Family run furniture supplier supports NHS effort

by Saul Leese

Dzine Furniture Hire International has made use of furniture sitting in their warehouse by offering it to NHS frontline hospitals battling Covid-19.

The company, which has supplied Mobile World Congress, Cannes Lions and Sibos London, loaned the furniture to Leighton Hospital earlier this week.

Emma Robertson, Charity Manager for Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said: “We were delighted to hear about Dzine Furniture and their services on offer and we contacted them straight away.   They have enabled us to furnish a number of our staff areas where they can receive counselling and mental health support.

“Not only are they providing a range of sofas for each of the areas but also their  “bright stools” which is illuminated furniture with mood lighting to aid escapism and relaxation amongst all the stress and anxiety that they are dealing with on a daily basis.  You don’t realise how much this is really going to help our frontline staff.”

The company, based in Stourport-on-Severn, is looking to offer furniture hire and logistics free of charge to other NHS Trusts and temporary hospital venues to support NHS workers and patients.

Betsy Vickery, MD of Dzine said: “We are a family run furniture hire company that has provided furniture to Exhibitions, Events, Conferences and hospitality sectors across the UK and Europe for 20 years.

“We all have many friends and family members that are working tirelessly on the frontline and have been humbled by what they are doing and the effect it is having on them and their families. Although we do not have the skills needed to help medically, we feel strongly about offering any support and help we can in the fight against the Coronavirus COVID-19.

“Our own business has been hit hard by the cancellation of events across the UK and Europe since February, our furniture is currently just sitting in our warehouse and we really want it to be put to good use.  The entire company; from office staff, warehouse and our drivers have all volunteered their time to support this initiative which makes me immensely proud.”
