Karndean Designflooring is to mark its 40th anniversary with a series of flooring donations. The company, founded by Mike Walker, is launching a year-long campaign looking at where it began and its position today while supporting charities in the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
To start the celebrations, Karndean is launching its 40 Free Floors for 40 Good Causes campaign on Facebook. The campaign will call on the public to nominate individuals, families, businesses and other worthy causes they think deserve to win a free Karndean floor. There will be 15 winners chosen from the UK, with five chosen by Karndean and 10 selected from Facebook nominations. The first three floors will be donated to Birmingham Children's Hospital, Dogs Trust and Pitmaston Primary School in Worcester.
There will also be 15 winners from the USA and 10 from Australia and New Zealand.
Inspired by Smokey, Walker's Great Dane (pictured with Walker), who is still present on Karndean's logo, Karndean will donate £1 to Dogs Trust for every Facebook 'like' it receives, up to £5,000.
"As a brand we have always aimed to make stunningly beautiful and authentic floors," explains
'Our 40th anniversary is a massive achievement and we're extremely proud of where we started and where we are today. And what better way to celebrate than by giving back to our customers and helping a variety of excellent causes', says Paul Barratt, Karndean Designflooring md.
