    A Warrington Youth Centre that hosted a live vocal performance forty years ago from Freddie Mercury, who would later go onto to be the frontman of rock legends Queen, has been given some much-needed help by international flooring and interiors specialist Gerflor. As part of Gerflor’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), the company played a positive role by donating an Olympic pedigree Taraflex® Sports surface in ‘Silver Gray’ that would benefit the Community and support Grass Roots for many years to come.

    A Doctor who volunteers and helps to run the Penketh Youth Centre outside of her busy schedule, takes up the story. Dr. Leila Dirir said, “The hall was built sometime in the early 1960's and was funded as a youth club for decades but sadly fell into disrepair in the mid -1990's.”

    Dr. Leila further commented, “Back in Jan 2020 I was called by David Carter, Sports National Sales Manager from Gerflor, who had heard we were a small community youth centre that was struggling and were desperate for a new sports floor.” She added, “It was such an amazing opportunity, that they were offering to donate a brand new Taraflex® Olympic pedigree sports floor.”

    Commenting on the project, David Carter said, “On this occasion, it became clear that a small hall of around 120m2 has much more importance to the community than many larger halls. The existing flooring surface was in a state of disrepair. It looked troublesome but we produced the right solution by supplying and donating our high performance Taraflex® AE system.” David Carter continued, “Its’ something that Gerflor as a company and also myself are really proud to help with. Penketh Youth Centre now have a floor from an Olympic supplier right in the heart of the community.”
