Andrews Heat for Hire continues support of successful Stay Warm, Stay Safe campaign

The winter season can be a very cold and lonely place for some of the less fortunate in our community, with the build-up to Christmas a perfect reminder of the impact a small gesture or gift can make to people in difficult situations.

Last year, we were delighted to be able to team up with the Charlton Athletic Community Trust and contribute towards their Stay Warm, Stay Safe campaign – a scheme aimed at supporting residents who may be at risk during the colder months.

The initiative is run on behalf of the Royal Borough of Greenwich and provides care to people over 60, young or vulnerable people or anyone having difficulties paying winter fuel bills.

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.

Andrews Air Conditioning were delighted to sponsor the Charlton Athletic Community Trust’s charity gig for a second successive year– this time headlined by Manchester pop rock group Rixton. The event was staged in Greenwich and attended by a near sell-out crowd, as thousands flocked to the Indigo at the O2 in spite of city-wide Tube strikes.

Popular acts Zuriel and Autumn Sharif preceded the main act before Rixton were introduced by radio presenter Dave Berry.

The lucky winners of our various competitions had the chance to meet the musicians as well as a number of Charlton players who also turned up on the night. All were very happy to mingle with guests and pose for photographs in the VIP lounge – with our paper fans once again getting in on the act!

Young apprentice benefits from Give Youth a Chance scheme

When the Charlton Athletic Community Trust launched a new Give Youth a Chance initiative, we at Andrews Sykes were among the first companies to pledge our support to the scheme.

And a month after getting off the ground, the programme has already paid dividends as one local teenager excitedly recalls.

19-year-old Zeppelin Machen-Smith was one of thousands of young people struggling to find work until he was presented with the opportunity to do a pump engineering apprenticeship at our Charlton base.

He recalled: “I was with my family and my uncles were peering behind the door and my Nan and Granddad were jumping up and down as well! There was a lot of hugging and (I was) very happy throughout the day.
