and easy booking experience across all devices, through our contact centre or through one of our high street partners.” From luxury lodges nestled deep in forest glades, to cliff top log cabins with sweeping sea views, the company offers over 2,800 hot tubs in diverse destinations around the UK. Booking a hot tub holiday couldn’t be simpler thanks to a dedicated hot tub website which also includes the top rated destinations as voted for by holidaymakers.
