InSinkErator has partnered with New Hope, an organisation that helps individuals who are homeless, or vulnerably housed in Watford, Hertfordshire. New Hope provides short-term accommodation services and support to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in Watford. The charity has three properties dedicated to supporting individuals recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
To support those staying at the property during a tough period in their lives, InSinkErator has donated two 4N1 Touch taps to New Hope House, a 10-bedded property that provides accommodation for those on a 30-day detox period. InSinkErator has also provided a 4N1 Touch tap to The Manse, a four-bedded house, which offers shelter for those who have completed the detox period and are in the second stage of their recovery. By providing specialist kitchen taps to New Hope, InSinkErator is supporting the charity to reach its sustainability targets by offering an alternative to a kettle that can minimise water waste, save energy and reduce single-use plastic waste.
In addition, once a month, groups of employees at InSinkErator are volunteering to cook and serve breakfast at the Haven, New Hope’s drop-in support and advice centre. The company's employees also donated winter clothing to New Hope this autumn, and a further £500 was donated by InSinkErator to provide additional essentials.
Anne Kaarlela, marketing communications and customer service manager, Europe, InSinkErator, said: “We are pleased to be able to support the local community and those in need by partnering with New Hope, who does some amazing work. This partnership not only gives the opportunity for the business to support New Hope with donations, but our employees can be involved too. We hope the donated products will provide comfort for those staying at New Hope House, and The Manse, during a difficult time as well as support New Hope with its sustainability goals.”
