COVID-19 update: Cleaning team lends hand to Manchester food charity

North West based Under Pressure Cleaning is supporting Greater Manchester charity The Bread and Butter Thing (TBBT) by volunteering its expert cleaning services to fully clean, wash and disinfect the charity’s fleet of seven food refrigeration vehicles which are used to deliver food parcels to people on low income.

Under Pressure Cleaning managing partner, Peter Heseltine, said: “The impact of the COVID-19 crisis has hit everyone hard, so just imagine how difficult it is now for those people who needed the help of The Bread and Butter Thing before the pandemic. The charity delivers food to families who are struggling to afford everyday basics through a fleet of refrigerated sprinter vans designed to transport food products. These vehicles are what people’s food is being transported in, so we want to help them and the charity by making sure they are properly cleaned and disinfected, especially when there is a global health crisis taking place.”

TBBT operations manager, Rachel Reid-Fernandez, said: “What a fantastic job the guys have done. We must ensure our vans are clean and safe and they have achieved this for us. It is brilliant that they have given up their own time and energy to help us. We hope that we can continue to work with Under Pressure as the results are just what we need to transport our food safely to our members.”
