Kitchen facilities upgraded thanks to generous donation

Thanks to a generous donation YMCA Lincolnshire have been able to upgrade an entire kitchen in one of it’s supported houses in Lincoln.

People HR, an Epworth based HR software company had spare appliances and parts for a kitchen that they wanted to donate. They chose to donate to a local charity from the county and contacted YMCA Lincolnshire directly.

Their donations include a new microwave, oven, hob, two sinks, a modern extractor fan and a double fridge – which is double the size of the previous fridge.

These appliances will be used by all of the eight residents of the supported accommodation in Lincoln.

The kitchen’s furnishings have also been upgraded as well with updated modern and sleek worktops, shelving and storage space.

The new kitchen also has tripled the storage space from the previous kitchen, giving our residents more room to store tinned food, cutlery and pots/pans.

The rebuild was completed by our building maintenance team working in conjunction with contractors from the local area for the fitting of the electric. This past week the work for the Kitchen has been completed after in under ten days.

Manjit Sindhar, CEO of People HR “The YMCA do some amazing work helping those in need, all of us at People HR are really pleased we were able to help out. Hopefully, we can make a real difference to the people currently living in the house where the kitchen has been fitted, and all those who might use it in future.”

The value of the donated items would have potential in the thousands of pounds and has already dramatically improved the lives of those who live in the supported accommodation.

Here is what the Kitchen was like prior:
