A refrigeration manufacturer based in Thetford donated two nearly-new professional fridge units to Cambridgeshire Army Cadet Force (ACF) for their Cadet Training Centre in Waterbeach.
Precision Refrigeration launched a promotional campaign at Christmas offering registered charities free nearly-new fridges. Their usual customer base consists primarily of the foodservice industry and bar operators.
Cambridgeshire ACF heard about the promotion, contacted Precision Refrigeration, and have now taken delivery of their two nearly-new fridges.
Major Geoffrey Hammond, Cadet Executive Officer of Cambridgeshire ACF, said: “The refrigeration equipment will enhance the kitchen area at the Cadet Training Centre no end”.
Nick Williams, Managing Director for Precision Refrigeration, explained: “It seemed a shame that these nearly-new perfectly good products were not being used.”
He added: “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.”
The Cadet Training Centre at Waterbeach accommodates up to 100 Cadets and Instructors at a time for weekend training events. The site includes sleeping quarters, classrooms, a dining hall, lounge and of course a fully equipped kitchen.
Colonel Mark Knight MBE, Cadet Commandant, expressed his gratitiude to Nick and the team at Precision. He said: “It gives a ‘warm feeling’ that kind-hearted people like yourself are keen to support us in our work with the youth of Cambridgeshire.”
