A big massive congratulations goes out to Daniel, our business development manager, who successfully completed the London to Brighton Trek this weekend. So far he has raised over £1,200 for The British Heat Foundation.
With less than half the walkers completing the trek, we are enormously proud on Daniel for finishing the non-stop 62 mile walk in just over 28 hours.
Daniel is back in the office today in one piece but with very sore feet! I am sure you will all join us in congratulating him on this amazing achievement.
“I’m pleased to say that I completed the trek in about 28h 15m. This was the most amazing thing I have ever done, I just didn’t anticipate the heat and blisters! I really appreciated Dan coming to see me along the way and Andy walking with me through the night to Brighton, it really spurred me on.
Thank you for everyone’s support and kind messages, I am really humbled by the amount raised so far, but if you haven’t yet got round to sponsoring yet there’s still time!”
The team at Futures Supplies would like to pass on its heartfelt congratulations to our partners, Chequers Contract Services where the champagne corks have been furiously popping over the past few weeks!
Not only did the company walk away with three prizes at the recent Croydon Business Awards – Business of the Year, Best Business for Training and Development, and Best Business for Apprenticeships and Employment of Young People but also in the prestigious London Business Awards where the best companies in the capital were recognised they collected a prestigious award for the Best Business for Apprenticeships and Employment for Young People.
Kate Ward, Sales and Marketing Director said, “Our celebrations could not have been achieved if it wasn’t for the great partnerships we have forged with our clients, business partners and suppliers, all of whom are instrumental to the success of our business. This is supported by the hard work, dedication and commitment of our staff who, which goes without saying, are our greatest asset.”
Being certified to BS EN ISO 14001:2004 endorses our commitment to researching innovative and environmentally friendly cleaning systems to offer to our customers.
The Big White Refill Mop System from Robert Scott & Sons Ltd does just that and is a new eco-friendly mopping system which is available from Futures Supplies.
The patented, simple and easy to use system has a detachable socket and clip and a replaceable mop refill so that it can be disposed of in a paper recycling bin and a brand new one fitted.
The plastic socket and clip can be washed and reused many times and whilst it is colour coded for ease, it can also prevent cross contamination in environmentally sensitive areas.
With over 700 tonnes of plastic mop sockets being bought and sold by the UK cleaning industry and most of which ends up in landfill, this system is more hygienic, more environmentally friendly but most importantly less costly for your business.
Taking part in Katrin’s recent tree planting campaign whilst attending Interclean in Amsterdam, we are delighted that Metsa has decided to support a reforestation project in so-called ‘Krattwald’ in Handeloh (North Lower Saxony, Germany). The area is known for its old, overgrown oak trees spreading over approx. 2,000 sqm.
To regenerate and preserve this 150 year old population, young oak and yew trees are going to be planted during peak planting season in fall and we are excited that our tree has been planted!
