A memorial service for Colin Hasson, Vice President of BICSc, will be held to commemorate his life and contribution.

The Life Vice President of The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) died in early April will have a memorial service later this month.

A funeral service was held on the 6 May at St Mary’s Church in East Haddon. This was attended by many friends, family and industry figures.

Colin Hasson was seen as a stalwart of the Institute, joining the organisation 38 years ago in 1977. He was a champion of the cleaning industry, always taking pride in his achievements and was highly respected by his peers and colleagues. Those who knew him well considered him a mentor as well as a friend. Although being unwell for some time, Colin Hasson attended the BICSc Council meeting in January this year where his contribution was a valued one.

The Institute has planned a memorial service to celebrate Colin’s life; it will also give those who could not attend his funeral a chance to mark their respects for a key industry figure.

The memorial service will be held on Friday, 19 June 2015 at 14:30 in St Olave's Church, London

For further information, e-mail: to confirm numbers. There will be light refreshments after the memorial service.
