ETI supports local charity campaign to help brighten Christmas for those spending it alone
Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd, the UK’s largest digital thermometer manufacturer and exporter of electronic thermometers and temperature probes, is delighted to support local charity, Guild Care this Christmas with a donation worth £3,000.
Guild Care has been making a difference to the people of Worthing and its surrounding areas since it was first established in 1933. Today the charity runs three care homes and over 30 community services helping over 3,000 people of all ages each year. Due to Covid, the charity was forced to close its doors in March to many of these services including the popular Friendship Club. This has had a devastating impact on those effected and many in our community have never felt as lonely as they do now. ETI wanted to help those dealing with loneliness over the festive period and the money donated will help Guild Care’s Christmas campaign, “Worthing Cares” by providing gift hampers and a much needed, socially distanced doorstep chat to those facing Christmas alone.
Jason Webb, ETI Operations Director commented: “The opportunity to work with Guild Care is always a pleasure and we have supported them for many years. From our longstanding partnership we have seen just how important the services Guild Care provide are, and this has only become more apparent during the Coronavirus pandemic. As our chosen charity, we look forward to supporting their Christmas campaign and continuing our collaboration into the New Year”.
Nicki Freeman, Head of Community Services at Guild Care said “We are so grateful to ETI for this amazing donation. Their generosity will enable us to deliver hampers to 60 older people who will be on their own on Christmas day. With ETI’s help we can bring Christmas cheer and comfort to some of the most vulnerable people in Worthing. To see a friendly face, and know that someone is thinking of them at Christmas, will mean so much”.
