We teamed up with an England Lioness to warm a local community.
England Lioness Lauren Hemp joined us as we donated a brand-new boiler and put on an exclusive coaching session for a local Lancashire-based football club and its young players, as part of our ‘Warming Your Community’ initiative.
Our initiative which launched in July 2021, allows us to give back to those who make a positive difference to their community, with local organisations nominated to receive the support.
Coppull United F.C, has the last functioning football pitch in the surrounding area, and is a vital hub for many aspiring footballers in the local community. But with their existing boiler beyond repair, and energy costs ever rising, the club could not afford a suitable replacement meaning that the winter months could be tough for the local players.
Through our ‘Warming Your Community’ initiative, however, the club was able to secure these essential upgrades, and Worcester Accredited Installer Mark Heyes from Heyes Plumbing and Heating nominated the club and installed the donated boiler free of charge.
We also asked Lauren Hemp to lead a day of training with young footballers from the local community. Lauren, who’s appearance was a total surprise to the aspiring young footballers, shared exactly how important her own club was to her in her youth. She notes; “It is important having places like Coppull United. When I was younger, I never realised my dreams could become a reality. There can always be talent in unexpected places, and we need to try and keep these grassroot spaces where people can express themselves and start their journey as a footballer, like I did.
Mark Heyes, the installer and also a passionate volunteer at the club, was also central to the success of the day. He commented; “I’m delighted to have been able to support the club even more. The new, efficient boiler will not only keep the club members warm but also help keep running costs down.”
Ann Smith, Coppull United F.C. Treasurer, shared this sentiment, stating: “We can’t thank Worcester Bosch and Lauren enough. The new system will keep everybody warm in winter. We’re just so grateful for it because we couldn’t afford to do it alone.”

We have recently conducted some research and have identified the top 20 sounds which make up the soundscape of a household in the UK, whilst debunking myths around ‘noisy’ heat pump technology.
The Sustainable Homes and Buildings Coalition, made up of Worcester Bosch, NatWest, British Gas and Citizens Advice has upgraded nine properties across the UK in the Home Improvement Pilot.
As a part of our Warming Your Community initiative, we have donated a brand-new boiler to Mayfield Garden Centre, with local installer Roost Heating donating their time to fit the new system.
