Simon Jones, founder of Volunteer Riders UK, reveals how a group of volunteers did what was right and proper in a global crisis, unlike the Conservative government
I set up Volunteer Riders UK to prevent as many families as possible going through the pain of loss that I felt losing my brother. Volunteer Riders has managed to deliver more than 10m pieces of PPE and equipment to medical staff on the frontline. The equipment has also been distributed among communities, and in private homes, schools and workplaces. We did that with people sewing, printing and manufacturing the products.
We provided all this for not a penny. We put people before any money, reward or business.
