Lucas donates 10,000 litres of hand sanitizer to a variety of good causes
Lucas is donating some 10,000 litres of its alcohol-free hand sanitizer to a range of very grateful recipients – schools, wild animal parks and a world-renowned historic motor museum.
Earlier this year as part of our “Stop the spread” initiative we switched over our manufacturing capabilities to designing and making hand wash stations, and sourced a continuous supply of alcohol-free sanitizer, independently tested and certified to the internationally recognised EN1500 standard.
We are now giving away 6,000 litres of the hand sanitizer to six primary and secondary schools in Surrey run by the Xavier Catholic Education Trust to help prevent the spread of the covid virus among pupils.
We are also donating 2,000 litres to the Aspinall Foundation which operates two wild animal parks, Howletts near Canterbury and Port Lympne near Ashford in Kent. And we are donating a further 2,000 litres to the Brooklands Museum in Surrey, home of the world’s first banked motor racing circuit and which manages a large collection of historic vehicles and buildings.
These two organisations have been badly affected by having to close during lockdown restrictions and are delighted to accept our offer of hand sanitizer to help keep returning visitors safe.
Recently Lucas in partnership with Dulux donated our remaining supplies of hand wash stations to Barchester Healthcare which owns and operates almost 200 care homes across the UK.
Danny Lucas said: “I’m proud that we went to great efforts to make our own hand wash stations and secured supplies of hand sanitizer that made an important contribution to getting construction sites up and running again after the first lockdown earlier this year. At the same time selling the hand wash stations raised money for our partner, the British Lung Foundation, and we are now donating much needed healthcare supplies to organisations that will really benefit from our help.”
