Cleanology Prepares for Fourth Annual Hygiene Bank Fundraiser

Cleanology Launches Fourth Annual Hygiene Bank Fundraiser
25 June 2024

After raising over £78,000 for The Hygiene Bank in its first three years, the Cleanology Hygiene Bank Charity Evening is returning for 2024.

Held at Old Park Lane’s Hard Rock Café, commercial cleaning company Cleanology are expecting around 200 guests to attend the fundraising evening on Wednesday 9 October 2024, which will feature a live DJ, networking, refreshing cocktails, burgers, an auction and a raffle.

All profits from ticket sales will go to The Hygiene Bank, a social movement which is dedicated to eradicating hygiene poverty in the UK. 

Over 4.2 million adults in the UK are currently living in hygiene poverty, a significant increase of 1.1 million people compared to the findings in 2022. In the past 12 months, 69 per cent of those affected by hygiene poverty have had to choose between paying for food or bills and buying toiletries and cleaning products. Those living in hygiene poverty are likely to have gone without razors, laundry detergent and cleaning products, and deodorant.

Dominic Ponniah, CEO and Co-Founder of Cleanology, said: “When we held our first event four years ago, we had no idea that four years later the scale of hygiene poverty would be such that this hidden crisis has grown exponentially. I am proud Cleanology is again leading the fight against hygiene poverty and that we continue to partner with The Hygiene Bank, a grassroots charity dedicated to ensuring that feeling clean is not a luxury but a basic right for everyone in our society”.

Ruth Brock, CEO of The Hygiene Bank, added: “Cleanology has been more than a supporter of The Hygiene Bank, they are a true partner in our mission to end hygiene poverty in the UK. Their unwavering support over the years has made a tangible difference in the lives of thousands of families pulled into hygiene poverty, and as we launch this event together, we celebrate not only the progress we have made but also the enduring partnership that makes it all possible. Together, we are changing lives”.

Tickets are priced from £75 +VAT each, with all profits donated to The Hygiene Bank:
