A testimonial and how you can support the Alice Charity

September 2020

It is always fantastic to receive a recommendation and this testimonial from Steph Talbot, founder and Chief Executive at the Alice Charity is fantastic.

Alice Charity, is a wonderful organisation based in North Staffordshire.

Below the testimonial, you will find further information on the charity and how you can help them.

Steph Talbot said:

“I recently heard Lizzie Ward, from SAS Water, tell a BNI meeting about the risk of legionella bacteria spreading through water systems in the workplace.

Lizzie spoke about her concerns of offices reopening after the Covid-19 lockdown, often having been unused for several months, and the subsequent risks of legionella.

I was so impressed by Lizzie’s passion and professionalism that I asked her to arrange to carry out a water inspection and testing at our Alice Charity offices before we reopened them. I arranged a subsequent meeting  with Lizzie and she fully explained best practice in respect of water management in commercial premises and the accompanying landlord’s obligations.

I shared this our landlord who was so impressed that he advised SAS Water that he would not only cover the cost of the inspection that I had requested, but to extend the inspection to the full building – a winner 😊

The SAS Water team came on site to do the inspection and were professional, courteous, almost unnoticeable. The full report was issued a week or so later, which was extremely comprehensive and reassuring. As employers, we have a moral as well as legal obligation to keep our staff safe, and I strongly recommend that you engage SAS Water to assist you in this daunting task. Thank you to Lizzie and her team for keeping the Alice charity safe and providing peace of mind.”

Alice Charity was founded by Steph and her daughter, Emily Petts, to support families in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme. It has developed a series of useful activities and offers practical support for vulnerable families in the area. This can involve meet-ups, support to access household items, practical help for young mums, and Alice’s People’s Pantry, providing food, baby products and toilets for families in need.
