Former England rugby international and Triumph Motorcycles’ ambassador David Flatman has paid an unexpected visit to a local NHS worker’s front door to say thank you for making a difference in their community during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Flatman was helping to launch Triumph UK’s #TriumphTogether initiative, recognising and thanking local heroes across the UK who have been playing their part during lockdown. From nurses, delivery drivers and cashiers on the front lines, to everyone staying at home, who are working, furloughed, retired or caring for others, this is a chance to celebrate the many different acts of kindness seen in our communities.
Triumph will be asking fans to nominate their local heroes to receive a surprise gift box in recognition of their amazing, selfless actions.
NHS front line worker Charlotte Chylewski, from Bath, was the surprise recipient of the first gift box. Charlotte was chosen by Flatman as his lockdown hero for her selfless hard work and determination during the peak of the virus. She provided an incredible service to the community, while supporting her young child.
Flatman delivered the gift box in person to Charlotte’s front door, much to her shock*. To see Charlotte receive her unexpected gift box visit: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=673352003499032
“Charlotte is one of our incredible NHS workers putting her health on the line to help save others. There’s no gift in the world that can really acknowledge the sacrifice she, and many other NHS workers are making on a daily basis, but if turning up on her door and surprising her with a prize can help put a smile on her face for even a moment then it’s worth it.”
Nominations will open today until Monday 8th June, 2020. Fans can leave their nomination on Triumph UK’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages by explaining why their local hero should receive the gift box.
Triumph’s panel of judges will select ten worthy recipients from the fans’ entries and a gift box will be delivered by the nominee or local dealer to each unsung hero. The gift will include a special #TriumphTogether award, a voucher for the Triumph Factory Experience** and a Great British Tea Hamper.
