Zanussi has donated a washing machine to a homeless football team in Liverpool after a local resident contacted the company to let it know that his Zanussi FL811 washing machine is still “spinning strong” after more than three decades.

Frank Fairclough, pictured, 72, of Mossley Hill in Liverpool, said: “I bought my Zanussi washing machine in 1987 from Comet for £180 because it was reasonably priced and looked good. It’s amazing to think how long it has lasted me. I’ve never had to get it repaired or replace any parts.”

Zanussi has donated a new ZWF01483WH front loader washing machine to the Liverpool Football Homeless Team to celebrate Fairclough’s machine’s 31st birthday. “When we heard that Zanussi wanted to give us a washing machine, we were elated,” said the team manager Stuart Carrington.

“We don’t have a dedicated laundry room at the training grounds so my wife washes all the team’s kit after every match. We hope our machine serves us as well as Mr. Fairclough’s, so we can keep our players’ kits clean for decades to come!”

Zanussi marketing head Chris George added: “We were delighted when Mr Fairclough reached out to tell us that he has had his washing machine for 31 years and it’s still running perfectly. Here at Zanussi, we’ve been making washing machines for over 100 years. At the heart of everything we do is a promise to make robust, reliable appliances that make home life simpler.”
