Loadhog, Sheffield’s reusable packaging manufacturer, raised more than £1,900 for NHS hospitals by selling discounted containers to its staff and to small companies.
During the lockdown many homebound Loadhog staff took the opportunity to tidy and organise garages, sheds or even toy rooms at home. Smaller local organisations and non-profit businesses were sorting their storerooms using the Loadhog containers.
Many staff from Loadhog’s sister company, Gripple took up the offer to ‘get organised’ but also, more importantly, to support the local hospitals. Loadhog extended the offer to all the group’s staff in Sheffield and Rotherham and to their local small companies.
There was selection of colours available in two sizes, all branded with a ‘Thank You NHS’ logo. Orders were taken over the phone and containers delivered to local Sheffield homes, always adhering to social distancing measures.
