Three cleaners, Florentina, Maria, and Mario, who feature in “To See or Not to See? Face to face with the cleaners of London”, an exhibition that opens at St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, London, on Monday. Entry is free. The exhibition is organised by Clean for Good, a company that pays cleaners the London Living Wage (News, 13 October 2017).

The managing director of Clean for God, Tim Thorlby writes in a blog: “At the heart of Clean for Good’s purpose is our ambition to see the perception of cleaners change within the market place. Often out of sight and forgotten, they are part of London’s hidden army of workers who actually make this city ‘tick’ each day.

“They are neither heroes nor victims, just ordinary people with hopes and dreams, just like everyone else. We believe that they all deserve a living wage and dignity at work. That is why we do what we do. They represent the thousands of cleaners who work in London – day and night - to make our city clean and safe.

“Do you know who emptied your bins today? Is it time to find out?

“Come and meet the cleaners of London.”
