The company has extended its Reach For Recovery corporate social responsibility programme under the WE CARE banner to include non-profit organisations, Operation Smile South Africa and various national animal welfare programmes.

Barry Hatch (CEO) of Top Carpets and Floors, said: “It has been inspiring to see the difference our consumers have been able to make to Reach for Recovery as it carries out its important work among those affected by breast cancer.”

“We are extremely pleased to be able to extend our reach by rolling out our We Care programme to vulnerable children and animals. These are certainly causes close not only to our customers’ hearts, but also to ours,” he added.

Reach for Recovery provides free, non-medical support and information to breast cancer patients and assists in the recovery process. Its trained volunteers are themselves cancer survivors. Our retail outlets nationally are used to distribute information for Reach for Recovery and to raise additional funds for their local chapters.
