SMH Fleet Solutions has joined the fight against the Coronavirus pandemic by assisting Mazda to provide vehicles to Team Rubicon UK.

The vehicles, were supplied through Mission Motorsport and prepared by SMH Fleet Soloutions.

Martin McAuley, director at SMH Fleet Solutions, said: “The team at SMH pulled out all the stops in difficult circumstances to ensure these Mazda vehicles were available to help Team Rubicon do essential work across the UK. Mazda deserves special recognition for its on-going support of military veterans.”

The Mazda cars will plug into the command structure of Team Rubicon UK and assist in the supply and training of PPE, running mortuaries and supporting logistics for the operational team.

Team Rubicon UK is a disaster response charity that repurposes military skills and experience to deploy teams of highly skilled volunteers providing life-saving aid to those who need it most. Staffed mainly by ex-military volunteers, who all have experience in hostile and character-testing environments - they deliver life-saving aid at home or abroad.

“Team Rubicon UK is standing up its capability and bringing in our disaster response expertise to help the UK to overcome the biggest peace-time challenge it has ever faced,” said Ben Lampard, director of operations at the charity.

“We have supported Mission Motorsport since their inception,” added Jeremy Thomson, managing director, Mazda Motors UK. “The COVID19 emergency affects us all, and we all have a part to play in the fight against the virus, we see the support of Team Rubicon as an extension of our support for military veterans and an opportunity to contribute in a small way to the fight.”
