A BIKE performance company has teamed up with a distillery to provide supplies of sanitiser for the local NHS and police force.

Muc-Off, based in Poole, joined forces with Conker Spirit, based in Bournemouth, to deliver the sanitiser on Friday.

Two days prior, Muc-Off launched its bottle supply programme which entailed slowing production of core products in order to be able to redivert the bottles toward sanitiser producers who are facing bottle supply shortages due to the current high levels of demand globally.

After launching the programme on social media, calling for everyone to share so the message could reach sanitiser manufacturers, Conker Spirit got in touch.

The distillery recommended sanitiser destined for the local NHS and Police force but were in urgent need of bottles.

On Friday, Alex Trimnell, Muc-Off CEO, personally donated and delivered 300 five litre bottles and pumps – usually used for tubeless tyre sealant - to the distillery so that the much-needed sanitiser can reach the NHS and Dorset Police as soon as possible.

Mr Trimnell said: “We are stoked to be able to team up with Conker Spirit by donating our packaging to help the local fight back against coronavirus as part of our bottle supply programme.”

Rupert Holloway, founder and head distiller at Conker, added: “We are so delighted to be collaborating with Muc-Off on our community spirit hand sanitiser effort.

“Two Bournemouth brands using our creative thinking and determination to help our local NHS and police force. We all need to come together to play a role in fighting back against coronavirus.”

Muc-Off are innovating and adapting their range of sanitisers to continue supporting the fight against COVID-19 both at a local and global level.
