News from Sri Lanka

by Andrew Williams | April 24, 2019

Like many of you, we have watched in horror the news coming out of Sri Lanka this week. It seems inconceivable that innocent civilians have been targeted in such a way during Easter week. 

One of our best-loved suppliers, Lanka Kade, are based in Sri Lanka. Mercifully, as far as they are able to tell, none of their workers have been directly affected by the attack. I believe they are mostly based in the north of the island, away from big cities such as Colombo. Nevertheless, given the scale of the casualties, it is inevitable that some friends and family will have suffered injuries or been killed.
