The Car company Simon Bailes Peugeot has today announced they are making all of their demonstrator vehicles available to local pharmacies free of charge to help the, meet the demand they face due to the Coronavirus.

The incredible and kind offer from Simon Bailes will enable pharmacies to keep up with the demand for home deliveries of medicine and prescriptions drugs and providing a creative way to support the local community.

Simon Bailes Peugeot who are based in Northallerton, Stockton and Guisborough for vehicle sales currently have a number of its demonstrator fleet standing idle which could be used within the community to meet demand.

They are hoping to support across Teesside and North Yorkshire.

Simon Bailes said: “We have a number of cars and vans that are normally used by customers for test drives and now I hope they can be tested another way – delivering medicines and prescriptions.

“Many of those who rely on their local pharmacy are elderly or those with long-term health conditions, which places them in the ‘at risk’ category.

“We must work together to ensure they remain safe and well by supporting those pharmacies providing this vital service.

“I’m sure, in line with many other home delivery services, it is proving difficult to keep pace with the huge demand, so I hope this gesture can make a difference.

These are challenging times, not just for businesses, and I’d appeal to everyone to do “whatever they can, even if it’s checking on those who are more vulnerable.”

Any pharmacy requiring help with home deliveries is asked to email their details to [email protected]
