AO donates over 90 new fridges to FareShare
Online electricals retailer AO has donated 96 new fridges to food redistribution charity FareShare.
The move will help charities and community groups to store fresh produce for people in need and will enable FareShare to increase the volume of food it accepts from its food industry partners.
The under-the-counter fridges were delivered to FareShare regional centres in Kent, East Anglia and Thames Valley last week, before being distributed to charity partners in the areas.
Due to changes to energy labelling, the fridges would otherwise have been recycled at AO’s recycling plant, despite being fully functional.
John Roberts, AO founder and chief executive, said: “FareShare does vital work getting food to people who need it and I’m pleased AO has been able to play a small part in helping foodbanks offer fresh food. We’re all about making decisions that make our mums proud, so huge thanks to everyone who has done that and made this donation happen.”
