At Flexiform, we are very passionate about supporting our staff and the community they live in, from our headquarters in Bradford, West Yorkshire to our hubs in Livingston (Scotland) and (London). We employ as many people from our local communities and try and support them inside and outside of work, investing in community projects which are important to our team. Flexiform encourages the use of local skills and suppliers where practicable to help foster good relationships and help support the local economy. We often support communities by donating reused office furniture or secure metal sheds (made by our sister brand Asgard Secure Steel Storage). These donations not only extend the life of the product but often give vital resources to schools, community projects and independent activity centres. We also support local large projects by offering products at cost, an example of this is the refit of a modern ICT suite, teacher’s desks and storage specifically designed for a local primary school. Community Investments 39th Parkwood (H.S.W) Scout Group As Flexiform continues to grow as a brand and a business we continue to expand our manufacturing capability, our most recent expansion is centred around our seating manufacturing capability. Converting an existing mezzanine area from a photography scoop and prototype area into a fully equipped production line. We naturally need to dispose of surplus products, showroom stock and ex-display items, and products from our sister company Asgard. We have recently donated a Centurion shed to a Yorkshire based Scout group – perfect for safely storing all of their camping equipment. “… Thank you for your kind donation of a Centurion shed, it looks great and will protect all our camping equipment, it will be safe now from potential thieves and also our Great British weather.” – Group Scout Leader Paul Couchman St. Curthbert’s Church & Wrose Community Garden Flexiform donated an Asgard Gladiator to St. Cuthbert’s Church, as part of their growing work with the Wrose Community Garden initiative. The shed is one of Asgard largest and offers plenty of room for them to store the largest gardening equipment. The shed will be used to store gardening equipment and other items used by the 3 local primary schools that attend on a regular basis for wildlife lessons. “A big thank you from Wrose Community Garden and St Cuthbert’s Church for the fantastic donation of the new metal shed. It was delivered on the date and time agreed and the delivery guys gave us plenty of advice on how to get the most out of it. We are overwhelmed by your generosity.” – Steven Harvey Nell Bank Community Centre The main charitable focus for the business is the support of the Nell Bank Charitable Trust in Ilkley, near Bradford. Nell Bank offers day and residential outdoor education to a large number of schools and other community groups for disabled and underprivileged children across various age and ability range. Nell Bank caters for over 15,000 school children each year. Support is given by our staff and Managing Director, Nick Hewitt, who sits on the board of Trustees for over 10 years. In the past, we have donated some tables for their classrooms, and recently we have donated an Asgard Bike Hanger. This supplies a safe place for workers to store their bikes. Flexiform continues to work closely with Nell Bank. CHAS @ St. Vincent’s At Flexiform, we are delighted to support CHAS @ St Vincent’s, a local dedicated community support project which helps disadvantaged people in the BD3 area of Bradford. Flexiform has donated numerous pieces of unused furniture to the projects furniture ‘Re-use’ scheme which helps people with a low budget purchase 2nd hand furniture and household goods. CHAS @ St Vincent’s works with people from all backgrounds and faiths and provides a variety of services to help reduce the effects of poverty. “CHAS @ St. Vincent’s is a great service. As an office furniture manufacturer, it’s essential we donate, reuse and recycle where possible. The donation of the furniture helps extend the product lifecycle” – Andy Heath, Flexiform Marketing Manager Swan Lane Equestrian Centre Flexiform recently donated chairs and lockers to the local horse riding school in Huddersfield. Swan Lane Equestrian Centre is a new local facility and these lockers were spare after a photoshoot and offered vital storage for the school. Swan Lane works with children of all ages, teaching them about looking after horses and riding them. “We often have product leftover from large photoshoots or customer demonstrations. These products sadly can’t always be reused, so, when the opportunity presents itself, we donate as much as we can to local charities or businesses. Putting back into the local area is a key part of Flexiform’s Business