Yorkshire Gin Distillery Supports Autism Charity in fight against Covid-19

17th April 2020

Cooper King has switched production to hand sanitiser, providing vital supplies to Autism Plus.

Cooper King Distillery has provided essential supplies of hand sanitiser to help Autism Plus continue to safely support individuals with autism in Yorkshire.

Autism Plus provide 24 hour, round the clock support for adults and young people with autism, learning disabilities and complex needs in residential living and support in individuals own homes. Due to the nature of support provided by the charity, essential supplies of hand sanitiser and PPE were running low. Cooper King came to the rescue and offered a vital donation of hand sanitiser produced in the factory that was home to gin production.

Co-Founder & Director, Chris Jaume said: “As a distillery focused on both environmental and social sustainability, it has been a pleasure putting our skills and alcohol to good use, supplying Autism Plus with hand sanitiser to keep their carers and individuals they support safe. The more positive news stories like this out there, the easier we’ll all get through the next few months.” Christine Lunney from Autism Plus added “We can’t think Chris and Cooper King distillery enough for their generous support which has meant we have supplies of hand sanitiser and we are able to keep our staff and the people we support safe.”
