Creating Social Value in South West London

In February 2019 Mike Lister contacted JR&Co to ask for a quote for deep cleaning to The Yard Community Centre in Putney having seen the meticulous standards we deliver for our client The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew.

We were so impressed with the fantastic work that goes on at the Yard that we wanted to help.

We made contact with Mike and as part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility made arrangements for a special deep clean to take place at the end of the month.

Divisional Director and Area Manager Nilton Perea and Giovanny Sanchez visited The Yard beforehand to ensure we had the right materials and equipment to deliver a meticulously clean community centre.

On the 28th of February a team of JR&Co employees attended the Yard to carry out the clean with great feedback from Mike:

“Giovanny and his team did an amazing job at The Yard and we are so grateful to Julius Rutherfoord for your generosity.

Would it be possible for you to send through Giovanny's report so that I can show our team the before and after photos because you often do not realise how dirty something was after it has been cleaned?

We will be in touch in the near future to arrange a follow-up clean.”

We’re looking forward to working with Mike to see how we can partner with The Yard to support them with their Job Club and help provide opportunities at JR&Co for the local community.

The Yard is The South West London Vineyard Church’s ministry space on the Ashburton estate in Putney and their base for a range of community-focused initiatives including children’s playgroups, English language courses, debt courses, counselling, Job Club and Foodbank.
