Corporate Member Designer Contracts – the UK’s largest flooring contractor – has supported one of the country’s leading children’s charities, ChildLine, by sponsoring its services for one day. (3rd December 2018.)
The leading counselling service charity, provided by the NSPCC, helps thousands of young people – up to the age of 19 – throughout the UK each year, relying on the generosity of the public to continue raising essential funding.
By sponsoring ChildLine for one day, Designer Contracts offered vital support to the charity, which requires £30,000 per day to enable it to help the 800 children that may call on a daily basis.
Past Master, Liveryman and md at Designer Contracts Peter Kelsey said: “We were thrilled to be able to support ChildLine. It’s astonishing how much money the charity needs to generate to enable it to operate efficiently.
“Having heard the brilliant talks that the NSPCC delivers in schools, we felt that this was a cause that we must support. Children are our future and we all have a duty to do whatever we can to keep them safe.
“By offering a friendly, supportive and accessible service, ChildlLine has helped thousands of children since it launched, making it a critical service for youngsters throughout the country.
“The third of December was a significant day for us, not just because we were able to sponsor a day’s running of the charity, but it is also the day 14 years ago when Designer Contracts became an independent business.”
Designer Contracts was recently named in the Business Reporter’s Best of British Campaign, which recognises success stories in British business. The accolade was awarded to just 10 companies in the UK.
Designer Contracts operates across 15 UK regional facilities. As well as flooring the company provides curtains and blinds, furniture and lighting, and operates a showhome and design services division.
