As November comes to a close, we joyously mark the triumphant conclusion of Floorworld's "Stepping Up for a Cure with Pancare" campaign. Originating as a heartfelt tribute to two significant individuals in the Floorworld narrative, Billy Tsapatsaris and Glenn Jeffcoat, this initiative surpassed mere fundraising; it stood as a testament to the combined strength of our suppliers and members rallying for a cause that extends beyond commerce, paying homage to those both past and present.

In a world where corporate social responsibility is gaining prominence, Floorworld has once again demonstrated its commitment to making a positive impact on the community. The recent campaign with Pancare to Step Up for a Cure has not only highlighted our dedication to philanthropy but has also resulted in a resounding success for the cause of pancreatic cancer research and support.  

The campaign proved to be a beacon of hope and support for those affected by upper GI cancer, with $71,383 donated to the cause. Floorworld members, suppliers, and customers have rallied together to contribute to the cause, turning the campaign into a remarkable success. A considerable part of the success is credited to all our supplier partners: Australian Select Timbers, Imagine Floors by Airstep, Clever Choice Floors, Dunlop Floors, Quick Step floor designers, Godfrey Hirst, Redbook Green Carpets, Fully Promoted and Beaulieu! 

  • Fundraising Triumph
  • Floorworld, known for its innovative flooring solutions, displayed an equally impressive commitment to fundraising. Through various initiatives such as charity events, donation drives, and employee engagement programs, the company successfully raised a substantial amount to aid Pancare's initiatives in pancreatic cancer research and patient support. 


Empowering Pancare's Mission

At the heart of this initiative is the Pancare Foundation, a non-profit organization tirelessly dedicated to supporting those grappling with upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. These encompass pancreatic, liver, stomach, and esophageal cancers, presenting formidable challenges due to late-stage diagnoses and limited treatment options. Pancare's mission, rooted in research, education, and support, strives to illuminate a path toward improved outcomes for individuals confronting these daunting diagnoses.

Fueling Research Initiatives

A substantial share of the campaign proceeds serves as a lifeline for the Pancare Foundation's research endeavours. Through strategic alliances with esteemed medical institutions and research facilities, Pancare ensures that every dollar contributes meaningfully to unravelling the complexities of upper GI cancers. The success of our campaign propels Pancare's ongoing research, bringing us closer to breakthroughs in understanding, treatment, and, ultimately, a cure.


Providing Holistic Support

Beyond the realms of research, Pancare extends crucial support services to patients and families navigating the challenges of upper GI cancers. From support services, including counselling to financial assistance, Pancare stands unwavering in ensuring that no one faces these diagnoses alone. Additionally, Pancare serves as a formidable advocate, amplifying the voices of those affected to instigate positive change in awareness, diagnosis, and treatment.


  • Member and Supplier Engagement
  • The success of any campaign is often measured by the level of engagement it generates. Floorworld members and suppliers embraced the Step Up for a Cure campaign wholeheartedly, taking part in fundraising activities and spreading awareness within their communities. This internal support not only boosted morale but also strengthened the company's sense of social responsibility. 

  • In this journey of compassion and collaboration, Floorworld takes great pride in its ongoing partnership with the Pancare Foundation. The success of the "Stepping Up for a Cure" campaign stands as a testament to the unwavering dedication, hard work, and generosity exhibited by our suppliers and members. Beyond the significant financial contributions, it highlights a collective commitment to actively support Pancare's impactful work. As we celebrate the success of "Stepping Up for a Cure," we eagerly anticipate a sustained partnership united in our endeavour to contribute to a future where no one faces upper GI cancers alone.


  • Through a combination of fundraising prowess, member engagement, customer involvement, community outreach, and strategic use of social media, Floorworld has set a commendable example for corporate social responsibility. As we celebrate the success of this campaign, we also look forward to a future where companies use their influence to create meaningful change in the world.
