A Huddersfield flooring retailer is supporting a children’s hospice with its renovation and refurbishment project.
Flooring Superstore, which is based on the Castlegate Retail Park, has donated over £500 worth of laminate flooring to the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice in Fell Greave Road, Huddersfield.
The flooring is being used as part of the refurbishment of the charity’s purpose-built building, Russell House, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2021.
It is being fitted in the hospice’s conservatory, which is currently carpeted.
Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice Regional Fundraiser Gemma Redford said: “In 2021, we started work on the renovation and refurbishment of Russell House to improve the facilities for children with life-shortening conditions and their families.
“This includes the creation of an amazing cinema room, new garden spaces and decorating projects to name but a few.
“The hospice costs £4 million a year to run and due to the pandemic, for understandable reasons, it has been even more difficult to raise money and that is why generous donations like the one made by Flooring Superstore are so appreciated.
“Because it’s a high footfall area, installing the water-resistant laminate in the conservatory will further enhance this space and we would like to thank Flooring Superstore for their support.”
Flooring Superstore Regional Manager Greig Anderson said: “Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice is a special charity doing incredible work helping children and their families.
“This is the first charity we have supported since launching our store in Huddersfield in spring 2021 and we couldn’t have a picked a more suitable one.
“It is a perfect example of why we established our corporate social responsibility programme, to say thank you and to give something back to the town.”
