Silentnight – 20% Off

Having a good night’s sleep is really important for our physical, mental and emotional health but many of us are regularly not achieving the recommended minimum of eight hours sleep a night.

A lack of sleep has been proven to exacerbate the symptoms of some serious chronic bladder and bowel diseases. In Crohn’s Disease, a lack of sleep has proven to increase the risk of septicaemia and leave patients at a greater risk of disease relapse.

If you are suffering from bladder or bowel incontinence, a fear of an accident can cause sleepless nights but by having the right protection on your bed will help you to sleep more soundly. We have partnered up with Silentnight to be able to offer you 20% off beds, mattresses, mattress protectors and toppers. To receive this great discount simply visit the Silentnight webshop and use the code B&BC20 at the checkout.
