Winter can be a particularly daunting time for some of our community’s most vulnerable people, with the imminent soaring of energy prices likely to make the season even more challenging going forward.
That’s why we are proud to once again be working alongside the Charlton Athletic Community Trust to positively influence the lives of those who desperately require assistance.
Commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the annual Stay Warm Stay Safe campaign has one primary objective – to help the less fortunate members of society by heating their homes while cold weather persists.
To assist with the programme’s implementation, we have supplied the Trust with 50 electric heaters which will provide a safe, cost-effective and reliable source of warmth.
Deb Browne, Head of Health Improvement at CACT, said: “The Royal Borough of Greenwich Public Health and Wellbeing Team have commissioned CACT to support the Stay Warm Stay Safe programme, which aids residents who are feeling cold in their homes.
“This year, with the rising costs of fuel, it’s more important than ever that we arm ourselves with the right tools to support our residents during the winter months.
“We are therefore delighted to purchase 50 heaters from Andrews, who have kindly agreed to store half of the units until they are required for distribution.”
Fittingly, the remaining heaters will be stored at our flagship depot in Charlton – located at the heart of the very community we are so pleased to serve.
David Mahon, UK Operations Director, explained: “It is a privilege to play our part in supporting this commendable initiative, with no cause more worthy than one aimed at improving the wellbeing of those on our doorstep who are most in need.”
“We have been keenly involved with the Stay Warm, Stay Safe project for many years now and are only too happy to endorse the message behind it.”
