Hiplok is to donate 100 locks to NHS workers at hospitals that have recently been targeted by bike thieves.
A special NHS blue version of Hiplok’s Original wearable bike locks will be included, with the first of the locks on their way to Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Hiplok is also launching an anti-bike theft poster competition #StopBikeThief and asking families across the world are being asked to design posters with anti-theft messaging and post them on Instagram with Hiplok family bike lock packs as prizes.
“We know these are challenging times but stealing bikes from the very people saving our lives is not the answer,” said Hiplok Co-founder, Ben Smith. “We recognise this gesture is a small token for the herculean effort our frontline workers are putting in but we do hope it will support the prevention of future thefts so that they can get to work and carry out the most important of jobs.”
