In tough times, the good in people (and some companies) shines through. And, that’s the case with Honda UK. With the coronavirus pandemic affecting people all over the globe, medical supplies must be distributed quickly. It’s hugely important to move these supplies to the people who need them.
Honda UK and Maidstone Honda have decided to supply 20 Honda PCX scooters to the National Health Service and its volunteers. These volunteers deliver vitally important supplies.
NHS Transport and Community Response volunteers will assist pharmacies with the fulfillment of prescriptions and the transport of medical goods. It’s Maidstone Honda’s attempt to help the NHS and local community and answer the call of the coronavirus pandemic.
Maidstone Honda PCX scooters ready to go
The scooters have already been registered and are ready for duty. Maidstone Honda says that any NHS volunteers in the Kent area needing a means of transport should contact them immediately. This can be done by phone on 01622 713950 or via their website www.maidstonehonda.co.uk.
Harry Pearce, General Manager of Maidstone Honda said:
“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.”
The PCX is the UK’s best selling scooter of 2019. Maidstone Honda says its low profile, agile handling, and large underseat storage makes for an easy riding partner for volunteers.
