As mentioned in our ‘A Good Thing’ blog post, we have partnered up with the charity which connects businesses with charities in order to donate their product to where needs it most.
Since this post was published we have made donations to 7 different charities across the UK.
We have donated twenty-five 250ml peach sanitiser gels to Battersea Brownies. Brownies are the section in the Girl Guides organisation for girls aged seven to ten years old where the girls are introduced to a world of new opportunities, challenges and fun including camps, holidays, day trips and sleepovers. Our peach gels will be used throughout their Battersea unit.

The charity is for cardiomyopathy which is a disease of the heart muscle. It is a group of conditions that affect the structure of the heart which reduces its ability to pump blood around the body.
