Grass donation helps us complete our new Meet&Match® area! Our North Yorkshire centre has gratefully received support from the Flooring Superstore in Monks Cross York. The superstore has generously donated over £300 worth of artificial grass for the centre’s new Meet&Match® area. Miranda Sabey, our North Yorkshire centre’s Deputy Manager explains: “The new Meet&Match® area was a massive project for us and like all charities, every penny we spend matters, so to receive the kind donation of artificial turf from Flooring Superstore was fantastic. “It’s one of the centrepieces of the new area where dogs and their prospective owners can properly get to know each other, away from the noise of the kennels. “It’s proving very popular with visitors and because of donations like this one, it means we have been able to redirect the money we would have spent on the flooring to other key areas, such as training and the health and wellbeing of the dogs at the centre.” Our pioneering Meet&Match® process enables potential adopters to meet our rescue dogs away from the stressful kennel environment, allowing them to get to know each other in a calmer and more relaxed environment. Mark Clayton, Manager of the York Flooring Superstore, said: “We were delighted to have been able to support such a wonderful local charity which does a great job rehoming dogs with people who can provide them with a great quality of life. “We donated 80m² of our Adelaide Artificial Grass as its 18mm pile height was perfect for the project. In general we recommend pet owners go for range no taller than 30mm due to the ease of cleaning after our furry friends. It’s great to know that the turf is proving popular with the dogs!” Flooring Superstore in York is one of 16 across the UK which is owned by family-run, independent company Connection Flooring. Shoppers to the store, and online, have access to three brands, Flooring Superstore, Grass Direct and Direct Wood Flooring.
