Whirlpool recently donated three 6th Sense Live Supreme Care washing machines to a charity auction for Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire – CPSL – Mind, as part of the manufacturer’s campaign for National Quiet Day.

The charity auction took place at Ely Golf Club for its members as well as their friends and family. CPSL Mind aims to help local people with mental health challenges receive the support they need, as well as tackling mental health-related stigma and discrimination.

“The funds raised at the auction will help us to continue to support local people in their recovery from mental health challenges,” said CPSL Mind fundraiser Zoe Doherty. “Overall, the auction raised £6,000 and we thank Whirlpool for their support and look forward to working together during the next National Quiet Day in 2019.”

Whirlpool laundry category marketing manager Tailang Bu added: “At Whirlpool, we believe it is important to support the local community and we hope the funds raised from the donation of the Whirlpool appliances can support CPSL Mind to continue to help those in need.

“Whirlpool recognises that noise has a substantial effect on a person’s wellbeing and mental health, which is why National Quiet Day is vital to raise awareness of the issue. Peace and quiet can lower stress levels and enhance your senses, which can increase your awareness of the world around you. Peace at home is so important and is why Whirlpool invests in the development of noise reduction technology in its appliances.”
