Tim Parr to deliver PPE as part of Bike Shed initiative
Published on 18 May 2020
We’re proud to say that our very own Tim Parr (Senior Director, Global Business Support at The Planning Shop) has recently signed up to deliver PPE by motorbike as part of a wonderful initiative by the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club.
As a keen bike rider, Tim was only too pleased to offer his support when the Bike Shed announced its plan.
The Bike Shed said:
“When it all goes wrong, it’s only right that those of us who are able to help, step-up to do our part to support the community. So when Bike Shed was forced to close it’s doors in London we decided to mobilise our community into a volunteer rider’s group, to provide free courier-style services to support the fight against Covid-19.”
“Motorcycles are used by first responders, couriers and food delivery drivers because they are fast and efficient, so we are using our bikes to collect PPE parts for assembly, deliver assembled PPE gear to front-line healthcare workers, along with food, medicine, and soon we will be distributing NHS lung-capacity testing kits, to see which unwell people might be better off in hospital than at home.”
