In response to the current climate, this year EcoCooling decided to make a charitable donation to Bury St Edmunds based foodbank charity, Gatehouse instead of giving its usual Christmas gifts.

Gatehouse is an independent charity that works with the vulnerable throughout East Anglia and has played an invaluable role in supporting the local community throughout the pandemic. The charity’s foodbank and living well in later life project have been particularly important through the last 12 months, ensuring families have enough food and that elderly have access to mindfulness courses that help with memory and reducing anxiety.

EcoCooling’s donation of £200 is enough to provide a family with twenty nutritious food parcels for approximately three days or ten days of Day Service for an older person with dementia, including a nutritious meal.

Throughout the coming year, EcoCooling will continue to support local charities such as Gatehouse in recognition of the vital role these organisations play in the community.
