Shops and businesses in King’s Lynn town centre have received free deliveries of hand sanitiser to help them through the pandemic.

West Norfolk gin distillery What A Hoot donated 100 bottles of its hand sanitiser to be distributed by King’s Lynn BID (Business Improvement District).

The business, owned by Nicky and Jason Crown, has been producing the sanitiser during the pandemic and is set to open a new distillery and gin school in King Street shortly.

King’s Lynn BID, known as Discover King’s Lynn, has been supporting town centre traders throughout lockdown and offering advice, information and practical help as they start to re-open.

It has also given out more than 150 packs of free signs and stickers to help reduce costs and make things a bit easier for businesses getting back on their feet.

“We wanted to do a bit more to assist with the huge task of re-opening and were thrilled when Nicky and Jason from What A Hoot approached us,” said BID manager Vicky Etheridge.

“Whatahoot have given us 100 bottles of sanitiser and we’ve purchased a supply of five-litre flagons so we can top up supplies.

“It’s also a really nice example of businesses supporting one another; What A Hoot are in the process of moving into new premises on King Street so will soon be part of the BID.”
