Kye Smith, Bodmin Bikers
I’m Kye. I work in the emergency services and I formed Bodmin Bikers. Bodmin Bikers is a delivery team for medication from doctors’ surgeries to pharmacies. We’re also a food delivery, so if you need your essentials… bread, milk.

凱‧史密斯     「博德明騎手」(Bodmin Bikers)
「我是凱。我在緊急救援機構工作,我組建了 『博德明騎手』(Bodmin Bikers)。『博德明騎手』 是一支藥物遞送團隊,可以把藥物送到社區診所和藥房等地。我們也送食物,所以如果你需要必需品(我們也可以送),比如面包、牛奶。」

The group don’t charge for delivery and was set up to help vulnerable people stuck at home unable to get essentials.

Jason Martin
We’ve been trying to self-isolate as much as possible and go out as little as possible. And Sarah, my partner, she suffers quite badly with asthma as well. So, as a family, we’ve just, yes, tried to keep ourselves to ourselves as much as possible, and these gentlemen make it so much easier.

傑森‧馬丁
「我們一直在儘可能多地自我隔離、儘可能少出門。我愛人莎拉,還患有相當嚴重的哮喘病。所以,作為一家人,我們試著儘量避免與他人接觸,而這些男士們讓這一切都變得容易多了。」

Since starting, just a couple of weeks ago, eighteen people have now volunteered, including a chef, plumber and supermarket worker.

自幾週前啟動以來,現已有18人志願加入,包括一名廚師、一名水管工和一名超市的工作人員。

Brandon Lee, Bodmin Bikers
I’m Brandon, AKA Spider-Man, part of Bodmin Bikers. People see us riding around, they wave at us. It was really nice to see. You know, to go out, make people happy, make them laugh. And I just thought, you know, give people a bit of happiness while we’re in this pandemic at the moment.

布蘭登‧李     「博德明騎手」(Bodmin Bikers)
「我是布蘭登,人稱 『蜘蛛俠』,『博德明騎手』 的一員。人們看到我們騎著摩托車,就向我們招手。看到這樣的情景真讓人高興。我們走出去,讓人們開心,讓人們開懷大笑。我就是覺得,在疫情當下,這樣做能給人們帶來一絲歡樂。」

The gang are a mix of ages, including one who has only just got his bike licence.

這夥人年齡不一,其中一人剛拿到摩托車駕駛執照。

Even though they didn’t know each other until recently, it seems they’ll be riding together long after the lockdown.

儘管他們直到最近才相識,但看上去他們在封鎖解除後將仍會一同騎行。

Dan Isted, Bodmin Bikers
After this is all over, I think we are all going to go out on a ride out. I think we are one big family and we’ll stick together, definitely.

丹‧伊斯泰德     「博德明騎手」(Bodmin Bikers)
