This year we sponsored Savannah Causer to take a month-long trip to Cambodia. Whilst visiting the country she embarked on various charity work projects including helping build toilet blocks for the local community in Beng Pae and also teaching English to students at a local school. We got to catch up with Savannah and here is what she got up to.
“My month-long trip to Cambodia in August 2018 would not have been possible without the sponsorship I received from Rozone. With their help, I truly did experience the chance of a lifetime. Cambodia is an enchanting country brimming with culture and rich in history. On my arrival to Phnom Penh the capital of Cambodia, I had the opportunity to visit the S21 Prison and the Killing Fields. S21 is a Genocide Museum, which was a former High School before it was turned into an interrogation, torture and execution centre by the Khmer Rouge back in the 1970’s. The Killing Fields is one of the many killing fields, execution and burial grounds used by the Khmer Rouge, which I found extremely emotional.
From there I went to a camp at Beng Pae, which was close to a small village. The project we worked on there, involved making concrete rings before we dug a 10-foot hole and used them as the foundation of a well. We also worked with the local people and helped build toilet blocks for their community to help improve their living conditions.
I also took part in the 4-day trek through the vibrant jungle in the Kulen National Park. The sights were incredible. We saw waterfalls and the spectacular jungle temple of Ta Prohm, as well as passing through several monasteries, pagodas, small villages and plantations before sleeping in hammocks and pitching our tents each night.
On arrival at our next camp in Beng Mealea, which is a typical village in Cambodia I was involved in making clay pots which the local people will use to collect rainwater. I also helped to plant lots of fruit trees in their jungle garden, which will hopefully be looked after and preserved for future generations. My final few days were spent in Siem Reap which is a bustling town where we visited several temples including the famous ruins of Angkor Wat.
Undoubtedly my favourite aspect of Cambodia was the people. They are the friendliest, kindest and most genuine people you are likely to meet and working in their communities was an absolute joy and privilege. I would say the best part of the journey for me was meeting and spending time with the local children in the village and teaching them English at school. To see the happiness on their faces and the enjoyment they all got from learning was very rewarding. Despite their extremely difficult and impoverished living conditions, and their unbreakable spirit and infectious optimism, I have developed an appreciation of the life they lead and have come away from this experience of a lifetime with a new perspective on life.”

Our Technical Manager Balvinder Singh, along with his family have decided to take part in the Heart Research 5K running event in Birmingham on Sunday 24th September.
The Singh family are running in aid of Heart Research UK that has been helping hearts for the past 50 years. It has been funding ground-breaking medical research after realising that patients were dying unnecessarily due to a lack of research.
A charity close to Balvinders’ heart, he and his family will be taking part in this fun-packaged event whilst trying to raise money for Heart Research UK. The 5K run is partnered with Heart Research, which means that the Singh family will have to tackle the iconic “Field of Fresh.” A gigantic inflatable for the final 500m!

Students are able to clean their chains in less than 2 minutes flat, and they marvel at how fast and clean their parts become. It’s so easy to use and the fact that it’s environmentally friendly is the icing on the cake. I don’t see why every bike shop doesn’t have one!

“The technicians really appreciate the time given to them and they like working with Rozone’s products as they are formulated with the user in mind, whilst balancing performance and sustainability."

In addition, Rozone supports some of the more technically challenging situations we are faced with by giving direct industry support as well as chemical and microbiological support.
“This can result in large savings for our insurance customers. For example, with the expert advice we receive from Rozone, we are able to support the insurance companies with invalid claims. On one job alone we were able to save the insurance companies significant funds by using the expert microbiological advice from Rozone.”

We have full confidence that the products supplied by Rozone allow us to undertake decontamination and restoration works to a highest possible level, a key service for us is the ability to tailor any product to the needs of the project they are to be applied to.
The Rozone team provides us with a great service and always supports us by ensuring we have the products we need in timely manner."
Richard Done, General Manager, Arepa
"I have worked with Rozone for a number of years and they have always supported us and recommended product to use in different situations, their technical knowledge is great and they offer support when needed. We have used many of their products and in particular the “Res Restore Clean” a light/medium pH neutral surface cleaner that dries quickly and leaves a great finish, this is a great all round cleaner that has adjustable dilution rates to take on anything from dust to a fire, as the product is diluted this saves us thousands of pounds per annum."
Paul Newland, General Manager, Relko Cleaning and Support Services Ltd
"Over the years I have worked very closely with Rozone by adapting and developing chemicals and equipment to suit best practice and environmental requirements, whilst also taking part in delivering training in the field and in the classroom."
