Wisbech Town Council gives a helping hand to local hand sanitiser heroes, Fen Spirits

An emotional appeal by Wisbech businessman Anthony Winterbourne for help to fund his voluntary work to provide hand sanitiser to the area's most vulnerable has prompted action from the town council.

As reported in the Citizen on Wednesday, Anthony, who runs family-owned Fen Spirits in Mile Tree Lane, has turned over his distillery from making specialist fins and vodka to creating hand sanitiser using the firm's left over alcohol.

He posted on Facebook news of his decision to provide the essential hygiene product and demand soared as supplies in shops and supermarkets locally ran out.
