Darryl Shields, of DTS Cycle Services in Stotfold, said: “After hearing about the bike thefts, I was approached by someone who wanted to donate a bike, if I could service and repair it. I thought this was a good idea and was happy to support our NHS staff using my skills, so I did this and also asked my customers if they had any bikes they wanted to donate for me to do up.”
In April, the Comet reported how at least four bicycles belonging to NHS workers had been stolen from the Lister Hospital site within a few days, with Lister PCSO Ron Treadwell saying at the time that “to steal from an NHS worker in these difficult times is truly despicable”.

Darryl said: “Four donated bikes have been fully serviced and repaired so more NHS staff can travel safely to continue their amazing work.”
