A charity that helps disabled and terminally ill children in the UK is hoping that companies from the catering equipment and light equipment sector can give it a helping hand.
The NewLife Foundation for Disabled Children is looking to get hold of any surplus redundant utensil stocks that companies may currently hold, as these can either be recycled in a domestic environment or sold on to create funds.
“If catering equipment companies are able to donate stock that is unwanted, returned and damaged, or redundant and end of line then we can then resell or recycle in our corporate home store and raise money for the charity,” explained Allison Timmins, who is involved with the organisation. .
Timmins says the charity is able to make use of any catering products that are re-saleable or recyclable, including pots, pans, cutlery, baking ware, china and baking equipment.
She said that any catering equipment companies that can offer support would not need to do anything other than offer the surplus items for free.
“We’ll set them up on our system as donors, arrange for free collection by our carriers and take away all items that are not required or redundant — and we provide a free corporate recycling service,” she said. “We exist to make profit, which we pass onto the charity and buy equipment for disabled children. We also fund a research centre at Great Ormond Street into genetic birth defects.”
