Novalis Ubuntu Family Vacuum Cleaner


Our vacuum cleaner, that we've had for 27 years, is no longer working - this piece of equipment is vital for our Centre.

I'm reaching out to the whole Novalis Ubuntu Community to find people, who know people, who work in companies that sell or manufacture vacuum cleaners.


Do you know any family members, friends or colleagues who have connections to a company that manufactures or sells industrial vacuum cleaners  - that could be furniture companies, hardware stores, tool manufactures like Ryobi and the cleaning services? In my research they all have industrial 60, 70 or 80 liter vacuum cleaners. If you do know someone, you have 2 options: You could speak to your friend or family member directly, and gently find out who I should be speaking to that could authorise the donation of the vacuum cleaner to The Novalis Ubuntu Institute. Then send me the details of that person and I will connect with them and ask for the donation. Or give me your friend or family contact details, send them a text message that I will be contacting them and I will then contact them directly,  I will ask them directly who I should be talking to. 


We will supply a tax certificate, so the company can claim the donation from their taxes. 

To be clear, we are only asking for connections and not for you to be asking for the donations. 


We are also looking for a small hand carpet sweeper. - new or second hand.


I really appreciate your vital help in extending our Ubuntu reach into our community.


I have included some images for you to have an idea of what we are looking for, as well as some company names who sell the vacuum cleaner,  to  help stimulate your memory of who you know. Add this topic to your next conversation your friends, family & colleagues in your next conversation.
