Kudos to Brompton

Really impressed how this company is stepping up for the front line in the pandemic.

So they raised OTHER'S money for NHS staff and got the credit themselves, right?

Or they could have chosen to do nothing. I don't own a brompton but give credit where it is due, it puts a positive spotlight on folding bikes and beats reading about the ongoing doom and gloom.

They are not making $ on this, they're losing $. The fundraising isn't covering it all. I'm not a huge brompton fangirl, but I respect this.

Brompton is doing quite well during this crisis. This is a good time for bike shops as well.

I think Brompton's campaign is a very good example of business solidarity in these strange days.
