Catering equipment manufacturer, Hobart Warewashing, is supporting the work of The Connection at St Martin’s homeless-rehabilitation centre by donating one of its Planetary Mixers to the centre’s kitchen.
The company has recognised The Connection’s work, which helps over 3,000 homeless people in central London every year re-build their lives away from the streets. This includes a café serving up affordable and nutritious food, as well as skills training both inside and out of the kitchen.
Hobart’s Planetary Mixer will provide The Connection’s catering staff with what should be an easy to use solution, as well as being used for training – helping to give users the best shot at future employment.
Catering manager at The Connection, Richard Partridge, said: “We’re really grateful to Hobart for donating the mixer. Our kitchen makes food for over 150 homeless people a day, so it’s vital we have equipment which can do the job properly.
“A chef always loves a new gadget, and we’ll have fun with it! It’ll also be a training tool, and clients will learn how to use it when they do kitchen volunteering placements. It’ll be enjoyed by everyone here as well as saving precious time.”
Tim Bender, UK sales director – warewashing at Hobart UK said: “After their last one gave up on them, we’re honoured to be kitting The Connection out with a quality mixer that will stand the test of time.
“It’s an honourable programme set up to do good, and for that reason we’re delighted to be a part of helping them achieve this.”
