Whirlpool UK staff spend 200 hours volunteering in local community
The initiative was part of the international Whirlpool Community Week
Staff from Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, a parent company to KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Hotpoint and Indesit, have spent 200 hours volunteering in their local community.
The volunteering efforts, which were part of the international Whirlpool Community Week initiative, saw employees from the Peterborough based branch help three different charities: Indesit, Little Miracles and the British Heart Foundation.
Between 23rd – 27th September, staff were involved in activities such as deep cleaning kitchens, hosting dinners, maintaining gardens and working in charity shops. They also planted winter vegetables, and painted the Little Miracle charity centre to make it more welcoming for families and children with additional needs.
Ian Moverley, UK Corporate Reputation and Public Affairs Director, Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, said: “The Whirlpool Community Week gives us the opportunity to celebrate the pride we have for the community in which we work and live. Colleagues were keen to get involved and spend time volunteering in Peterborough. We would like to thank FoodCycle, the British Heart Foundation and Little Miracles for the endless work they do for our community.”
