Charitable Support from Tidyco
David Hithersay, Climate Control Director for Tidyco with DCHC Chairman, Bill Tomlinson
Derby-based Tidyco, a trusted supplier of HVAC design, supply, installation and planned maintenance has recently completed an install job for the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre.

Located in Skegness, the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre provides holidays for children from Derbyshire whose lives are such that they will benefit from a change to and respite from their daily lives.

Children nominated come from both loving, caring homes and also homes where the impact of financial hardship, deprivation or abuse has created a situation where stress is all too common with few comforts

The kitchen facilities within the holiday centre were suffering from overheating and required a cooling solution fit for the needs of the on-site chef.

David Hithersay, Climate Control Divisional Director for Tidyco explains further; “The charity provides a valuable service for less fortunate children throughout the county and it is imperative for staff and volunteers to be provided with a comfortable working environment.

Having conducted a survey of the kitchen facility, it became clear that the food preparation area would greatly benefit from a sophisticated cooling solution. Obviously, this was a non-chargeable job so as to support the charity as best as the business could and as such, a reconditioned air conditioning asset was installed within the premises.

A special mention should also be given to Dave Moll of the local TF Solutions branch for kindly donating all necessary parts so as to successfully complete the installation.”

Bill Tomlinson, Chairman for Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre summarises; “ On behalf of the charity, I extend my sincere thanks for the recent successful installation of the air conditioning in our Holiday Centre kitchen in Skegness. I offer heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this contribution possible, in particular the Tidyco team and unit manufacturers.

The chef, Simon, is particularly delighted with a longed-for solution to an overheated kitchen and has expressed his delight. The children who holiday at the centre and the DCHC team will also thank you for your kind support of the charity.”

During 2017, the Derbyshire Children’s Holiday Centre has expanded the number of holidays provided from 450 to 660 disadvantaged children.
