SUPPORT for BODMIN BIKERS

Local motorcycle group helping in the Community.

<

Bodmin Rotary Club  -  have donated Financial Support to the Bodmin Bikers to help with the great work they are doing in the Bodmin community:

Kye Smith set up the Bodmin Bikers group as a local delivery service to the vulnerable in the Bodmin community in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

This group of 16 motorcyclists, aged 16 -67, and two supporting car drivers have been delivering medications, food and other essentials, and even a birthday cake, to the elderly and others who are self-isolating.

A lifeline to many, they have captured the hearts of Bodmin people with their friendly and fun attitude. They have been nominated for a Pride of Britain Award and have already been recognised by the Prime Minister’s Points of Light award     

In a personal letter to Kye, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:

“The Bodmin Bikers encapsulate the generous spirit of Britain. These angels in leathers are flying around the streets ferrying much needed supplies to those who are isolated at this time. From food and medicine to the occasional birthday cake, every day you are using your passion for bikes to fulfil your compassion for others.

“I also applaud your meticulous care in following all the guidelines to ensure you help people safely, because it is by staying alert that we can control this virus and save lives.

“Legends of Bodmin are legends of Britain – and that is exactly what you are.”

PM Boris Johnson
