In 2018 we approached the producers of the BBC programme DIY SOS to offer our services, free of charge, to install the floor coverings at the Grenfell Boxing Club and the community centre that had been destroyed during the devastating fires. This is the most heartfelt project we have ever carried out. The whole Arcadia team worked throughout the night for a whole week completing the work in shifts. Even our office staff mucked in! It was a whole week of solidarity.

 

The hard work paid off when we saw the kids open up the Boxing gym which was just overwhelming.

"On behalf of my Community, Club and Young People from within the Grenfell Tower area it gives me the greatest pleasure on behalf of Dale Youth Club to take this opportunity to thank Arcadia Flooring for their generosity and compassion in providing the exemplary sports flooring for our new gym which has been delivered through BBC DIY SOS and their philanthropic display of support and for Arcadia Flooring's drive, vision, unbridled professionalism and enthusiasm in delivering us a ‘New Boxing Gym’ in our original manor of the Grenfell Tower area at Bay 21 Westway, St Marks Road, London W10."
