Workers at Loadhog, sister company Gripple, and small local businesses snapped up containers as they tidied and organised rooms, garages and sheds.

Now the scheme is being extended to all Gripple-group staff.

The boxes, all branded ‘Thank You NHS’ are £6 and £8, with discounts for multiple purchase. They are delivered free to Sheffield.
