Having a ball for two decades

Earlier this year, Dublcheck, a commercial cleaning franchise, celebrated its 20th anniversary of trading with a salubrious ball, to recognise the achievements of its franchisees and the organisation as a whole.

This glittering occasion was held at Chester's prestigious racecourse, with over 120 guests in attendance to enjoy the champagne, fine cuisine and quality entertainment - which came in the form of sensational reggae gypsy folk band, Duncan Disorderly and The Scallywags.

Founder Carol Stewart-Gill said: "It is fabulous to be sharing the achievements of this wonderful organisation with our franchise owners. Success only comes with hard work and grit and determination. This evening demonstrates the commitment of our franchisees and dedicated head office."

The evening centred on an awards ceremony, the highlight of which was when Len Donnelly, who joined the Dublcheck network over six years ago, won the prestigious Overall Dublcheck 20th Anniversary Award. Donnelly attained this award, which came with a week-long holiday for two in Las Vegas, for his prolonged success and accruing an annual turnover in excess of £325,000, since investing in the business.

Finally the evening came to an end with Carol Stewart-Gill announcing: "We can't thank our franchisees enough for sustaining our reputation as a high quality and committed organisation. We look forward to even more exciting and prosperous years ahead."
