Staff from CMS Window Systems have helped to ensure carers and key workers can provide their services in a safe environment during the coronavirus crisis, by organising the delivery of hand sanitiser.
The sanitiser, which is produced by a well-known spirits manufacturer, is being sent to organisations in Glasgow and North Lanarkshire.
Working with the global drinks brand, who are manufacturing the anti-bacterial gel and supplying it via their distribution centre in Glasgow, CMS used one of its electric vans to deliver the in-demand product to their final destinations in emissions-free fashion.
CMS Operations Director Andrew Doris made the deliveries of hand sanitiser bottles and drums to four organisations, all of which play a crucial role in supporting local communities.
First up in Glasgow was Royston Youth Action. This organisation provides facilities for recreation, education or leisure time for young people, children and families living or working in their local area. It will need hand sanitiser to be able to reopen its much-needed and popular facilities.
Two other organisations to benefit – Northgate House Care Home in Balornock and Skye View Care Centre in Airdrie – provide healthcare and personal support to those living with dementia.
And the final drop off was at St. Andrews Hospice, which is a registered charity providing specialist palliative care to people living with life-limiting illnesses across Lanarkshire.
Andrew Doris commented: “We’re delighted to be able to help distribute this important product to those social and healthcare organisations, in our community, that need it most.
“It is also fantastic to see businesses who usually produce spirits adapting to help in this crisis by using their manufacturing facilities and expertise to make products that will keep us safe.”
