Dunfermline Food Bank is a worthy Ramsol winner

John Thompson, admin support for Dunfermline Food Bank, receives a Ramsol Winter Essentials Kit from Leigh McKenzie of Ramsol UK, following his success in our recent online giveaway. The products will go a long way towards improving infection control for volunteers and service users at the Food Bank’s sites in south Fife.

From the very beginning of our journey with Ramsol, our aim was to provide helpful and innovative solutions that would support the nation in responding to an unprecedented crisis.

Although the situation has evolved a lot since March 2020, we’ve never wavered from that objective.  It’s hugely rewarding for us to see Ramsol being adopted by businesses across a huge range of sectors, and to know that our product is playing a part in the UK’s strategy for recovering from coronavirus.

Of course, it’s not just businesses that can benefit from innovative, highly effective hygiene systems – and that’s why we were so delighted to see a non-profit organisation scooping the prize in our recent online giveaway.

At the end of 2020 we ran a competition on our website and social media channels, calling for organisations of all types to enter and win a ‘Winter Essentials Kit’ designed to help them stay on top of infection control during the most challenging period of the pandemic so far.

The winner of that competition was Dunfermline Food Bank, a community project supported by the Trussell Trust and providing support to families and individuals in south-west Fife.  The Food Bank has 5 centres in total, with 200 volunteers covering an area of 125 square miles.  In 2019-20, the charity provided emergency food parcels to 8,126 people in that area, and has supplied many more since.

The pandemic has dramatically increased the need for food banks right across the UK and has made it even more challenging for these charities to carry on delivering help to where it’s needed most.  Dunfermline Food Bank has operated a collection service throughout the past 12 months, which has meant that hygiene at its five locations was of paramount importance in protecting volunteers and service users against infection.

We were absolutely delighted to hand deliver their Winter Essentials Kit, which includes a 22-litre Ramsol canister with gun and hose applicator, a box of 12 individual aerosol cans, and some accompanying PPE.  We know that the kit will be put to good use sanitising in and around the charity’s five centres and we’re delighted to be supporting this fantastic initiative, which offers a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable.

Sandra Beveridge from Dunfermline Food Bank commented: “Over the past year, the safety of our volunteers and clients has been upmost in our minds so we were delighted when our admin support officer John Thompson told us he had won this competition on behalf of the Food Bank!  It’s going to go a long way towards helping us keep everything safe for our clients and volunteers until we come out the other side of this situation, and giving everyone a bit of extra peace of mind.  We’re delighted!”
