January 2020 Avon Tyres Presentation
Reflex Vehicle Hire and Avon Tyres team up to provide local charity Leicestershire & Rutland Blood Bikes with free-of-charge vehicle and tyres.
Reflex Vehicle Hire have provided Leicestershire & Rutland Blood Bikes with a free-of-charge vehicle for them to complete vital and lifesaving deliveries of urgent blood samples and other products to NHS hospitals and blood banks across the relevant regions.
Alongside this, Avon Tyres as one of Reflex Vehicle Hire’s suppliers have also partnered with the group by providing them with free tyres for all motorcycles and the van.
Oliver Waring, Managing Director of Reflex Vehicle Hire said “As a safety-first vehicle rental provider, we believe we have a social responsibility within our local community to help. Part of our philosophy is drive safe home safe, so it was an easy decision to ensure that the Leicestershire & Rutland Blood Bikes continue the excellence work they do safely for the NHS, all year round.”
Ollie Cufflin, Chairman of the Leicestershire & Rutland Blood Bikes commented “On behalf of all the members of the blood bike group, we are thrilled to have received such a tremendous donation of tyres for our fleet motorbikes and van from the team at Avon Tyres and our thanks must go to Tony Shaw for making all of this possible.”
He continued to say “Thank as well to Oliver and Lisa and all the team at Reflex Vehicle Hire for their continued support in 2020. Not only do they provide one of our fleet vans, but ongoing opportunities to broaden our reach in raising awareness of our charity, as well as technical support and advice of driver safety and training.”
The team at Reflex Vehicle Hire also nominated Leicestershire & Rutland Blood Bikes as the chosen charity at the Commercial Fleet Awards 2019. The charity was picked for the annual event which gave the group a chance to send representatives along with one of the motorcycles from their fleet to encourage public and business donations.
The night was very successful for the charity, seeing them raise a generous £2,500, along with the offer of the free tyres from Avon Tyres.
Leicestershire & Rutland Blood Bikes said “The group is operated 100% by volunteers and relies on public and private individual donations, as well as business funding to maintain the free service to our regions NHS hospitals and Air Ambulance. The donations we receive provide a huge boost in maintaining the fleet, whilst minimising the direct costs to our charity.”
