Flooring companies play part in NHS food project

A Second World War hangar has been converted into an area providing free meals for NHS workers and required non-slip flooring to make it safe.

The NHS food project, “Salute the NHS” is led by Ron Dennis, the founder of McLaren Racing Ltd. He found an aircraft hangar dating to the second world war near Bicester, Oxfordshire but it needed new flooring. Suppliers and installers provided materials and services for the floor at below cost.

The aim of Salute the NHS is to deliver a million nutritious meals in three months to the NHS frontline fighting the coronavirus outbreak as well as vulnerable people isolated at home. The hangar, known as Hangar 113, has been converted to a pick, pack and distribution centre for the meals.

Like most warehouses, Hangar 113 needed non slip flooring to make it safe for the hundreds of volunteers who are working there. The two flooring companies that installed the flooring needed to install it quickly and worked efficiently to complete the job within a week.

Ron Dennis recognised the efforts of everyone involved in the project:

“We applaud the immense efforts of every individual and organisation that have already put their shoulders behind helping the heroes on our NHS front-line.”

Care homes and health centres install non slip flooring to protect elderly or frail people from fall injuries. Vulnerable people self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic can also be protected by non slip flooring in their Wirral and Cheshire homes.
