Members Area – Chairman’s Update

CHAIRMAN’S UPDATE April 2020

Hello all LRBB members,

During these challenging times we have been busy talking to the various NHS teams in order to prepare for additional work to support the fight against Covid-19.  Our shift pattern recently moved to 24/7 and in the past few days we have been running samples from Kettering to Leicester Royal Infirmary, as part of a regional response team.

Reflex Vehicle Hire have very kindly offered to provide another van to us should it be required and we continue to monitor the situation.

A number of our regular services have been temporarily suspended as resources are re directed to the front line services managing the current pandemic.  We are though in the process of formalising an additional service, that is non Covid related and we will keep you all updated on this over the coming weeks.

Financial support for the group has picked up, despite all fundraising events having been postponed and we are very pleased to have received cheques from Royal Enfield, the Loughborough Trials Club and a masonic lodge.  These are gratefully received and will provide the necessary funding to maintain our fleet during the pandemic.

I am updating the team with regular emails and do please take a moment to read these over a cuppa!

I hope you and your families are staying safe and well.

Thanks all

Ollie Cufflin
(Group Chairman)
