ARRAN Sense of Scotland has created 15,000 bars of its signature ARRAN soap, making them available in bags of five soaps per household, to ensure all Isle of Arran residents have access to necessities that will help fight the spread of the virus.
Local people can collect their FREE soap supplies from the ARRAN Sense of Scotland store at The Home Farm, Brodick, Isle of Arran, KA27 8DD. Free soap packs will also be available through Bay Stores in Whiting Bay, Camerons in Blackwaterfoot from Friday 20th March. With the help of Visit Arran we will also be delivering to all the schools and nurseries for pupils and staff. The company is also issuing all of its staff with ‘hand care packs’ to share with families, which include hand-wash and hand cream.
Janet Russell, Founder of ARRAN Sense of Scotland said: “Together with my sons, Andrew & Duncan Russell, and our CEO Kevin Meechan we have been speaking about providing any help we can to our Island community. To that end we will begin immediate production of 15,000 x 25g bars of soap. This soap will be packed in family bags of 5 bars and available free of charge to Islanders. This first production will enable us to create just 3000 bags of soap so we ask that you only take what you need to ensure there is enough for everyone. It’s vital that in times of need we pull together and support our local communities.Given that we’re separated from the mainland, we will do everything we can to help keep local residents safe at this time.”
