With a number of colleagues currently on furlough and unable to work, Pentagon Motor Group would like to offer employees the opportunity to request the use of a company van in order to assist with volunteer work in their local community.
The company will ensure the vehicle is insured to be driven by the employee and will arrange for fuel used to be reimbursed to the employee.
In response the coronavirus pandemic, the NHS has set up the NHS Volunteer Responders to assist with non-medical tasks to help take some of the strain off the health service workers. Volunteers will be asked to perform tasks such as;
- delivering medicines from pharmacies;
- driving patients to appointments;
- bringing them home from hospital;
- making regular phone calls to check on people isolating at home.
Any Pentagon staff member who would like to request the use of a van should contact Liz Eyre and for more information regarding the NHS Volunteer Responders please see the NHS website here.
