Professional refrigeration manufacturer, Precision Refrigeration, launched a promotional campaign at Christmas offering registered charities free ‘nearly new’ fridges.
The Army Cadet Force (ACF) at Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire heard about the promotion, contacted Precision Refrigeration, and have taken delivery of two ‘nearly new’ models. The refrigerated equipment will help kit out the kitchen area on site at the Cadet Training Centre Waterbeach.
Precision MD Nick Williams said: “It seemed a shame that these ‘nearly new’ perfectly good products were not being used.
“They are a result of exhibition equipment, loan products or items with minor transport damage that were sitting in our warehouse. I have decided to give this stock away to registered charities who are in need of extra equipment in a kitchen area, but only whilst stocks last.”
Cambridgeshire ACF develops young people physically, as well as improving their self-confidence, teamwork, friendship and leadership skills. The multi-purpose Centre at Waterbeach provides office accommodation for some of the full-time support staff. There is also a weekend training centre that houses 100 cadets and instructors with classrooms, a dining hall and combined adult mess.
Major Hammond, cadet executive officer, commented: “The donation of these two fridges will enhance the ACF welfare facility no end.”
While Colonel Mark Knight MBE, cadet commandant, added: “It gives a ‘warm feeling’ that kind-hearted people like yourself are keen to support us in our work with the Youth of Cambridgeshire. It makes it worthwhile us knowing this.”
