Midland Expressway Limited support Midland Freewheelers

Derek Wroughton, PR & Events Manager at Midland Freewheelers stated: "having purchased our first bike, which is a fully-marked and equipped ex-Police Honda ST1300S, our aim is to go live with our service during the second half of 2010 running a fleet of four specialist motorcycles.  Each motorcycle costs up to £10,000 a year to maintain and we are extremely grateful for MEL's contribution which will go some way towards purchasing the vast amount of specialist equipment needed".

Tom Fanning, CEO of MEL added: "MEL is always keen to support local causes and we are very proud to support Midland Freewheelers in recognition of the life-saving service they will provide in the West Midlands region alongside our continuing support of Midlands Air Ambulance.  Being a motorcycle enthusiast myself, Midland Freewheelers are close to my own heart and I wish them every success for the future".

Each NHS Trust currently spends up to £100,000 on taxis and courier services each year to transport medical essentials; with Midland Freewheelers providing this service free of charge.  Should you be interested in supporting, sponsoring or obtaining more information about Midland Freewheelers, please visit www.midlandfreewheelers.co.uk.
