FWC nominated for prestigious national award: supporters urged to give their backing in public vote ending soon
British Cleaning Council member, the Federation of Window Cleaners, has been nominated by one of its members for a prestigious national award. The FWC is in the running to win Best Membership Association in the National Association Awards, a category which is decided by public vote.
Members of the cleaning and hygiene industry are being encouraged to vote for the association before the 17th December deadline.
The NAA Awards celebrate the hard work of associations, federations, chambers, societies and membership organisations across all sectors. Winners are expected to be announced on 22nd April next year.
Andrew Lee, chairman and safety officer of the FWC, said: "I am delighted that the federation has been nominated for this award; it is fantastic to get this kind of recognition.
"All credit to Beryl and the staff for all the hard work they do. They always do the best they can for our members. This shows that we are doing something right."
Beryl Murray, general secretary of the FWC, says: "We are delighted to receive recognition and appreciation in this special way from one of our long-standing valued members. You really can't get a better testimony than this.
"To be in with a chance we are asking people to vote for us before the deadline. Thank you in advance for your valued and supportive vote, which could help us gain this prestigious award."
Kate Lawrence, a Director of Cleanbrite UK, made the nomination. She explains: "The benefits of being a member of the FWC are significant and it is very good value compared to other associations.
"The website is excellent, you can access current tender opportunities, health & safety advice, people are selling things... it feels like there is a proper community.
"The customer service is top class. Whenever there is an issue, Beryl and the team go out of the way to help. Everyone is so nice.
"I really hope lots of people vote for the FWC and they win. They deserve it."
