Andrews Heat for Hire team up with CACT to keep vulnerable locals warm

With Christmas almost upon us and seasonal cold weather beginning to set in, now is the time where many people pause to consider the impact winter has on some of the more vulnerable members of society.

That’s why Andrews Heat for Hire are proud to be working alongside the Charlton Athletic Community Trust as part of the Stay Warm Stay Safe campaign – an initiative set up to help residents of the Royal Borough of Greenwich and surrounding areas keep warm.

This is a scheme that is very close to our heart, with the majority of employees at our flagship Charlton depot hailing from Greenwich and neighbouring towns.

We’re therefore very pleased to be donating a large number of new oil-filled electric radiators to the campaign’s organisers as a starting point of our involvement.

Following last month’s announcement that we would continue as Charlton’s official shirt sponsors, Managing Director Paul Wood and other company employees attended the club’s launch of next season’s away and third kits.

The event – which took place at the Sparrows Lane training ground in New Eltham – saw members of the playing staff don the new strips for the first time in front of local media, competition winners and a small group of fans.

Those lucky enough to be present at the kit unveiling had the opportunity to try their luck from the penalty spot against two of Charlton’s professional goalkeepers. Although only one Andrews Sykes representative ultimately got the job, the afternoon was greatly enjoyed by all involved!
