A letter from Jelly Drops' founder Lewis Hornby.
We're celebrating our millionth drop made!
To mark this achievement I would like to direct the spotlight on the people and organisations who have been vital in getting us here.
Thank you to the fantastic Jelly Drops team - now 18 people strong - who’s relentless motivation has taken Jelly Drops from idea to production in less than two years!
Thank you to the 7000 customers we’ve been fortunate to serve already. We never expected to launch in the middle of a pandemic - but the amazing stories and images you keep on sharing make up for the fact that we sadly haven’t been able to meet any of you yet.
Thank you to the 35 000 people outside the UK who are still waiting so patiently. We are working hard behind the scenes to get Jelly Drops to you, starting with the US.
Thank you to the Alzheimer's Society whose expertise and support have been invaluable, we’re so grateful to have been part of your Innovator Accelerator program. We’d also like to thank all the other programs and competitions that have supported us on our mission.
Thank you to the generous people who donated to the crowdfunding campaign which helped us get started, and thank you to care champion Caron Sprake for the initiative.
Thank you to all carers, paid or unpaid. We’re all super appreciative of the job you do and we make Jelly Drops with the aspiration to make your day easier.
And last but not least, thank you to my late Grandma Pat - my Chief Research Partner. We’re all here because of you!
