Jaguar and Land Rover have now deployed 362 vehicles globally to support charitable organisations and front-line workers tackling the spread of coronavirus. Most recently, a fleet of 15 Jaguars has been supplied to support the Help NHS Heroes campaign, a nationwide effort delivering vital supplies to NHS staff. Boxes containing foodstuffs and other essential supplies can be ordered via a bespoke app before being made ready for collection at their NHS place of work. The scheme is helping thousands of frontline NHS staff and carers by providing easy access to fresh, nutritious food. The fleet of Jaguars will now allow for convenient home deliveries too.

In South Africa, the Jaguar Land Rover team has partnered with the South African Red Cross and the Minnie Dlamini Foundation to deliver more than 2,400 food packs to those most vulnerable in their society, enough to last a month, as part of the Feeding South Africa Together initiative. Jaguar Land Rover is also working closely with the UK government and has offered its research and engineering expertise, as well as digital engineering and design, printing of 3D models and prototypes, machine learning, artificial intelligence and data science support.
Jaguar Land Rover is also scaling up production of its protective face visors in a continued effort to support the fight against Coronavirus. New tooling, developed by WHS Plastics, will produce a further 14,000 visors each week for key workers across the UK. Jason Mawer, the founder of Help NHS Heroes, said: “This fleet of Jaguars will make a huge difference in our ability to deliver essential supplies to NHS staff at a time when we have a duty to support these heroes in our communities.”
