BP Donates Fuel to U.K. Emergency-Services Vehicles
By Maitane Sardon
BP said Wednesday that it has reintroduced its program to
provide free fuel for emergency vehicles in the U.K., as part of
its goal to help those fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
The move comes as Covid-19 cases continue to soar and new
strains of the virus emerge around the world.
The British oil major said it will supply fuel free of charge to
emergency-services vehicles in the U.K. until the end of March. The
company ran a similar program last year in which it donated more
than 10 million liters of fuel to vehicles including those from
the British National Health Service, the police and fire-emergency
The company added that it has donated 250,000 meals to an
initiative spearheaded by food-delivery company Deliveroo to
provide free meals for frontline health workers. The companies will
distribute the food free of charge to staff and volunteers at
vaccination centers in the U.K.
