HOT STUFF: LS1 Boiler Installation
A LONDON business owner, who once experienced homelessness has decided to help the homeless in his community by donating an entire central heating system to local charity Brixton Soup Kitchen.
Thirty-year-old Wayne Tomlinson who runs Brixton based company LS1 Boiler Installation was moved to donate the heating system, in addition to providing a Christmas eve party for the homeless in his community after his personal assistant, Nicola Pacitto came into work after volunteering at Brixton Soup Kitchen.
Nicola said: “I went to help out there, just in terms of serving food. It was freezing and when I was washing up, I realised that there wasn’t any hot water either.”
Nicola told her boss about the dire situation at Brixton Soup Kitchen and they decided to do something about it. LS1 Boiler Installation owner, Wayne Tomlinson said: “I wanted to do something practical to help, Brixton Soup Kitchen do amazing work and are inundated with donations of food, but they aren’t able to afford a new heating system so it’s really cold in there.
"I’m happy to be in a position to donate a central heating system because I’ve experienced homelessness myself and know how cold it is on the streets. Just having somewhere warm to go to and eat a meal can make all the difference.”
Brixton Soup Kitchen founder Soloman Smith said: “I’m proud to announced that LS1 Boiler Installation, based here in Brixton, is Brixton Soup Kitchen’s main sponsor and they’re going to be keeping us warm this Christmas!”
LS1’s staff are working around the clock, at what is the companies busiest time of the year, to ensure that they can unveil the state of the art, smart controlled heating system on Christmas eve, when staff will also volunteer their time by donating warm clothes and others items they have been collecting for the charity.
