In the lead up to Christmas, colleagues of the Peterborough-based Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited donated items to three local initiatives: the Peterborough Christmas Shoebox Appeal, Peterborough Soup Kitchen and Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.
Staff donated over 350 shoeboxes containing toiletries, books, tinned food, clothes and biscuits to support elderly people living in sheltered accommodation in the community. They also donated a number of food items, including tins and jars, tea and coffee, biscuits, chocolate and sweets, to the Peterborough Soup Kitchen, as well as Christmas selection boxes to the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice in Peterborough.
Ian Moverley, UK Corporate Reputation and Public Affairs Director, said: “Whirlpool UK is committed to supporting the charities and local initiatives that work tirelessly for our community. Proving that Christmas is a time for giving, our colleagues were keen to get involved, generously donating a number of items to give something back to the disadvantaged living in our local area, as well as to the family members of those receiving life-prolonging treatment.”
