The team celebrated the company’s major milestone by completing a 50 mile walk in just two days, all to raise vital funds for the local Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

Fourteen colleagues from the Company braved wind and rain to cover a route from Burnley to Apperley Bridge last weekend.

The walk not only celebrated our 50th year but was also a fantastic way to help raise crucial funds for Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice, based in Oxenhope. Supporters of the walk really got behind the team and all together it has managed to raise an incredible £4k so far!

Community Fundraiser Harriet Wood said “When I heard how much the team had managed to raise through this walk I was completely blown away! This money will help us deliver the specialist care that our patients really need, in turn giving family and friends the peace of mind they need at what can be an extremely difficult time. Our sincerest thanks must go firstly to the team that completed the walk but also to the many supporters that got behind them and kindly gave what they could”.

Alistair Balmforth, MD at Refreshment Systems said “It has got to be the hardest thing that I have ever done, it took true determination and tremendous amounts of teamwork to make it through the 50 miles. I am very proud of everyone that took part and am truly touched by the amount that has been raised, for this fantastic local charity.”

Our customers are at the heart of everything that we do. If they are not achieving their goals then neither are we. Their satisfaction is very important to us and we believe that delivering what our customers want and need, means that we can form a long-lasting partnership.

We approached RSL after finding out that they could supply the Vitro coffee machines (which we wanted in our new offices). They were able to offer us the best solution to meet our needs. We are so happy with the service that we have received so far, that we are looking to use them in some of our other sites.

Virgin Money

With the help of RSL, we now have a machine that meets demand, makes a delicious drink and is easy to use. We’re delighted with the service that we are now looking to add further machines to different areas on campus.

Leeds City College

We got our machines very quickly, installed and working in no time, the aftercare is superb, we have weekly visits from our very entertaining replenishment engineer, nothing is too much trouble and we would highly recommend Refreshment Systems to any new/existing business.