Plan, recycling by reusing is exceptionally satisfying for us as a company” – Andy Heath, Marketing Manager Timeout Children’s Home Flexiform donated furniture to Timeout Children’s Homes to help fill out their newly purchased Brearly Hall property. Timeout Children’s Homes is a family-run organisation that was established with the aim of making a real and lasting difference to the lives of children with complex needs. Timeout has become a first-call company for many local authorities and their dedication to providing tailored education for every pupil is exceptional. “Thank you for your kind support with our new school development at Brearly Hall. The furniture is greatly appreciated and has allowed us to hit the ground running with our newest property” – Dominic Macauley, Managing Director Nell Bank Community Centre “Thank you so much for donating the fabulous new chairs to the Nell Bank Charitable Trust. We have been able to replace all of our old worn out ones. We have put some into our dormitory areas for children who are staying overnight, we have replaced all of the chairs in the staff room which has gone down very well with the team and with the remaining ones, we plan to create a small meeting area for visitors interested in bringing children to the centre. For the Nell Bank Charitable Trust, a donation like this is fantastic, not only does it improve the experience of the centre’s visitors and the staff team, it also means we can deploy the money we have saved to support disadvantaged children and further develop our programmes and resources.” – Dan Goodey 39th Parkwood (H.S.W) Scout Group Our upholsterer Mark Woods approached Flexiform to assist with refurbishing a local Scout hut. They have had to relocate from their original space. Over the past 12 months, they had worked tirelessly in finding the perfect location and last on their list was refurbishing the outside for troop night. Through our sister company Asgard Steel Storage, we donated a large roll of artificial grass to help transform the space. Mark was delighted with the outcome which has helped the Scout’s settle into their new premises. “Troop night was fantastic, the artificial grass kindly donated by Asgard and the work involved has helped transform the space offering a fantastic facility” – Mark Woods, Scout Leader Hive Community Arts Centre With our ongoing partnership with Northern Powerhouse, Flexiform continues to support local charities, schools, and colleges. We have joined forces with Hive Community Arts Centre to donate old photoshoot furniture, including items from our office storage ranges and material offcuts from our office seating manufacturing division. Hive is a community arts charity in Shipley that deliver arts and crafts courses and workshops. They believe that creativity contributes to good health and wellbeing. “Andy came to see and also showed us around the factory which was amazing. They had loads of really good quality office furniture which they let us choose from and also delivered it for us. As a charity, these are the elements that we can’t afford to buy new so this has made a massive difference to our organisation.” – Joy Hart Who Cares? Scotland Our Scotland Hub donated a range of furniture to Who Cares? Scotland. The local charity required furniture for a room in their office where they host young people for meetings and collaborations. Donating furniture we no longer require in showrooms really helps the local community and we’re always looking to support our local charities. Who Cares? Scotland is a national voluntary organisation that support care-experience young people and care leavers to have their voice heard. ‘We’re grateful to Flexiform for donating furniture. This allowed us to make our young people’s room more youth-friendly and inviting. Without this donation, the room would have a corporate feel, which could put young people off…so thank you for helping us engage and support more care-experienced young people!’ – Laura Campbell. Lords Brewery Flexiform really believes putting back into our local community is an important part of what we do. When we finish an exhibition or event, we will always look to help local businesses. We recently helped out our friends at Lords Brewery in Huddersfield, a local brewery that has previously supplied their delicious locally brewed ale for our past exhibitions – it’s fantastic stuff! We supplied them with a range of our Ferro storage units which fit perfectly with the aesthetic of the brewery. “At Lord’s Brewing Co we needed hard-wearing quality storage solutions. Flexiform provided high-quality equipment that was able to cope with the brewery’s changing environment, the style of their Ferro range perfectly fits in with our Mill based brewery”. – John Slumbers Lord Mayor of Leeds