The past weekend, company HGtrade organized the already tenth donation campaign for the renovation of parquet surfaces. The Helios Group, together with HGtrade and eight entrepreneurs, parquet layers from all over Slovenia, provided the wooden floors in four playrooms of the Črnomelj Kindergarten in Slovenia with a completely new shine and protection. From now on, the playrooms will thus be even more suitable for children’s activities and games.

Chromoden parquet lacquers, produced in the Helios Group and marketed by Helios’s company HGtrade, are water-based and thus environmentally friendly, and also distinguished by their exceptional resistance to wear and tear. Chromoden lacquers thus give parquet surfaces a beautiful appearance, also in school playrooms and sports halls. The lacquers will also give a new image to 200 m2 of parquet surfaces in four playrooms of the Črnomelj Kindergarten.

Deputy-Headteacher Irena Veselič Kos after the end of the donation campaign:

We are pleased that HGtrade chose our kindergarten on the tenth anniversary of the donation campaign for the renovation of parquet floors. The renovation of the parquet is a significant investment for us, so I would like to say a big thank you on behalf of the children, their parents and the staff. We are already looking forward to new, playful days in the renovated playrooms.

The Mayor of Črnomelj, Mojca Čemas Stjepanovič welcomed the project:

“After the storm that recently hit our municipality, we are grateful for any help, because for us such investments are quite significant. We are pleased that the newer part of the kindergarten of the Loka unit was selected as part of the donation campaign for the renovation of parquet surfaces. Thank you to Helios and to the tradesmen, who have made sure that the children will smile on the new parquet floor, where playtime will be even more wonderful than before.

The project’s initiator and organizer Darija Medved, from HGtrade noted:

“We are proud to have led the project for the tenth year in a row and that the playrooms of kindergartens from all over Slovenia have got a new look. The project is the result of a collaboration between our company and the floor layers, who, despite the high season, always give their time for this project. The feeling of having made big changes with little effort serves as an inspiration for future work.

For her long-term work on the project, this year she received the Special Award from the Chamber of Craft of Slovenia (OZS), by the Flooring Section.
