As a small Norfolk based distribution company we wanted to provide hand sanitiser to our drivers so that they could follow guidelines established by Public Health England and clean their hands between every delivery. As many people have discovered however there has not been any available in the shops for weeks.
On top of that, online,prices were going through the roof!
So we started looking for an alternative... Thankfully, we found one, but the difficulty was managing the minimum order quantity! The only way we can ensure a delivery of product is to go for a bulk order of 250,000 units, far too much product and far too much outlay for a small company such as ourselves.
So we got thinking... What if we could share the product and ensure it was distributed around to all that want it?
So the idea of crowdfunding came about. Loads of us, all wanting hand sanitiser and unable to get it, teaming together to do a bulk purchase...
This is where you come in. The costs mount up, with shipping, import duty, taxes, distribution etc but we think we have managed to come up with a reasonable price, delivered to your door... See our pledge amounts for more details...
We also want to give back to society and those most at risk on our doorstep so we have decided to donate £2000 worth of the product to 2 local charities dealing with the homeless and the elderly. This of course, is dependant on us hitting our target to bring it into the country in the first place.
