When Gary Banner (PJH’s Trade Counter Manager, Cannock) became aware of a Mauritian family of six, in Home Office care, struggling without an electric oven, or other essential white goods, he swiftly got together with other PJH staff to secure and donate these much-needed appliances.
The family arrived in the UK and have recently been relocated in Wolverhampton, but whilst their legal paperwork is being progressed their status means they cannot work or earn any money to provide for the basic home essentials such as cooker, fridge or washing machine, managing only with a microwave.
The PJH Cannock team quickly jumped into action to source a fridge freezer and washing machine, but a cooker eluded them until PJH’s Alistair Povey-Pugh (PJH’s Returns Team Leader), contacted one of its suppliers, Neil Davies from Glenn Dimplex who, recognising this worthy cause kindly donated an electric oven.
Delivery and fitting of the appliances were organised by PJH to ensure the family was up and running quickly and safely, but more importantly, the appliances vastly improved the standard of living of this family with some of the products we take for granted.
