Team Ineos and Sir Dave Brailford have announced its support to the company's efforts to deliver hand sanitiser to hospitals in the United Kingdom.

Days ago, Ineos announced that it was shifting its production to create hand sanitiser to be used in hospitals in need across the United Kingdom. Sir Dave Braislford, team principal of Ineos' cycling team has stepped in with racing team logistics to deliver them as fast and efficiently as possible.

Ineos is working closely with NHS Trusts and has hand sanitisers being delivered to 28 hospitals across the UK including Grangemouth, Halton, Teesside, Derby and London. The company will first focus on meeting the needs of front line medical and care services before making sanitisers available for people's personal use.

"Let's face facts, in elite sport, we work in an environment where it is an entertainment business and a lot goes to a few," said Brailsford. "That's how that ecosystem works and this feels like an opportunity where the few can give back to the lot as it were. On a normal day-to-day basis it's the sports stars and the professional performers that everyone comes to watch and support.

"It feels like the tables have changed and the performers are now the health workers, the front line staff and NHS are doing such an amazing job - they are the performers, they are the ones that everyone is admiring at the minute, and us as the normal sports industry, we are the fans and supporting and watching them. The tables have changed, and we see a greater mobilisation of those who work in sport trying to do everything they can to support the NHS and it is a real privilege. I am really enjoying it, being able to do a little something to support everybody at this time where it is most needed."
