UK: Manchester-based contractor Coolair Equipment has donated new air conditioning systems to a local charity for disadvantaged youngsters.

The company teamed up with a long-standing property maintenance partner, Integral UK, to answer a call for help to support a youth centre run by the Cathie Stankevitch Foundation in Widnes.

The air conditioning units for the building, which includes an office and a function room, will enable around 100 local disadvantaged children to make new friends, enjoy physical activities and learn new skills in comfort all year round.

Coolair fitted two Mitsubishi Electric split systems to heat and cool both the office and the function room as required. Integral provided the power supplies for both systems.
