SHED 1 distillery in Barrow have donated £2,000 to St Mary’s Hospice in Ulverston and Barrow Foodbank.

Andy Arnold-Bennett, who co-owns Shed 1 said: “We started a business and people were very supportive of us, so it’s a matter of giving back to people.”

Ann Mills, manager at the Barrow foodbank said: “Unfortunately the food levels are diminishing year by year, so donations from businesses like Shed 1 are so important.

“The foodbank is run for the community, and without the community supporting us there is no foodbank.”

In two years Shed 1 managed to grow a thriving business from a distillery in their back yard.
