Acts of kindness from friends of the Showground 27 Mar

We've seen so many amazing acts of kindness in the last few weeks to help the current Coronavirus situation, and no matter how big or small, anything helps! 

Here is a list of local Lincolnshire businesses who are 'doing their bit' to help in any way they can..

Pin Gin

Lincolnshire Show regulars and winners of our Grow with the Show competition in 2019, Bottomley Distillers (the creators of Pin Gin) have commenced a full commercial production to make hand sanitiser for those in need. Our friends over at Bottomley Distillers have said they aim to produce 10,000 units of hand sanitiser after the supermarket shelves have been emptied due to the coronavirus crisis. They have allocated a set amount that they are donating to the Louth community in need and other local groups including LIVES. Amazing work from Pin Gin!

Lincoln Gin

Matt Felgate, owner of Lincoln Gin is also producing hand sanitiser. The team at Lincoln Gin have been making quantities of hand gel from their high strength alcohol, they will be donating to those working with or caring for individuals who are vulnerable or have underlying health conditions. Lincoln Gin exhibit at the Lincolnshire Show and our annual Food and Gift Fair, we are so proud to work with such a wonderful company.