Flexiform continues to support the local community, recently donating a high specification Actualize task chair as a raffle prize for the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Eid Milun Charity Dinner, with all proceeds going to Leeds Hospital Charity. “With Flexiform being a major West Yorkshire manufacturing company, and Leeds City Council one of our most prestigious clients, supporting the event and the local community is very important to us. It goes hand in hand in donating used and new furniture to schools, charities and clubs across the region.” – Steven Bow, Northern Sales Director. Bright Beginnings Flexiform recently donated fabric samples and a sofa to Bright Beginnings, a nursery in the community. The donation will help the nursery to create a more comfortable and engaging learning environment for the children. The fabric samples that we donated have also allowed us to sustainably reuse materials that may otherwise have been disposed of. “Thank you for the generous donation. The new sofa has transformed an empty space into a comfy and usable seating area. The fabric samples are excellent for the children with the variation of colours, patterns, and textures. They will be used as part of their visual & cognitive learning.” – Laura Allison The Larder Training Flexiform has been working with The Larder Training, a Scottish-based charity that trains disadvantaged children, young people, adults and communities to improve their skills to cook good nourishing food. Our furniture donations of bistro chairs, tables, task chairs and boardroom tables help improve the facility and extend the lifespan of the furniture. “Thank you Flexiform for donating these wonderful tables and chairs. Don’t you agree they look great in the bakery!” – The Larder Bakery Alzheimer Scotland Flexiform donated 12 App task chairs to Alzheimer Scotland from our Scotland office and warehouse, helping extend the lifecycle of these desk chairs. “Flexiform generously donated office chairs to help us furnish a new office in Motherwell. Jemma was really helpful, sending over different options and answering all of our questions. As Scotland’s national dementia charity, the work we do and services we provide are invaluable to people living with dementia, their carers, and families and kind donations make a huge difference, thank you.” – Joanne McNae, Property Officer, Alzheimer Scotland Charities and Food Banks Bradford North Foodbank In our Flexiform headquarters, our staff kindly supported The Trussell Trust’s Bradford North’s foodbank, donating a large range of food and toiletries to the local area. The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 420 foodbanks, which work out of more than 1,200 centres across the UK providing emergency food to people referred for support. “Hi Andy, Just a quick note to say thank you to all at Flexiform for their generous donations, every item donated helps us to make a real difference in the local (Bradford) area. We have 1 warehouse and 5 distribution centres, giving an average of 1.5 tonnes of food per month! Many thanks” – Steven Harvey Islington Foodbank At our London Hub in Islington, our staff continually support and donate the Islington foodbank, founded by the local church and community. The foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust, a network of over 420 foodbanks, which work out of more than 1,200 centres across the UK providing emergency food to people referred for support. “Supporting the local food bank is incredibly important to our London team, ensuring every member of the community is guaranteed a meal. We hope to continue to support this very important charity in the future.” – Nick Saunders, Sales Director West Lothian Foodbank In 2021, Flexiform’s Scottish Hub donated and installed a range of office furniture across two floors of the West Lothian Foodbank new offices in Bathgate. Comprising a warehouse for organising donations, offices, meeting rooms and canteen, the office furniture is a vital asset for their 7 paid staff and 250 volunteers. “We were delighted to help the Foodbank in fitting out their new offices, giving them the support and resources they need and deserve to keep providing for the community. We were originally due to recycle the furniture on behalf of a client, however as it was perfectly serviceable and we both agreed to donate the furniture to help West Lothian Foodbank furnish their new offices and distribution centre which included meeting rooms and a staff dining/break out facility. Not only are we able to help a great cause, but reusing furniture helps the environment giving the products a new lease of life.” – Steven Bow, Flexiform, Northern Sales Director. Kirkwood Hospice At Flexiform, we are passionate about our ongoing commitment