IT’S great to hear when brokers get involved to help with the COVID-19 crisis.
So congrats to Marlow broker DriveElectric, which has assisted MG in helping London’s Haringey Council deliver to people in need.
Haringey Council stepped-up its efforts to support local communities with the opening of two major hubs at Alexandra Palace and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The hubs will be used to assemble food packs for the most vulnerable local residents.
The vehicles, which have been supplied by MG and DriveElectric, are being used to get these essential supplies to where they are needed. So far, the vehicles have been used to deliver over 700 food parcels to families across Haringey with the support of hundreds of local volunteers.
Adam Kemp, sales director at DriveElectric said:
“We have a long-standing relationship with Haringey Council and when we heard about their requirement for vehicles to deliver food parcels, we immediately got involved.
“The MG ZS EV is the perfect car for this requirement. As well as being 100% electric, it’s got plenty of room for passengers and plenty of space to carry food parcels. Coronavirus is a huge challenge to the country, and as a business we are delighted to be able to do our bit to support Haringey Council and their hard-working volunteers.”
In addition to Haringey Council, MG is also supplying up to 100 MG ZS EV battery electric SUVs to NHS organisations across the UK.
