Help from Invopak

All of the participants on our sessions are keeping up with regular washing of their hands thanks to a very kind donation of hand sanitiser from Hyde based, Invopak.

Kinsey Petyt from Invopak – ‘Local care and charitable organisations are doing an amazing job during this difficult period. We hope that our donation of hand sanitiser will help make things a little easier.

The Jerrycans to package the sanitiser are 5L Jerrycans from our stock holding. The hand sanitiser itself has been donated by one of our customers Hybrisan. They are an Advanced Antimicrobial Specialist based in Port Talbot. Their surface and hand sanitiser is accredited for its efficacy against all coronoviruses and SARS-CoV2.

From everyone at Invopak, we wish you and those close to you, the very best of health.’

Our thanks go to Lindsay for kindly chosing Stalybridge Celtic Foundation for the donation of 10L of hand sanitiser, much appreciated.
