Smeg recently partnered with charity Oxfordshire Mind to hold a Christmas campaign at its Abingdon centre, as well as supplying the Wellbeing Hub with a “much-needed” multi-cavity range cooker with induction hob top to cook Christmas lunches for its residents.

Smeg ambassador and former Welsh rugby player Scott Quinnell joined Smeg and a team of army volunteers at Oxfordshire Mind’s Abingdon Hub to help serve more than 60 Christmas lunches to local residents.

“As a company we are incredibly passionate about giving back to the local community; we very much consider ourselves a family and this remains a core part of our ethos,” said Smeg UK managing director Mike Giddings.

“We feel privileged to be working with a charity performing such outstanding work as Mind on its Christmas dinner appeal. We simply had to help when we heard serving dinner for 60 rested on it,” he added.

Oxfordshire Mind CEO Dan Knowles said: “Every year the Abingdon Wellbeing Hub hosts a Christmas dinner for the local community. This brings together our partners, staff, service users, volunteers and peer supporters.

“We are so grateful to have Smeg, our lead charity partner, providing state of the art cooking appliances. This support has allowed the Abingdon Wellbeing Hub to continue its tradition of cooking this community-focused lunch around the festive period.”
