A SWINDON retailer has gifted £10,000 worth of flooring to help a UK charity which provides a safe haven for people facing homelessness.

Flooring Superstore recently donated carpets from its store on the Bridgemead Retail Park, which are being used to furnish supported accommodation projects and one-bedroomed flats run by Oasis Community Housing.

The carpets are being distributed within the charity’s homelessness projects across the North-East of England and London.

David Smith, Oasis Community Housing’s Chief Executive, said: “Every year Oasis Community Housing helps almost 2,000 men, women and vulnerable families through our crisis drop-in services and supported accommodation projects."

Dan Foskett, Chief Executive Officer of Flooring Superstore, said: “We are delighted to have been able to support the work of a national charity like Oasis Community Housing, whose services have never been more needed than they are now in the present, still uncertain, climate."
