A certificate of appreciation from Gulf Harbour School to CrestClean.
CrestClean North Harbour chipped in for a local school hoping to raise funds to upgrade its playground equipment, gardens and shade cover.
Held on the 1st of November at the Gulf Harbour School, the Gala was an inaugural fundraising event for the primary school. Organised by the local PTA, the day included food, drink, live entertainment, raffles and prizes, rides and games, such as Snag Golf, which CrestClean North Harbour hired. Tickets were sold to play the game and all proceeds went to the school.

“Even though the school is not one of our clients, they are in our community,” says Neil Kumar, Regional Director for CrestClean North Harbour. “We believe it’s important to help out a neighbour. That is what being in a community is all about.”
Several other local businesses also contributed funds and prizes for the charity auction, run by Ray White Manly. Overall, the Gala event raised over $20,000 for the school.
“This really helps many local kids,” says Neil. “We’re glad to have been able to help the school succeed in their fundraising effort.”

The party was held at the beautiful Hamurana Springs Reserve, on the north shore of Lake Rotorua and nearly 90 people attended, including many young children.
The food and catering was prepared by Regional Directors Bill and Claire Douglas, and included many salads, sweets and meats, with a few franchisees helping with the barbeque and showing off their excellent grill skills. View More >>
Hard Floor Care was incredibly popular in 2014, resulting in the creation of 19 new Hard Floor Care Trainers.
The number of CrestClean personnel trained at Master Cleaners Training Institute increased by more than 40 percent in 2014.
“This is just part of growth as we see it and we intend to proceed along the same growth path next year,” says Adam Hodge, CEO of Master Cleaners Training Institute.
The following numbers are not exact, as some events are still occurring, but the increase over 2013 figures shows that the training programmes on offer are popular among Crest franchisees. It also indicates that more franchisees are taking time to invest in learning specialist skills, such as Hard Floor Care and Pure Water Window Cleaning.
“We’re now doubling the number of Regional Trainers and Assessors in order to meet the growing business demand,” says Adam. “And we have introduced 19 new positions for Hard Floor Care Trainers.”
That’s almost one for each region where Crest operates. View More >>
