The washing machine, used by Jack Harrison, Raphinha, Pablo Hernandez and Tyler Roberts in their Washing Machine Challenge, is being handed over along with a signed Leeds United shirt to Bex Wilson, Founder of Zarach, who will re-home the product with a Leeds family in need.

Arun Bhatoye, Head of Marketing at Hisense said: “The Leeds United Foundation do great things throughout the city, and we grateful to have had the opportunity to support them in their work.

“The machine was used by four excellent Premier League players during our activity, and while it is a one-off product, it’s also something that will help this family on a day-to-day basis which is the most important thing. We’re delighted to have been able to help the Foundation and Zarach find a worthy home for the product.”

John Mallalieu, CEO at Leeds United Foundation said: “The Leeds United Foundation exists to support and inspire those who live in our place. We are delighted to be able to work with both Hisense and Zarach to support a Leeds family during this most difficult of years for everyone.”

Hisense became an Official Partner of the club in November 2020, taking on sponsorship of the impressive Jack Charlton East Stand as well as a number of other commercial rights in a United at Home campaign.

Hisense said they hope to continue supporting the Leeds United Foundation and associated charities, helping more local families by supplying every day home appliances and making life easier.
