John has a unique view of Spruce Carpets, having worked in all aspects of the business.
‘When it was formed in 2005 Spruce’s central mission was to alleviate floor-covering poverty.
There were kids waking up in the morning and stepping onto bare floorboards and concrete floors. Putting an end to this inequality guides the work to this day.
What has grown around us is the range of partners who share our mission ranging from the donors who supply stock, to housing providers who help us to help customers.
We still walk into houses with bare boards. Now we have the team together to put things right.”
