Beko believes strongly that it has a responsibility in giving back to local communities, services and charities to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Through charitable giving of our appliances, as well as fundraising, giving back to our local communities is one of our priorities.
At the beginning of April 2020, Beko plc launched their #BekoGiving initiative to show appreciation to those on the frontline of the Covid-19 crisis, as well as charities and services that support the vulnerable.
To date the initiative has seen more than 1,600 products donated to over 50 NHS hospitals, care homes and charities spanning the breadth of the country to recipients including NHS Imperial Hospital, NHS Nottingham, ambulance stations, Acorns Childrens Hospice, St Marks Hospital, Signposts and Aspire Oxford to name just a few.
We’ve supported the charity Signposts by providing over 30 appliances, helping them to develop new sheltered accommodation for homeless people in Luton.
We’ve sent the frontline staff at St Marks Hospital in Maidenhead over 30 new appliances including kettles and microwaves to help them stay refreshed while they’re working flat out.
We’ve sent Aspire, a homeless charity in Oxford, 12 large and small domestic appliances for use in preparing food parcels for homeless people in the local area.
To support the staff doing an amazing job in a difficult situation, we’ve sent NHS Nottingham City Hospital new microwaves to use in the special care ward for babies.
We’ve delivered over 50 appliances including refrigerators and washing machines to Ambulance stations around the M25 to support the hard-working crews while they are on-call.
NHS Imperial Hospital
We've supported the incredible staff at Imperial Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with new kettles, toasters and microwaves, while they care for pre-term babies and newborn babies with complex medical needs.
Acorns Children’s Hospice
We’ve sent 12 appliances to Acorns Children’s Hospice including a new dishwasher, microwaves and kettles. Acorns provide specialist care to babies, children and teenagers who have life limiting or life threatening conditions.
