Community clean-up initiative

02 March 2018

Family-owned business Robert Scott has set its sights on a new campaign to give back to the local communities of its customers with the introduction of its inaugural ‘Cleaning up your Community’ competition. 

As a manufacturer and supplier with national reach, Robert Scott cares about the communities its customers service and the passion they share for cleaning with their end users. 

To mark the Great British Spring Clean Weekend, the company will launch the competition on Friday 2nd March 2018 giving customers the opportunity to nominate a worthy community project in need of some cleaning TLC. The winning project will receive £500 worth of cleaning products and a day’s cleaning time from a professional team on behalf of Robert Scott, with four regional project finalists also receiving £250 worth of Robert Scott products.

All entrants will be judged by a panel of industry leaders including chairman of the British Cleaning Council, Stan Atkins, editor of Cleaning & Maintenance magazine, Neil Nixon, head of sales at Robert Scott, Gill Ireson, and sales director, Alastair Scott. 

Projects could range from a local community group, charity, public space or another worthy cause. This could be a scout hut that’s seen better days, a local beachfront or park that’s become overrun with litter or a charity HQ in need of a Spring clean. 

Alastair Scott, sales director at Robert Scott, said: “As a business that’s been part of our own local community for over 90 years, our aim with this initiative is to provide an opportunity for our customers to give something back with a little help from Robert Scott. We know there will be some thoroughly deserving projects across the country and we look forward to receiving the entries and offering a helping hand to the winners.” 

Nominations can be submitted by email to community@robert-scott.co.uk, simply include the name and location of the project with a picture and your reasons why they deserve to win. Deadline for entries is Monday 16th April 2018. 

In addition to the competition, Robert Scott has created its first ‘spotless’ Spotify playlist to provide some musical motivation across the country in time for the Great British Spring Clean Weekend. From Queen’s ‘Another One Bites the Dust’, to ‘Car Wash’ by Rose Royce, the playlist was curated by Robert’s Scott’s team using its 90 years’ cleaning know-how and combined record collections. The playlist can be downloaded from Spotify via this link – http://spoti.fi/2CNI0Ax.
