Local company selling hand sanitiser in aid of hospice

Local company, Geoquip Water Solutions, is selling hand sanitiser to raise funds for St Helena Hospice.

The Ipswich based specialist suppliers to the water industry, is selling 500ml bottles of hand sanitiser to businesses and individuals nationwide, with all profits being donated to St Helena Hospice to help local people face incurable illness and bereavement.

Sarah Wilson, St Helena Hospice’s fundraising manager, said: “Geoquip has been fantastically supportive of us for a number of years and we are so grateful to them for continuing to support us, especially during this difficult time, when we’re suffering a devastating loss of income.

“Selling hand sanitiser in aid of the hospice is such a brilliant idea. It’s so vital for all companies to have hand sanitiser available for employees, visitors etc, so it’s a much-needed product.

“We’re delighted that they’re donating all the profits to us which will go towards providing our expert care and support to patients at home, at The Hospice and over the phone.”

Mike Deed, managing director of Geoquip, said: “We are delighted to be pro-active in this ongoing project and to know that it will be of particular benefit during these challenging times.

“St Helena Hospice is a very special place that is close to the hearts of many in our local community, as it is to us personally, so it is great that we are able help in a practical way with something that could become a legacy product with ongoing fundraising potential.”

Mike and his daughter Lizzie are trekking up Mount Kilimanjaro at the end of the year, hoping to raise £12,000 for the hospice in memory of Lizzie’s Gran who was cared for by the hospice.
