Rat Race Cycles in Nunhead has kindly serviced and fitted out a bike for a volunteer prescription deliverer.

Michael Peacock has been helping get medicines from Krystal Pharmacy to shielded residents in the area.

He told the News of his surprise when he took his old Raleigh, that he recently found abandoned, to the shop to have a new basket and the brakes checked on May 14.

As he whipped his debit card out the shop assistant told him it was on the house due to his important work.

“My jaw dropped. I just never expected such an unexpected act of selfless generosity,” he said.

Rat Race Cycles are giving priority to NHS staff and other keyworkers. They are based at 118 Evelina Rd, Nunhead SE15 3HL.
