    Weʼve raised £5,250 to help fund production of Hand Sanitiser.

    Ulverston, Cumbria, UK
    Funded on Thursday, 30th April 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    We are a micro gin distillery in Ulverston, Cumbria. In the light of recent events we've managed to source materials and have been given permission by HMRC to start producing HAND SANITISER. It's not like the gel you may make at home, we follow the World Health Organisation's formulation which uses 80%abv ethanol.

    Our first priority is our local hospice, St Mary's. We have also been asked if we can produce enough for other vulnerable groups in the area and we are going to do our best. As these groups are struggling financially, we are gifting them this vital resource.

    However, as a small, independent business our finances are pretty dire at the moment so we're asking if you could help us with some donations to cover the cost of the materials. Whatever you can spare we would be very grateful. As long as we can continue to source materials we will continue production. Any extra money will be donated to charity.

    We are aware that there are individuals who are volunteering in the community and they also need this product. Again, we will be doing our best to supply them with sanitiser.

    Take care and stay safe.

    Thank you for reading,

    Andy & Zoe

      08/04/2020: Hello! We've been a bit quiet on the update front as we've been struggling to source bottles and then there have been delays in receiving them. We have been promised that one of our two orders is arriving, tomorrow, so we'll be able to get them out to most of the groups on our latest list. We continue to be overwhelmed by your generosity. Thank you for helping us help others. Andy & Zoe x

      03/04/2020: Today, Sim Leech of Ulverston will setting off to conquer Ingleborough...sort of! Due to lock down he's adapted his hike to 106 times round his garden, the equivalent of Ingleborough's height! And he's doing this to raise awareness for our sanitiser project. We will keep you updated. This is the lap counting system designed by his mother-in-law. 53 pegs moved one way, and then the other! Stay safe out there, Sim and don't take any silly risks!

      02/04/2020 Hello, All. Posting an update before another day got hold and disappeared. We are sending out more sanitiser today and we hoping for another delivery of alcohol later on. We're also waiting for more bottles, due to the crisis deliveries are taking much longer, so please bear with us. Expected them today, been advised they'll be here early next week. Bottles continue to be the most difficult to source. We have heard that Wax Lyrical is now producing on a hugely bigger scale than us so do get in touch with them for details. Take care.

    Shed 1 micro distillery was launched in 2016. In 2019, we moved to The Old Calf Shed. Due to COVID-19 we've had to shut the Shed and suspend Gin Experiences. Our online shop remains open. We've started producing a limited amount of hand sanatiser.
