The FM industry smashed last year’s record at Cleanology’s annual event to raise funds for The Hygiene Bank.

We are delighted to inform you that we had a full house at our event last night, held at The Ivy in London where we raised £13,000 with product donations of £8000.

Organiser, and CEO of Cleanology, Dominic Ponniah, said: “The generosity and engagement of our industry has been astonishing. This year, we recruited sponsors, who have championed the cause and helped us take the event to a new level. We are really proud to see so many industry representatives coming together to achieve a common goal. With the cost of living biting more each day, there has never been a more important time to support the work of The Hygiene Bank.”

Ruth Brock, CEO at The Hygiene Bank, said: “The Hygiene Bank is so grateful to Dominic Ponniah and Cleanology and all the sponsors of this event for their fantastic generosity. We are thrilled to have raised crucial funds for the charity’s work and to have had the chance to raise awareness of hygiene poverty and how it affects the lives of millions of people across the UK. As the need for our work grows, we need more individuals and companies to follow in their footsteps and join us, as we work together to end hygiene poverty for good.”

The event was backed by six of the biggest names in the industry – Truvox International, Darwin Clayton, Zep and Cleenol Group. They joined guests from all areas of business and media and included organisations such as the British Institute of Cleaning Services and Living Wage Foundation. The evening saw competitive bidding for auction and raffle items such as tickets to the Regents Park Open Air Theatre, a night’s stay at Soho House, and champagne provided by Berry Bros & Rudd.

We look forward to holding a similar event in 2023 to help The Hygiene Bank.

We welcome the support of the sponsors. This commitment brings valuable extra funds, but we are also excited to be able to work collaboratively to tackle such an important issue. Figures show that one in three people have to go without hygiene essentials and, sadly, as the cost of living rises, we can only expect to see this number increase.
