A Moorlands business has shown a great act of kindness after staff repaired a nurse’s vehicle free of charge.
Airfawn in Cheadle offered to fix an NHS worker’s car for free as a thank you for the work she is doing on the frontline fighting against the coronavirus outbreak.
Manage director of Airfawn, Tim Cliffe, told the Times and Echo: “Someone rang me up saying that her car had gone into limp mode and could not go above 30 miles per hour.
“I found out she was a nurse at the Royal Stoke University Hospital so I prioritised it and asked her to bring it in first thing on Monday.
“I did a diagnostics check, did the repair and asked her to come back so we could go for a run to check everything was 100 per cent.
“When she asked how much it was, I said that it was free.
“At this current time and situation we are in, we ought to be looking after the people who are looking after us.”
Tim went on to say that the job all in all would have cost around £70 to complete.
He also explained how his business was doing amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It’s steady,” he stated, “We’ve got no staff in at all so I’m working completely on my own at the minute.
“I don’t let any customers into the staff area to keep them safe, I thoroughly clean the cars and wipe every touching point and everything that we have touched such as the steering wheel and gearbox and I always wear gloves.
“We’re getting in the work but nowhere near how it should be.”
Nevertheless, Tim said he hopes his act of good-will will encourage others to do the same, stating: “We’ve all got a part to play and if we can help someone we should be doing it.”
