He added: “We’ve had a fantastic response to our callout for sanitiser materials and we’d like to thank those who have been in touch so far.

“We’re still very keen to hear from organisations who can provide us with ethanol but we are limited in production so please be aware that we not able to extend our sanitiser delivery beyond the trusts that we are currently working with.”

The sanitiser is being given to local councils and hospitals.
