MODULEO, a flooring brand which has its UK headquarters in Derby, has provided a £500 donation to the also Derby-based Central Musical Theatre Company as a show of support this year.
The Central Musical Theatre Company’s aim is to provide quality entertainment and keep it accessible to a wide audience.
Raising funds annually to offset the costs incurred to stage a musical while keeping ticket prices affordable, the company looks to generate about £3,000 each year.
Nigel Taylor, chair of CMTC, said: ‘Receiving sponsorship from a local business is a wonderful gesture and such patronage helps maintain live theatre, allowing it to thrive. Naturally, theatre has suffered throughout the pandemic therefore we’re very grateful for the donation from Moduleo.’
The Central Musical Theatre company was founded in its first form in 1932 and has since withstood 90 years of change. Most recently it performed a production of ‘Company’ at The Duchess Theatre in Long Eaton.
Alison McLaughlan, UK head of marketing, IVC Group, says: ‘We were keen to support this extraordinary local organisation in order for them to keep putting on fantastic shows and entertaining not just the local area but those who also travel to see them.
‘We’re happy to provide the £500 donation and hope it helps cover some of the costs that are incurred when staging a musical. Especially after a forced hiatus owing to Covid, it’s great to see live performance back and we thought it was important for us to show our support. We’d encourage other businesses like ours to do the same if they’re able.’
Part of the Belgian-headquartered IVC Group, Moduleo offers a range of luxury vinyl flooring styles in wood and stone finishes. For more information on Moduleo flooring, visit its website.
Moduleo says: ‘With a diverse range of durable, stylish products as well as excellent customer service and unparalleled ‘green’ credentials, Moduleo has made a significant impact on the UK flooring market. Moduleo comes in both a traditional LVT construction and a simple-to-install Click system, which holds a strong cross-consumer appeal, making it suitable for any modern space.’