to one of our key partners; Kirkwood Hospice. They provide specialist care to adults with advanced and progressive illnesses at any stage, from the diagnosis to the end of life. Kirkwood Hospice is also there to support the family and friends of the patients and means a lot to our staff within Flexiform. As part of our Clerkenwell Design Week celebrations, yearly furniture and design festival in London, we decided to give away some incredible prizes through raffles and mini-competitions that we hosted throughout the week. Our friends in the industry also helped our cause by donating thousands of pounds worth of prizes. Every penny we raise goes to Kirkwood Hospice as our way of saying thank you. Macmillan Cancer Support’s Brave the Shave Flexiform recently held two events simultaneously to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support; Macmillan’s ‘Brave the Shave’ and a Coffee Morning! Liam (Production Engineer), Ray (Head of Deliveries), Kevin (Production Leader), Pete (Installation) and Richard (Planning Manager) all volunteered for MacMillan’s “Brave the Shave”. Helen, (Asgard Customer Services Manager) and Jane (a professional Hairdresser) took the clippers to the volunteers. Whilst these guys “braved the shave”, the rest of us watched in awe as clippers flew through the air and hair flew to the floor. Fortunately, this didn’t put the rest of us off enjoying the homemade cakes and treats that other staff had made for the event. The total raised for Macmillan Cancer Support was an incredible £1700, an amazing effort by all involved. Watch the video on Youtube. Kirkwood Hospice, Sunshine & Serenity Through our sister company, Asgard Storage, our long time friend Team GB and multi Gold Medalist cyclist Elinor Barker kindly donated her own Asgard bike shed to auction off for Kirkwood. Along with Olympic Medalist Helen Scott, they got their fellow Team GB riders to sign a number of plaques to fix to the shed to make it an even more special prize for one lucky winner! The event marked the 30th anniversary of Kirkwood Hospice. ‘Kirkwood Hospice are delighted and extremely grateful that Flexiform has nominated Kirkwood Hospice as their chosen charity. We very much look forward to working together in the future. All support will go towards vital patient care at the Hospice and will truly make a great difference to local people living with a life-limiting illness’ – Kate Leadbeater, Partnership Development Manager SAMH for Scotland’s Mental Health Our Scotland hub had an open coffee and cake day in aid of SAMH for Scotland’s Mental Health with special guest Angela Constance MSP! The team opened the newly refurbished hub in Scotland with a selection of treats for suppliers, clients and other businesses on the estate. In total the team raised a huge £268.00 for SAMH which will go towards supporting mental health social care support, homelessness, addictions and employment services. A business friend has matched the donated amount, bringing the donation amount to £536. Mind Mental Health Within our Bradford Headquarters, the team hosted a coffee and cake day for internal office staff and factory staff to raise money for Mind charity, a charity close to many in the office. The charity provides advice and support to anyone across England with a mental health problem. Staff baked their favourite sweet and savoury treats and a huge amount of cake, sausage rolls and cheesecake was consumed. The team raised a total of £76.00 in donations. Movember Movember is a Charity supporting Men with Testicular Cancer, Prostate Cancer and mental health. This year (2019), many of our Flexiform staff took part in the event and grew a moustache! We set up a donation page for friends and family to donate throughout November as moustaches began to take shape and we had some fantastic results. In total, we have raised a whopping £346 for the charity! A huge well done to all those that participated to raise money for this fantastic charity. Save the Children’s NationalChristmas Jumper Day At Flexiform’s headquarters in West Yorkshire, our office and factory staff dressed to impress for Save the Children’s annual Christmas Jumper Day on December 14th 2018. Baubles were aplenty, there were fantastic classic Christmas jumpers to homemade creations! Flexiform donated a fabulous prize of a bottle of bubbly and chocolates for the best jumper, won by Jane and her homemade tinsel, baubles and robin jumper! In total, the staff raised £97.22 and hope to join in the fun every year. Flexiform is particularly excited to support Save the Children as part of our continuing relationship with the National charity. SAMH for Scotland’s Mental Health & Edinburgh Marathon Michael Gray and Kirsten Evans from our Scotland hub continue their support for SAMH mental health