Have you seen our advertisement?

We've been advertising across the cleaning and facilities management media in the first few months of this year, announcing the launch of our new Accreditation Scheme for Distributors.  

Watch this space.  We'll be announcing the first distributors to gain admittance to the Scheme in our April newsletter.  

A huge thank you ...

... to our members who have generously donated a raffle prize for our Gala Ball: SCA Hygiene, DJB Supplies, Polaris Plastics, Cromwell Polythene, Metsa Tissue, Arco, HPC Healthline, RPC bpi refuse, Jangro, Harrison Wipes and Deb.  

If you want to add to this haul of wonderfully generous gifts contact Linda Belcher.  

Last year we raised more than £8,000 for our chosen charity.  This year we'd love to raise even more for the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People).
