Winter is set to be warmer for one Christchurch family, thanks to a generous donation from Gavin Lowe Energy.
Kimberley Swaney and her family, which includes Noah and Elijah who both have CF, were this year’s recipient of a heat pump installed in their home on 14 May.
“Gavin Lowe Energy has been amazing and we’re so grateful for the gift of warmth and good health for our family," Kimberly says.
“Being able to set a timer for the heat pump to come on in the morning before the children get up for school is fantastic,” she says.
CFNZ southern fieldworker Sue Lovelock, Christchurch chairperson Melissa Skene and Kimberley met Mike Little, Business Development Manager of Gavin Lowe Energy at Kimberley’s house to formally thank them for their donation.
Mike talked about the challenge of the placement of the heat pump in a narrow hallway ceiling to heat the three bedrooms and choosing the right heat pump to do the job.
“It’s been so good to be able to help a family who is affected by cystic fibrosis,” Mike says.
A huge thank you to Mike and the team at Gavin Lowe Energy who has donated a heat pump to a Canterbury family with CF for the past three years. Your donation and support are a great example of how businesses can really make a difference to families in our CF community.
