A Cornish cider company is helping a local hospital combat the spread of coronavirus by producing urgently needed hand sanitiser for free.
Healeys Cornish Cider Farm, based at Penhallow near Truro, was asked by the Royal Cornwall Hospital to help make essential hand sanitiser to help them in the fight against Covid-19.
The company is now providing 100 litres a week to the hospital in Treliske and is doing it completely free of charge.
The team posted this video on Facebook:
The government has issued advice to companies wanting to help make sanitisers during the pandemic.
People working at Healeys are following recipes in accordance with the World Health Organisation.
Healeys Cornish Cider Farm is just one of many companies across the West Country offering to help those in need.
While the team are working hard to help the hospital combat coronavirus, Joe said the future is "frightening" and "tourism as we know it" is not going to return to normal very quickly once this is all over.
