Warmth in winter is vital for patients with terminal illnesses.
Mindful of this, Hamworthy Heating has donated two new high efficiency boilers to Poole’s Forest Holme.
The hospice is being refurbished and needed to replace 20-year-old boilers.
Hannah Parsons, events and corporate fundraiser at Forest Holme Hospice, said: “We are so grateful to Hamworthy Heating for the new boilers. They help to provide a cosy and comfortable environment for all our patients being looked after within the hospice.
“As a charity, we work very hard to ensure every penny donated to us counts and the new boilers are far more efficient than our old ones, making it much more economical for the hospice to use. We are quite simply delighted with them, especially as this bad spell of weather looks set to be around for some time yet.”
Hamworthy Heating, which specialises in providing energy efficient heating solutions for organisations across the UK, supplied the new Purewell VariHeat cast iron high efficiency 65kW boilers after choosing Forest Holme as its charity of the year.
Valued at £8,500, the boilers are the latest model from a line of cast iron boilers Hamworthy Heating have supplied to NHS hospitals, schools, hotels and offices.
Exceeding the minimum seasonal efficiency requirements for Building Regulations Part L, the boilers also have superior control capability to accurately match the heating load of the Hospice.
Hamworthy Heating technical director, Bob Walsh, remarked: “The whole team at Forest Holme work so hard to provide a good environment for terminally ill patients, so it made sense for us to provide support using the expertise we have in our field.”
