Maidstone Honda PCX 125 Scooters Coronavirus

HONDA has leant a hand to the NHS and its volunteer workforce this week by supplying a fleet of 20 Honda PCX 125 scooters to help deliver essential supplies to vulnerable members of the public.

The bikes are being supplied by Maidstone Honda and will be used in the Kent area to deliver prescriptions and medical supplies in the local community. The bikes will primarily be delivering to those people deemed most vulnerable at this time and those who are unable to leave their houses.

Neil Fletcher, Head of Motorcycles at Honda UK: “It’s inspiring how quickly 750,000 people signed-up to NHS Volunteer Responders in the UK. I’m delighted to see Maidstone Honda playing its part at this difficult time, despite being closed for regular business. We wholly endorse their decision to supply the scooters to boost all-important delivery capacity in the local community, ensuring those at high-risk receive the supplies they need.”

The NHS volunteer scheme has seen that many people signing up that the NHS had to pause any new applications on the 29th March, simply to allow them to process all the volunteer’s data.

Harry Pearce, General Manager of Maidstone Honda: “We’ve been a proud member of the local community since 2013 and want to do what we can to lend a hand. Those at high-risk who have been told not to leave their homes for 12 weeks have it doubly tough, they can’t shop for groceries or collect medical prescriptions so depend on volunteers. It’s these volunteers we’re hoping to mobilise with this fleet of PCXs – it’s the least we could do, and I really hope it makes a difference.”
