A cleaning company has won national recognition and also raised thousands of pounds for charity during a busy few weeks.
TopMark was awarded a special recognition at the National Carpet Cleaners Association’s (NCCA) 50th anniversary event.
The company was chosen from more than 500 members to receive the award, which recognises national standards in the carpet cleaning trade.
Also, over a weekend the team at TopMark Cleaning participated in a cleanathon lasting 26 hours.
The company offered their services in return for donations to the Round Table Children Wish charity.
Businesses that took part in the cleanthon included the Playbarn and Salamanca Farm Shop.
Continuing the charity theme, Mark Blazey, manager of TopMark Cleaning, completed his fourth London Marathon, in four hours 47 minutes.
Mr Blazey’s successful marathon and the February cleanathon means the company has raised more than £2,000 in aid of their chosen charity, the Round Table Children Wish.
The Round Table Children’s Wish gives handcrafted wishes to children with life threatening diseases.
Mr Blazey is hoping to complete another marathon in the future.
TopMark are planning to celebrate their successes with a cleaning giveaway.
Samantha Read, fund-raising officer for Round Table Children’s Wish, said: “Mark Blazey of TopMark Cleaning selected our charity RTCW to run the London Marathon for, which he successfully completed last month.
“As part of his fundraising, he chose us as his charity of the year and one of the events he held, was a marathon carpet clean which raised over £2,000 for the charity.
“We are so grateful for the funds Mark has raised, as this will be going towards granting the magical and memorable wishes for children, aged between four to 17 who have life-threatening or terminal illnesses.
“We are currently working with various hospices to increase our referrals by reaching the children who may not have had access to a wish. The funds raised will also help with this project, we would like to say a huge thank you to Mark for his ongoing support.”
