Consumers who purchase from the Top Carpets And Floors Group now have an increased opportunity to help those in need, by simply making the right flooring choice. Within the “We Care” umbrella our corporate social responsibility programme extends to include non-profit organisations, namely Reach For Recovery, Operation Smile South Africa and various national animal welfare programmes. For over 10 years Top Carpets and Floors have, and continues to enjoy a partnership with the Reach For Recovery breast cancer awareness programme.
Barry Hatch (CEO) of the Top Carpets and Floors Group, says, “It has been inspiring to know that our consumers have been able to make a difference within these important organisations.”
Reach for Recovery provides free, non-medical support and information to breast cancer patients as well as assistance in the recovery process. Being cancer survivors themselves, the trained Volunteers are able to provide lots of encouragement as well as practical and emotional support and counselling to the breast cancer patients and their families. The organisation also offers prostheses, visits to patients in hospital before and after their surgery, regular meetings and breast cancer education.
Operation Smile South Africa gives hope to children and families by providing free operations to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities in children. It takes as little as 45 minutes to bring about a beautiful new smile to these child.
