Whilst we at the club are doing all we can to support the community in these testing times, we are proud to share the news that some of our vital club partners are undertaking to assist everyone through this period.
Soper of Lincoln are helping by servicing the BMW X5 which is used as a critical care car for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance. The car is vital to the Air Ambulance service as it is utilised when the helicopter is unable to fly due to adverse weather conditions or when any incidents occur close to their base at RAF Waddington.
Soper are also supporting other key workers by opening a hotline with a BMW technician on standby for any key workers who are having any issues with their vehicles, ensuring they can get back onto the road as soon as possible to return to work and continue their fantastic work.
Meanwhile, Doddington Hall’s delivery service of food to vulnerable customers continues thanks to the help of with Soper of Lincoln Mini who have provided them with a Mini to deliver the orders to those who are unable to get out to purchase supplies.
Elsewhere in the City, Lincolnshire Co-op is working with the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum Communities and Volunteer Co-ordination Cell, which is co-ordinating the voluntary effort county-wide in response to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
With the Forum’s help, the Society has mapped out each of its food stores and pharmacies to a community group which can pick up essential groceries or prescriptions and take them to isolated people in the area.

Members of the group will be given a pass to enable them to pick up essential groceries like milk, bread, butter, pasta, toilet rolls and paracetamol from food stores (subject to availability) and prescriptions and medical supplies from pharmacies.
