Zurich Insurance and Arachas Corporate Brokers Donate New Motorbikes To Replenish Our Aging Fleet
On Thursday the 15th of March, 2018, BBE took official delivery of two new motorbikes donated by Zurich Insurance and Arachas Corporate Brokers. The two Honda NC750X motorcycles complement two bikes also sponsored last year by the same companies.
BBE’s biggest overhead is the capital cost of replacing our fleet vehicles as they age. Older bikes not only cost more in maintenance, but they also become more unreliable, proving a higher risk to the dependability of our service. The amazing generosity of the public is sufficient to keep our fleet on the road, but when it comes to replacing vehicles, it requires many thousands of Euro in one go. This is where the generosity of incredible companies like Zurich Insurance and Arachas Corporate Brokers gives vital support to charities like ours.
Commenting on the donation, Brendan Conroy, 2018 Chairman said “The generosity of both Zurich and Arachas is genuinely inspiring. Not only financially, but also in the boost it gives our volunteers who take pride, not only in the service they provide, but the fleet they provide it on. These bikes are a lifeline to our service and we are extremely grateful to both Zurich and Arachas for stepping up, yet again, and providing these two bikes that will be put to great use covering our city shifts.”
The hand-over event took place at Casement Aerodrome, Baldonnell and we were delighted that Bruce Low from Arachas & David Hayes from Zurich agreed to attend to hand over the keys to some of our volunteers in attendance.
A special thanks must go to Mark Quinn, of D15 Motorcycles, who helped to source these vehicles and got us an incredible deal from Honda that really made Zurich’s and Arachas’s donation go a long way.
