GOING WITH ‘THE FLO’ TO SUPPORT THE NHS
Posted on: 21st Apr 2020
We are delighted to launch our new brand Tormar with a piece of furniture that will see all profits going to the NHS.
After being forced to close our doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, managing director Alex Adgar was at home and wondering what he could do to help “the cause”, when he came up with the idea.
He said: “Everyone is at home and facing difficulties with work and home life. My wife works in the NHS and is still going in every day. I therefore felt I couldn’t sit and do nothing. I can’t be at the sharp end of what is going on, but this is my contribution towards assisting people’s lives in some way.”
The white desk, made from riga and valchromat, has been designed with homeworkers in mind. To keep them positive during the current pandemic, Alex has engraved each desk with a quote from Florence Nightingale:“I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took an excuse.”
Alex added: “Coronavirus has had such a massive impact on the way we all work and live. I wanted to keep on making furniture at home to ensure I was using my time effectively. That’s when I came up with the idea of the Tormar desk.
“I have called the desk The Flo, after Florence Nightingale, and I decided we would sell them at no profit so we can put as much money as possible into supporting the NHS.
“We hear the stark news from the NHS every day; there is so much it needs in terms of staff and resources. I wanted to help in my small way. I thought the quote would be relevant – not just for the times we are currently living in, but also to inspire people who are working alone at home and could be doing for many more weeks to come.”
FREE DELIVERY IN NOTTINGHAMSHIRE
The Flo desk is £285 with 20% of this going to the NHS locally in Nottingham. We are offering free delivery in the Nottinghamshire area and £30 to deliver elsewhere in the UK. The desk arrives as a flatpack ready for easy assembly.
We are planning to formally launch our bespoke furniture brand Tormar later this year but to find out more about the brand or how you can purchase The Flo desk, please visit www.tormar.co.uk.
