PCX Scooters for NHS Front Line Workers & NHS Volunteer Responders

Proud to provide NHS Front Line Workers & NHS Volunteer Responders with 20 PCX scooters to support the care sector

- Our Honda Maidstone dealership supplies 20 Honda PCX scooters to NHS Front Line Workers & Volunteer Responders

- PCXs to facilitate deliveries of medical supplies and prescriptions

- 20-strong fleet to alleviate limited delivery capacity in area impacting the most vulnerable

We are very pleased that our Maidstone Honda dealership is ableto supply 20 Honda PCX scooters to support NHS Front Line Workers & NHS Volunteer Responders with pharmaceutical deliveries in the local community, answering the nation-wide call to help the NHS help us amidst the pandemic.

Keen to lend a hand in these challenging times, we registered 20 PCX scooters for deployment by the NHS Volunteer Responders scheme, effective immediately. The best-selling PTW (Powered Two-Wheeler) of 2019 will be pressed into service to assist with deliveries of prescriptions and medical supplies to members of the local community most at risk from the virus, to stay well.

Often the default choice for couriers in urban environments, thanks to its slim form, agile dynamics and large under seat storage space, the PCX makes the perfect, easy-riding partner to NHS Front Line Workers, Community Response volunteers and NHS Transport volunteers tasked with assisting pharmacies in the fulfilment of prescriptions and the transport of medical goods between NHS services and sites. 

Neil Fletcher, Head of Motorcycles at Honda UK said: “It’s inspiring how quickly 750,000 people signed-up to NHS Volunteer Responders in the UK. I’m delighted to see Honda Maidstone 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.”

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 to both NHS Front Line Workers and NHS Volunteer Responders. 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 PCX scooters – it’s the least we could do and I really hope it makes a difference.”
