On 24th October 2017, Cleankill Sales Director Ian Miller attended the presentation of a cheque for £1,474.42 to the Hull and East Yorkshire division of Mind by a team of cyclists from the Hull University Men’s Hockey Club (HUMHC).
Cleankill Pest Control became involved with the event after Ian’s son, Matthew Miller, who is attending Hull University, decided to become part of the team that undertook this gruelling challenge. Over six days, the team covered 483 miles, averaging 80 miles a day. They faced many trials along the way, including steep hills, head winds and torrential downpours, but with a dogged determination, they finally achieved their goal on 18th September 2017.

Commenting on the assistance given by Cleankill, Simeon Goode from HUMHC said: “I would like to thank Cleankill for their generous sponsorship of our team, cause and ride. Without Cleankill we would not have had the necessary resources to make the ride possible. Their fantastic help meant we were able to get equipment and supplies, making the ride a fantastic experience and achievement. Thank you!”
Alongside its environmentally responsible approach to pest control, Cleankill’s commitment to the community is one of the ways this forward-thinking business differentiates itself from its competitors.
Cleankill Managing Director Paul Bates noted: “This is a fantastic achievement by these young men and Cleankill is delighted to have been able to help. Supporting charities like Mind is a fantastic thing to do as anyone can be afflicted with this terrible, debilitating disease. It good to see young men and women doing something proactive to help fight this problem.”
The HUMHC is a strong supporter of Mind, a national charity which offers advice and support to people suffering from mental health issues. They believe no-one should have to face a mental health problem alone. HUMHC became involved with local chapter of Mind after having first-hand experience of member’s suffering with a problem that can affect anyone, regardless of gender or age.
