I haven’t been active on here for a long while and even when I was my activity was confined to bike building advice and the classifieds section but nonetheless I was hoping I might post in here regarding an initiative I’ve put in place this week to help at risk people with their shopping.
I’ve been organising a Vegetable box delivery service run by a group of volunteers from the Queens park area in NW London. We’ve partnered with a farmer who supplies a few of the farmers markets in London but who is based in Lincolnshire. The basic structure of this service is that orders will be delivered into London and then redistributed by our network of volunteers. We have two vehicles for deliveries that are further afield that is practical on a bike but for deliveries at an achievable distance we’d like to use bikes.
This is where I was hoping I might get a lead from this thread. There are plenty of volunteers with bikes but unfortunately no trailers as of yet. Is there a chance anyone knows of any bicycle trailers for hire or that could be temporarily donated to the cause?
We have deliveries covered for this week and likely next week as well but as demands grow cycle deliveries would be a great addition.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated! :)
And of course, should anyone know someone in need of the help I’ve included a link to the current form we have set up on Google forms. The order cut off for this week was yesterday so the next delivery will be the Sunday after next.
