ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Manchester have been getting in the festive and charitable spirit by supporting Bolton at Home this Christmas.

Bolton at Home is a charitable community benefit society that works to create ‘homes and neighbourhoods we can all be proud of’ in the Bolton area.

As an organisation, Bolton at Home owns, manages, and maintains over 18,000 homes across Bolton borough and works in partnership with a variety of local charities, and social enterprises.

This helps people from across the community and supports them when dealing with issues like debt, poverty, homelessness, and domestic abuse.

Support from ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Manchester

This Christmas, the team at ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Manchester have helped to support Bolton At Home by helping to pack Christmas parcel packages for the elderly residents of the Bolton community.

In just 2 hours, Carol (the Bolton Area Supervisor), Charles (Administration Assistant) and CJ (Commercial Director) managed to pack 385 elderly gentleman’s parcels and over 50 elderly couples’ parcels, which are out for delivery currently, to arrive ahead of Christmas.

These parcels included items like warm socks, gloves, coffee, soup, biscuits, chocolate, pens, torches, mugs and Christmas crackers.

The team said it was “A very humbling experience for all involved, [we’re] so glad our small efforts will make a difference to someone this Christmas.”

A job well done: Charles, Carol, and CJ with their fully-packed parcels

In December , ServiceMaster Clean COntract Services Canterbury/Ashford carried out a Beach Clean to raise money for Porchlight. Porchlight is the largest charity in Kent that helps the homeless and vulnerable.

We are pleased to say we raised £198.50! This will go a long way to funding their homeless helpline or providing welcome packs for someone’s first night away from the streets .

Thank you to everyone who donated!

We shall keep you posted about our next charity event.

Here at ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Canterbury we are passionate about cleaning and giving back to our local community.

As part of our commitment to our local community and our company environmental ethos, ServiceMaster Canterbury took part in a Beach clean. The beach clean took place on Friday 13th November and four members of the office team took part. The team were provided with a litter picking kit by the foreshore services through Canterbury Council and were given a specific part of the beach to clean.
The clean took about an hour and a half in total and made a noticeable difference to the beach so all of the local residents can enjoy it more. As part of our environmentally aware ethos at ServiceMaster Canterbury, we are putting plans in place to take part in more regular beach cleans during 2020.
ServiceMaster Canterbury are putting in plans to go ‘Above and Beyond’ not only in cleaning but also giving back to our local community and raising money for a local charity while we are at it.
Here’s to a brighter, cleaner, healthier 2020

All of the team at ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Guildford, are delighted that one of our clients – YMCA Guildford Foyer has been nominated for an award at the YMCA Youth Matters awards.

Just over 3 years ago YMCA Guildford was registered as a welcome centre for Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children (UASC). Due to local authority cuts the welcome centre service was cut. However YMCA Guildford were determined to maintain their services and put to use the expertise developed in that time to support newly arrived UASC within a supported housing environment.

The award they have been nominated for is the Diversity Award 2019

We’d love to help the team atYMCA Guildford Foyer get the votes they need to get shortlisted and get the awesome young people they work with to the event and we’d love it if you could help too.

One of our franchisees, Siva Kugathas, who runs ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Guildford slept on the streets to support YMCA!

Siva YMCA

YMCA DownsLink Group hosted their annual Sleep Easy Event at Guildford Castle, which had around 31 people sleeping outdoors on the night of Friday 22nd March.

Siva was one of the dedicated men and women that decided to support this fantastic cause and decided to donate a whopping £1000 to the event and YMCA.

“It was very tough having to sleep just the one night outside, but homeless people sleep every night on the street. I knew I would go home the next day, but those who sleep on the streets don’t have that facility. It made me think deeper.” commented Siva

Sleep Easy has taken place in five locations so far across YMCA DownsLink Groups area, and to date, they have raised more than £42,000! The money raised goes towards helping young people that are currently living homeless, for multiple different reasons.

Donations can still be made online to this great cause at bit.ly/SleepEasy19.

Siva also added, “I am proud to have been involved with this event, and at ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Guildford we are always looking to closely work with local charities and support them in any way we can”.