charity. Joining SAMH at 2022’s Edinburgh Marathon, Michael & Kirsten helped to support charity runners and run their information stall. “We’re really proud of both Michael and Kirsten taking time to support important charities in Scotland, volunteers make a huge difference in helping SAMH make the most out of fundraising events, especially the prestigious Edinburgh Marathon!” – Steven Bow, Northern Sales Director Cancer ResearchUK A group of Flexiform Staff grabbed their raincoats and walking boots to participate in Cancer Research’s Walk 100 Miles in October challenge (2022)! Liz, Mick, Helen, Andy, Basil, Sarah, Dan & Kate managed to trek over 1100 miles as a team, through wild wind and rain, exploring local landmarks (and Dubrovnik while on holiday!). Altogether we managed to raise a huge £1277 – and the team couldn’t be happier! “The walking team rallied around to support and encourage each other through October’s erratic weather, pushing our normal walking habits further with two members racking well over 200 miles each. It’s been great for community spirit, health – and of course, raising money for a great cause, everyone’s been very generous.” – Andy Heath The Salvation Army The staff at Flexiform have got into the Christmas spirit this year, by donating toys for The Salvation Army’s Christmas Toy Drive. The Christmas Toy Drive provides much needed Christmas cheer by supplying presents for underprivileged children age 0 – 15 years. Staff from our Head Office and sales Hub in Livingston came together to donate over 50 toys suitable for all ages, including; colouring books, sticker books, toy trains, jigsaws, toy cars, body sprays, books, dolls, meccano and much more! “We’re really proud of how the Flexiform team responded to the toy drive, Christmas is about the spirit of giving, and the team really came through. We all know how the Cost of Living Crisis is adding extra pressure to parents, so these presents will go a long way in making a child’s Christmas special” – The Flexiform Social Team RSPCA Flexiform continues to collaborate with RSPCA by donating furniture to raise money for the charity organisation. Boardroom tables, storage units, credenzas and breakout chairs have all been given a new lease of life by being donated. “We’re so grateful for the fantastic furniture Flexiform has donated to our branch over the past few months. As a local, independent branch of the RSPCA we have to raise our own funds to run our Animal Centre. One of the ways we do this is through our Charity Shops, we have 9 shops throughout the Bradford, Halifax and Huddersfield area that sell a variety of donated goods that raise funds to help us continue our Animal Welfare work. Flexiform’s donations have been a great boost to our sales and we can’t thank you enough!!”– Lauren Moore, RSPCA Business Fives Flexiform has created our own charity Football Team to raise money for Nell Bank Charitable Trust, a local outdoor nature charity in the Yorkshire Dales. The charity football matches are played against other companies and are organised via Business Fives, an organisation that hosts corporate charity events and has helped to raise over £440,000 for charities to date! Flexiform’s debut football matches came with roaring success winning 3-2 against Smith Butler, 2-1 against The Leo Group, and drawing 1-1 with Mcleod & Aitken – well done team! “Business Fives is a great way to boost morale and support a local charity which is close to our hearts.” – Mark Parrish, General Manager. When You Wish Upon a Star Flexiform has donated a Kruze lounge chair for a charity raffle in aid of When You Wish Upon a Star. Part of a local community Boxing Match, this event will raise money to help make dreams come true for terminally ill and poorly children. The whole event raised £5081.35 for the charity. “We’re very pleased to support this community event and help boost fundraising efforts by donating the luxury chair. It’s a very worthy cause and it helps us to extend the product lifecycle by giving it a new loving home” – The Flexiform Social Team Comic Relief, Red Nose Day Flexiform popped on our red noses and dressed in red for 2023’s Comic Relief Red Nose Day. At our Bradford HQ, our Social Team hosted a quiz, bake sale, and raffled off some hampers to raise a total of £210.64 for this important charity. “Red Nose Day is an iconic event in the yearly calendar which always brings in large amounts of money to make a positive impact across the country and worldwide. It was great to be a part of this, helping bring fun to the office and factory, whilst contributing and making a difference. We’re so proud of our staff embracing these events” – Flexiform Social Team Schools and Universities Clough Head Junior & Infants School Through our sister company, Asgard, Flexiform