OCS supports flood victims across the North

02 March 2016

Following the recent devastating floods that affected the North of England, OCS has been helping businesses to restore their premises.

The HSS Hire branch in Lancaster suffered extensive damage after floodwaters reached a metre high in the building. OCS was contacted for their specialist cleaning expertise, so that business could resume as soon as possible. They were able to send a team out the following morning and a deep cleaning of the shop, including walls and windows, was completed in one day, allowing business to resume with minimal disruption.

In Leeds, Roger Young, OCS operations manager at Trinity Leeds shopping centre, responded to a request for help on Twitter, from the local leader of Leeds City Council, to assist local community flood victims. As well as offering their cleaning services, working alongside local volunteers, OCS provided a much-needed water pump, jet wash and cleaning equipment.

The OCS team helped on a number of days and was invited to the reopening of social enterprise Seagulls Paint Store with the Chief Executive of Leeds Council, who praised Trinity Leeds’ support. Seagulls said they would not have been ready for months if it were not for the help of OCS and tweeted: ‘@TrinityLeeds you are our knights in shining armour, words cannot describe our gratitude’.
