LOCAL projects aiming to tidy up the community have the chance to win a helping hand from Greenfield company Robert Scott.
The fourth generation, family-owned business, which is one of the UK’s leading cleaning product manufacturer and distributors, is bringing back the competition after a successful debut last year.
The competition, launched as part of the Great British Spring Clean, provides the opportunity to nominate a worthy community project in need of some cleaning TLC.
Four regional project finalists will receive £250 worth of Robert Scott products while the overall winner will receive £500 worth of cleaning products and a day’s cleaning on behalf of Robert Scott.
All entrants will be judged by a panel of industry leaders including chairman of the Great British Cleaning Council Stan Atkins, editor of Cleaning & Maintenance magazine Neil Nixon, head of sales at Robert Scott Gill Ireson, and the company’s sales director Alastair Scott.
Projects can range from a local community group or charity to an area of public space or a facility used by the local community.
Last year Dovestone Youth Rangers were named as a regional finalist and won a donation of £250 worth cleaning products to help them continue the valuable work they do.
The overall winner in 2018 was the Pentref Taclus group from Llanberis, residents who organise regular walking clean-ups of the town, which is a popular tourist destination in North Wales.
Alastair Scott, sales director at Robert Scott, said: “As a business that’s been part of our own local community for over 90 years, we want to provide an opportunity for our customers to give something back.
“It was fantastic to see the diversity of entries last year, from a gymnastics club in Rochdale to a dog shelter in Sheffield.
“We know there are so many deserving projects across the country and we look forward to seeing this year’s entries and offering a little cleaning know-how and a helping hand to the winners.”
Nominations can be submitted online at www.robert-scott.co.uk by providing the name and location of the project with a picture and your reasons why they deserve to win. The deadline for entries is Friday, April 26, 2019.
In addition to the competition, Robert Scott will release its 2019 ‘spotless’ Spotify playlist to provide some musical motivation for the Great British Spring Clean.
From Queen’s ‘Another One Bites the Dust’, to ‘Car Wash’ by Rose Royce, the playlist is 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 at http://spoti.fi/2CNI0Ax.
