A cosmetics brand based on the Isle of Arran has pledged to donate 200 care packages to Jura islanders.
Arran Sense of Scotland said the island, within the Inner Hebrides, has just 212 inhabitants and has been closed to visitors since the coronavirus lockdown measures were announced in March.
Due to the travel restrictions put in place, the firm said there have been limited opportunities for the islanders to shop for necessities like toiletries.
In response, Arran Sense of Scotland has teamed up with the Isle of Jura Distillery Co. to distribute the care packages, which include five bars of grapefruit and shea butter soap, an aloe vera hand gel and a mandarin and mint body lotion.
CEO Kevin Meechan added: “We understand the challenges that lockdown restrictions are posing for some of the more isolated communities, which is why we’ve teamed up with community champions and our partners at the Jura distillery to distribute over 200 care packages.
“These items will be gifted to the local community as well as the key people leading the frontline effort to keep the coronavirus at bay.
“This is our way of saying thank you for their hard work and dedication to keeping these secluded spaces safe.”
In addition to recently donating shower gel, hand soap and body lotion to homeless people via Simon Community Scotland, Arran Sense of Scotland has also pledged to donate 20% of sales from its personalised care packages to Age Scotland.
