A Day at the Races

On Sunday 7th August, Michael John Flooring held a race day at Leicester Racecourse to celebrate our 70th anniversary. With over 100 invited guests made up of staff & customers, it was a day of fun, sun and a flutter on the Michael John sponsored race.

It’s hard to believe that Michael John Flooring has been running since 1946. The world’s changed a lot in those 70 years, but we are still dedicated to supplying high quality flooring to Leicester and Leicestershire. This day was a great opportunity to celebrate all that we’ve achieved in that time, with speeches thanking staff for their hard work and customers for their loyalty.

We also welcomed our colleagues from LOROS to the event. As part of our year-long 70th anniversary celebrations, we have been supporting the Leicester based hospice. We owe a lot of our continued success to our loyal customers, and this is our way of giving something back to the community. Every year, LOROS care for over 2,500 people across Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland. They provide free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill adult patients, their family and carers.

We would like to thank our guests, who donated almost £600 to LOROS. That money can cover the cost of aromatherapy, reflexology, or massage sessions, for 24 of LOROS’s patients or their family members. These help to relieve a patient’s pain and sickness and can reduce anxiety in patients and their family members.

We would also like to thank the staff of Leicester Racecourse, who were all exceptionally helpful and ensured that our stomachs and glasses were always full.

You can donate directly to the LOROS Hospice via our JustGiving page: You can also donate to LOROS by using our JustGiving ‘text code’. Just text MIJF70 to 70 070 followed by your donation amount! You can find out more about LOROS Hospice, by visiting their website:
