As our staff and our customers are mainly local people we believe that we have a responsibility to give something back to our local Halton community whenever we can.
HERE A FEW EXAMPLES OF THIS DURING THE LAST FEW YEARS:
In February 2021, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we asked the public to nominate their favourite charity or organisation that benefits our local Halton community, and we pledged to donate £250 to whoever received the most nominations. The winner was Halton Riverside Boxing Club, who's coaches volunteer their time to train local children and adults.
We have made monthly contributions to our fantastic local hospice Halton Haven for a number of years and in 2019 we raised a further £225 by doing sponsored runs.
In 2019 we got together with 2 other fantastic local companies, Ace Blinds and Honest Cat Content Services to fund raise for the Halton Christmas Toy Appeal and raised over £400 for local children.
In 2020 we raised a total of £1110 by asking other local businesses to join us in donating to the appeal.
We have supported the amazing Widnes based organisation Nightstop Communities NW ltd for a number of years with monthly donations and in 2019 we raised a further £225 for them by doing sponsored runs. Amongst other things Nightstop help to home the homeless and provide counselling services.
We have provided cleaning for Halton’s foodbanks on a non-profit basis for a number of years and have also done food collections with our employees.
When Widnes Vikings were in danger of going bankrupt, our employees stepped up to the plate and raised £1500 by doing sponsored walks, supermarket bucket collections and donating from their wages (we matched their donations). We are also Widnes Vikings’ official Cleaning partners and instead of being paid money for providing the cleaning service, we get matchday tickets for the hospitality lounge, which we then donate back to the community through our 1st try scorer competitions. We hope to resume this once covid allows.
We offer a generous discount for local charities, like The Studio, who are a fantastic local organisation, and have benefitted from discount cleaning from us since 2012.
In recent years we have entered the prestigious Halton Business Awards. This is an award ceremony held annually by Halton Borough Council and Halton Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the best businesses that Halton has to offer. Any local businesses can enter and it is always a fantastic event with some amazing businesses and organisations competing for the various award categories.
In both 2016 and 2017 we were Highly Commended in the Outstanding Customer Service category which we were absolutely delighted with, then in 2018 we managed to go one better and were outright winners of the same category, a feat that we also repeated at the 2019 Awards.
In 2019 we were also finalists in the Responsible Business category, which we were especially proud of as we pride ourselves on conducting our business in a responsible way.