has recently donated a Gladiator shed to keep playground and sports equipment safe and secure. This resource is invaluable to schools, ensuring sports equipment is kept secure outside the school’s main building. “We would like to relay our appreciation and gratitude to Flexiform in Bradford for their very generous donation of a large outdoor metal shed for school. This is a fabulous resource for us. Due to the nature of our building we are restricted on storage space and in our current climate unable to purchase such expensive items. This will enable us to provide secure much-needed storage for school resources. We are always overwhelmed by the generosity of our parents and local businesses. Thank you, Andy and Flexiform for the support shown to our school.” – Michelle Miller, Business Support Officer Huddersfield University Flexiform partnered with Huddersfield University as a location for several photoshoots throughout 2017 and 2018. These included locations for our Pico desking photoshoot, Jot-Up height adjustable desking and the whole of our office storage range! We hired the various University buildings, donating to the Student Services funds and hiring Design, Marketing & Photography students to model within the shoots. Flexiform has a strong connection with Huddersfield University, with several of the Marketing and Engineering departments being Huddersfield graduates! Supporting the university, the students and using local resources is very important to us, and we look forward to continuing this relationship in the future. Dixon Trinity Academy Students of Dixons Trinity Academy in Bradford were delighted when the team at Asgard (a division of Flexiform) donated top quality wooden crates for use in one of their design technology projects. Teacher Phil Wickham had set his students the task of making some versatile stools, which can also double up as small tables. “Usually when students take on projects like this they have to use whatever wood they can get their hands on whether it is bought in or donated by a local business. This is because the costs can soon build up when you need wood for an entire class. When Asgard donated the pallets to the school, both teachers and students were pleased to see that the wood was of much better quality than they were used to.” Local School (Bradford) To support a local Bradford school, Flexiform donated several ex-demo items from recent photoshoots and exhibitions including chairs, lockers, lightboxes and plan chests. Donating products and services to the local community is important to Flexiform, we take part in numerous shows and photoshoots throughout the year. The products are in perfect condition and ideal for local (startup) businesses and charities who would not necessarily have the funding to buy such items. “Flexiform’s generosity is amazing, in a school such as ours funding is not always available for none essential items, so donations from local businesses are most welcome”. – Scott Jasper, Lead Technician. The Grammar School at Leeds Flexiform continues to support local charities, schools and colleges. Being able to recycle or provide local schools and colleges with furniture or items we no longer require, really help the community and the environment. Recently, we have continued our donation of used palettes for up-cycling. This time The Grammar School at Leeds have taken delivery of our old stacking palettes for the students to use. “These palettes are great for our technical and art departments – we can reuse them on projects, or as in this case reuse them to build sets for our drama group.” – Steven J Clough Head Junior & Infants School Flexiform has continued to support a local Yorkshire school – Clough Head Junior & Infants School with yellow and grey 6 door metal lockers. With the previous owners permission, Flexiform were able to donate the furniture, giving the lockers a new lease of life and adding valuable storage to the classrooms. “Thank you Andy once again we really appreciate the generosity of Flexiform, these cheery looking lockers are perfect for our children, they look absolutely perfect in our classrooms, as budgets are cut almost every year, schools increasingly rely on help from local businesses”. – M.M, School Secretary Clough Head Junior & Infants School “A big thank you to flexiform for their generous donation of rolls of fabric before christmas. The selection are fantastic and were used in the class 3 rag rugging project which the children did for the 2022 calendars they brought home. We also have lots of fabric left to use for future projects. Thank you again flexiform for your continuous support for clough head.” – Claire Kenworthy, Head Teacher Our Staff Events Our staff often participate in their own charity fundraising events, follow