Total Clean gives back
In Sues Name
“In Sue’s Name” is a registered charity based locally to Total Clean’s North London office. It was set up by the father of a woman who died in 2011 aged 42, after a short battle with brain cancer.
Brain cancer kills more people under 45 than any other form of cancer, yet attracts a disproportionately low 1% of the funds raised by Cancer Research. In Sue’s Name aims to raise funds to help further research into the causes of brain cancer, and solutions to help sufferers and their families.
Children with Cancer UK
Children with Cancer is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against all childhood cancers.
Funds raised by the charity go towards funding life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancers, funding innovative welfare projects to provide better care for young cancer patients and their families, campaigning to raise awareness of childhood cancers to protect more children and improving the lives of young cancer patients, today and for future generations.
Total Clean was involved with Children with Cancer for over 5 years, supporting them with a commercial arrangement that generated over £2,000 per year in charitable donations.
“Total Clean provided cleaning services to Children with Cancer for over 5 years, says Amy Phelps of the charity. “Carlos understood that we needed a cost-effective solution for our office. To reflect this, Total Clean generously provided a number of days of contract cleaning services at no cost annually, allowing us to enjoy a hygienic environment and put maximum funds towards our charitable work”Visit their website
World Child Cancer
World Child Cancer is a London-based charity whose aim is to help some of the poorest children around the world access cancer diagnosis and care.

Through these partnerships, valuable expertise is shared to help build and develop the capacity and knowledge of local doctors and nurses.
World Child Cancer also fund awareness programmes, support treatment costs, ward equipment and essential staff posts, and advocate with policy makers. They also help to build the resilience of families during an extremely difficult time. Total Clean provided a number of days’ cleaning per year at no cost to World Child Cancer. Finance Director Rebecca Ross says “We worked with Total Clean for over 3 years and were very pleased with the level of cleaning provided. The cleaners were efficient and we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Total Clean to others.”Visit their website

Hope for Gabriel
Hope for Gabriel is a charity set up by the parents of a little boy who was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy five years ago. The charity is based in North London, near to Total Clean’s head office. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a progressive muscle wasting condition for which there is currently no cure. Duchenne sufferers lose the ability to walk between the ages of 8 and 12 years old, and also the use of their arms and muscles in the upper body. Gradually, all muscles in the body deteriorate, affecting the heart and lungs as well, reducing life expectancy to late teens to mid twenties.
We were delighted to support Hope for Gabriel’s Charity Ball 2017 and wish them all the best with their future fundraising efforts.Visit their website
Leila’s VBT Spinal Surgery
Leila Bennadi is an elite gymnast who has competed at both the English and British Championships. Sadly, Leila was recently diagnosed with Scoliosis which, if left untreated, would not only end her gymnastic career, but would also be life-changing. Worryingly, the rate of progression of the curve in Leila’s spine means that she may soon be outside the parameters for treatment, so needs to be treated immediately. Treatment options in the UK are limited for Leila but there is a breakthrough treatment in the US and Europe which could be her only hope.
We were delighted to donate to the Leila’s gofundme campaign to support her treatment.Visit their website
