Peli BioThermal’s Paul Terry’s pedal powered COVID-19 deliveries

When an appeal was made for people to help deliver essential medication for patients during the Covid-19 lockdown, Peli BioThermal’s Paul Terry got on his bike. The keen cyclist, who is director of sales EMEA at Peli BioThermal, joined fellow riders at the Banbury Star Cyclists’ Club who were enlisted to help home deliver prescription drugs to housebound people. The two-wheeled delivery service has proved to be a vital lifeline for vulnerable people having to stay home to protect themselves during the pandemic.

Terry’s personal effort is in addition to organising the loan of some of the company’s temperature-controlled products to help protect and safely transport temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products on board bikes being used for drug deliveries by volunteers from the cycling club. Terry said: “We were pleased to supply the cycling club with our Crēdo ProMed products to allow riders to use for any +2C to +8C temperature sensitive deliveries along with more regular prescriptions.

“As I also had one of our 4L Crēdo Cube products at home I rigged it to my E-bike and volunteered to get involved. It meant I was able to make several home deliveries and it was great to be able to help these vulnerable people in our community.

“This is a great initiative by Banbury Star Cyclists’ Club. It was a privilege to be able to play a small part in helping others during the lockdown and everyone I encountered was very appreciative.”