our Linked In account for any news and updates on their events and goals. We’ve previously promoted Production Control Supervisor, Satwinder Chana’s daughter’s skydive for Mind mental health charity, Interior Designer Nadia Al-Chalaby’s Race for Life for Cancer Research and National Contract Manager’s 26-mile hike for Macmillan Cancer Support. Just Childcare When Nursery Manager, Sharon Magee’s office desk (literally) started falling apart, Flexiform’s social team jumped in to see how they could help. Our in-house Design department are constantly designing and developing new products, and so, always have prototype test desks in our development area. Our Design team were more than happy to send over a fully electric, height adjustable desk, fitting Sharons needs perfectly. “I would like to say a big thank you to you and flexi form for the gift of a new desk for our office. It has already made a big difference. Thank you again!” – Sharon Rothwell Primary School Flexiforms sister company, Asgard Secure Steel Storage, donates ex-showroom Vangard outdoor shed to Rothwell Primary School. The shed was Installed in their playground, providing the school with much needed; safe, easily accessible, child-friendly storage for toys and play equipment. “We are overjoyed with our new metal Asgard storage. It’s just perfect for our children to access their play equipment. The hooks provided are perfect for hoola hoops too! It’s the perfect size for our small children to access everything. Speedy delivery and erection at a time to suit us when the children are in class. Huge thanks.” – Rothwell Primary School East Bierley Primary School As part of our Social Value initiative, Flexiform has donated an ex-demonstration height adjustable office desk to a local school in Bierley, Yorkshire. Just 4 miles from our headquarters, it was a pleasure to work within our community to help improve facilities and extend the lifespan of this desk, which was still in excellent condition. “We really appreciate the table. As a small school, we do not have a lot of spaces to use for meetings or to work with children. It is great to be able to work with children from across school using the table to sit or stand at when working, but then have a professional space we can use for meetings.” – Mrs Lysa Hammond, Head Teacher East Bierley Primary School Flexiform and sister company Asgard have continued to work with local East Bierley Primary School, this time donating an Asgard Gladiator 7ft x 7ft school storage shed. The shed offers ample space and secure storage, and it will help with the upcoming refurbishment of their playground saving the school over £2200! “Many thanks to Asgard and the Asgard installation team for their kind donation of a playground storage shed. The new shed has pride of place in our playground and is the perfect fit for our forthcoming playground revamp. The new Asgard shed is certainly much more secure, and better looking than our old shed, with neat double door access not impacting on our playground space. The installation team, were friendly and efficient and made a great job of building the shed, installing the internals and tidying up afterwards. Thanks once again.” – Mrs Lysa Hammond, Head Teacher Harmeny Education Trust Flexiform’s Scotland office and warehouse have worked with the Harmeny Education Trust to donate 3 used task chairs and a bank of Freestor Accent Lockers to the school. “At Flexiform, we strive to extend the product lifecycle wherever possible before it goes to recycling. Donating it to a fantastic school facility that’s local to our Scotland office, not only helps the school’s budget, but it is the most environmentally friendly way to utilise the product” – Mark Parrish, Flexiform Director of Operations Colne Valley High School Flexiform’s sister company, Asgard, is committed to supporting local schools by donating storage sheds, with Colne Valley High School receiving a Gladiator 7ft x 11ft school shed. As the school wanted to place the shed in the middle of the sports field, which would help maximise sports time by bringing key equipment to an easy-to-access location, they needed a strong and secure shed to protect items even when there was no one around – the Gladiator school shed fitted the bill having Secured by Design (Police) approved status, Loss Prevention Certification Board level 1 certification and UK Locksmith approval. “Last term we had a break-in and 20 mountain bikes that we have for PE lessons got stolen. We have just had them all replaced but are worried about them being pinched again. We are now confident our bikes and equipment will be safe from theft in our new Asgard shed.” – Claire, Colne Valley High School If you’d like to be considered for a donation please complete the registration form.
