Robert Scott launches new community clean-up initiative

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.

To mark the Great British Spring Clean Weekend, the company launched the competition on Friday 2 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 of 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: Stan Atkins, chairman of the British Cleaning Council; Neil Nixon, editor of Cleaning & Maintenance magazine and conference director for the Cleaning Show; Gill Ireson, head of sales at Robert Scott; and Alastair Scott, sales director at Robert 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 - simply include the name and location of the project with a picture and your reasons why it deserves to win. Deadline for entries is Monday 16 April 2018.
