Thursday 9th April, 2020, Dubai, United Arab Emirates:   Jaguar Land Rover continues its efforts to support the fight against coronavirus by providing an additional 150 vehicles globally, taking the number supplied to frontline services to 308.
 
Finbar McFall, Jaguar Land Rover Customer Experience Director, said: “The health and safety of our employees, customers and their families remains our priority. As a business we are doing everything we can to support people in need around the world including vehicle deployment, cash donations and engineering expertise.
 
“This week we started delivery of 3D-printed visors, developed with the NHS for their frontline staff. We have also supplied an additional 150 vehicles globally to our humanitarian partners, of which 105 have been supplied to the British Red Cross, taking the total number of vehicles deployed to just over 300. In our 65-year partnership with the Red Cross we have never experienced a crisis on this scale. It’s reassuring to see how our combined efforts are really making a difference, helping the most vulnerable during this global pandemic.”
 
Simon Lewis, Head of Crisis Response, British Red Cross said: “We are extremely grateful to be receiving another 105 Land Rover vehicles which will mean we are able to reach more people through our programmes than possible before. During this unprecedented time, our priority is supporting the most vulnerable people. Through our local teams, we are reaching those who are self-isolating to make sure they do not face this crisis alone. We’re using these vehicles to provide practical support, for example delivering regular food and medical supplies and providing patient transport to help people get to and from urgent hospital appointments.”
 
South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust Chief Executive Glen Burley said: “We are extremely grateful to Jaguar Land Rover for their kind donation of visors to aid our frontline staff in the fight against COVID-19. The innovation from their designers and engineers is helping the NHS to keep our staff safe and protected, while they provide care to our patients.”
