Keeping A Retirement Home Cosy

Heater Hire for SGBI

When the boiler broke down at Queen Mary House, a purpose-built retirement home for women administered by the Schoolmistresses & Governesses Benevolent Institution, Andrews Sykes responded with a rapid heater hire solution comprising of 20 x 2kW convector heaters.

The SGBI is a charity founded in 1843 and incorporated by Royal Charter. The Home provides spacious accommodation in pleasant surroundings. Originally restricted to retired schoolmistresses and governesses, it now offers accommodation to a wider range of like-minded applicants including those requiring short-term respite care.
