QPR in the Community Trust are delighted to announce an exciting partnership with The Bike Shed, which will see us becoming a unique member of their Community Response team.
The Bike Shed launched a community response group back in March, on the back of the country being placed into lockdown and have seen over 1,200 volunteers already signed up to the voluntary service.
Working alongside the NHS, the Bike Shed have been able to deliver Oxygen Saturation meters to those who are affected with COVID-19, to determine whether or not they are suffering from undetected hypoxia and should be in hospital for urgent, life-saving-treatment.
This is where you, the Rangers fans come into action as we have paired up with the Bike Shed and are excited to launch “The QPR Angels”.
The QPR Angels is our very own biking response group, which will be made up of any biking R’s fans who simply want to help the local community, through the delivery will of vital items, to the most vulnerable people, including: Medication, Oxygen readers, help provide necessary welfare checks and much more.
We will be working around the west and south west London area, so we can deliver the vital oximeters and medication to vulnerable people in the community, as well as representing QPR with your very own QPR branded bib.
Dutch Van Someren, founder of the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club, praised the initiative, by telling www.qpr.co.uk: “The Bike Shed and motorcycle community have always been strong, connected and socially responsible and adding QPR in the Community Trust only furthers our commitment to helping the local area.
“Our Bike Shed Community Response task force have been the perfect partners in completing this urgent service and the QPR angels will allow us to develop the service we currently provide, by targeting the west London area in more detail and we can’t wait to get the service going.”
Whilst Doctor Sharon Raymond, who has been at the forefront response, praised the initiative, by telling www.qpr.co.uk: “QPR in the Community Trust have been providing a huge amount of support to our organisation, to the Urgent Oximeter response and that you want to help in any way that you can, to make the service as good as it can be for the benefit of Londoners.
“We need help delivering the equipment and the more help we can get, the more we will be able to provide important care to vulnerable people who may not be able to get it.
“This can help save lives of many local residents and we urge you to support it as much as you can.”
