In early April, ServiceMaster Clean supported Leicestershire-based charity Legs4Africa in a 800 mile, UK-wide road trip to collect prosthetics legs from hospitals, clinics, businesses and private donors. The company donated a bright yellow ServiceMaster Clean van, which was used for the ‘ColLegtion’ and will continue to be used by Legs4Africa for further projects and initiatives.
Alan Lewin, MD of ServiceMaster Clean added: “We were delighted to support Legs4Africa, a local charity doing excellent work for those in need. It was great to see the donated van being put to use straight away and we hope it serves them well in years to come.”
Tom Williams, Founder of Legs4Africa said: “It brings me great pleasure when we arrange these collegtions, the staff at each hospital are always so friendly and pleased to see the legs going where they will make a difference and not headed for the incinerator. It’s also a great opportunity to meet some of our individual donors which helps bring home a personal touch, for example hearing some of the stories from Danielle, one of our donors, about her dad and his wishes for his legs to help others in a less privileged country is really heart felt and really brings home the personal aspect to all these prosthetic donations.”
