CJS Portsmouth sales manager Andy Baker has been awarded with a special rainbow ‘thank you’ badge in recognition for his contribution to Solent NHS Trust.

Hazel Read, facilities management support services manager said: ‘As the NHS was thrown into the unknown, and it became quite apparent that to support my teams I would need additional PPE and cleaning chemicals very quickly, I turned to CJS, my main supplier for all things cleaning.

‘Andy was always there, answering every call and ensuring that my staff and wards were protected and clean.

‘Nothing was too much trouble for him. For that we cannot thank him enough.’

CJS has provided cleaning, hygiene and PPE products for the NHS, care homes and other key worker organisations during lockdown.

Keith Churchill, sales director for CJS, said: ‘The Company is particularly proud to have been able to help the NHS through these ongoing testing times.

‘The NHS has been the backbone of the country throughout and it is their commitment and tireless support that we are all so very thankful for.

‘We are just so happy that Andy and the lockdown team here have helped in some small way.’
