Peterborough based Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, parent company to KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Hotpoint and Indesit, has extended its support to a charity that provides specialist palliative care and support to people with neurological conditions.

As well as supporting Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice by raising vital funds through its Summer Series, Whirlpool UK has donated a large number of appliances to Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice in Cheltenham and to four of Sue Ryder’s Neurological Care Centres.

Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited has supported Thorpe Hall Hospice for many years and employees at the Peterborough HQ were due to participate in the Peterborough Dragon Boat Festival 2020, which was due to take place in June. The 2020 event was unfortunately cancelled due to coronavirus, however Whirlpool still donated its sponsorship fees to Thorpe Hall Hospice, providing much needed financial assistance during the coronavirus pandemic.

Since its establishment over 65 years ago, Sue Ryder’s committed team of doctors, nurses and carers have provided palliative and neurological care living with life-limiting conditions. The charity further supports the family members of patients, as well as those experiencing the loss of a loved one.

Ian Moverley, Public Affairs Director, Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited says: “We are delighted to continue supporting Sue Ryder, a charity that works tirelessly to support some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”

Tori Ablard, Head of Hospice Fundraising, Thorpe Hall Hospice says: “Now more than ever we need the support of our local community, and we are so grateful to Whirlpool UK employees for supporting Thorpe Hall Hospice. This support will help us to continue to be there for our patients when it matters most.”
