MSS group donates 1,000 litres of hand sanitiser to Welsh charities
At a time when cleanliness can save lives, support and compliance services, provider MSS Group made 1,000 litres of hand sanitiser available to charities and communities across south Wales. To give an idea of scope, that is equivalent to almost five standard-issue wheelie bins, or 20,000 pocket-sized hand-sanitiser bottles.
Working through the National Business Response Network, 300 litres have been delivered to both Llamau, and The Wallich. These charities support people experiencing homelessness and rough sleeping. Four hundred litres have been delivered to Cardiff and Vale College, which is working to hold and distribute the sanitiser to additional charities in need.
We all need to pull together in these difficult times and it’s important we help the people in most need.Bill Mayne, Chief Executive Officer of MSS Group
Mike Walmsley, Corporate Fundraising Manager at The Wallich, said: “Businesses and community heroes, like MSS Group, have stepped up to help us – reducing the financial strain and easing barriers to the supply chain that many in our sector are facing.
We’re incredibly grateful for the 300 litres of hand sanitiser donated by MSS, which has gone to our Cardiff distribution centre, and is supplying our projects across south Wales to help our incredible frontline staff continue to provide food, support, information and reassurance to people who need our support.”
Bill Mayne, Chief Executive Officer of MSS Group said: “We all need to pull together in these difficult times and it’s important we help the people in most need.”
