Children at St Lukes after school club have received an early Christmas present from local business Glen Dimplex Home Appliances.
When their old appliance stopped working, Glen Dimplex Home Appliances (GDHA) generously donated a new LEC fridge freezer to staff and children at the club.
Christine Lankertis, of St Luke’s explains: “To ensure we supply our children with high quality food we need to keep the food fresh. When the fridge freezer broke we called Knowsley Council’s business support team for help’
The After School Club at St Luke’s is an important facility for staff who work at nearby Whiston Hospital and for other local working families.
St Luke’s were not able to access any grants but due to the urgent nature of their request, Knowsley Council’s business team went out of their way to help and approached GDHA to see if a donation was possible.
‘We are really grateful to both Glen Dimplex Home Appliances and Knowsley Council for their support. The money saved on this will helps us to provide further support to families to enable the children to join other children on school trips and out of school activities.’ said Christine.
St Lukes After school club can be contacted on 0151 477 8580.
Dan Connell of Glen Dimplex Home Appliances was on hand to present the new LEC fridge freezer to St Lukes after school club at the Shaw Lane School in Whiston.
