The accolade awarded by the British Chambers of Commerce, acknowledges “the incredible work UK businesses have been doing to support local communities, innovate and meet new demands during the Coronavirus pandemic”.

Peli BioThermal has been selected as a UK Business Hero following the campaign by the British Chambers of Commerce alongside the local Chamber network, which saw the company receive royal recognition with a letter of congratulations from HRH The Countess of Wessex GCVO, who is supporting the campaign.

In the letter HRH The Countess of Wessex highlighted how it has given her great pride to hear how businesses have gone the extra mile to help during the Coronavirus pandemic and stated: “It has been a particular pleasure to hear stories of how you have supported your local communities throughout the outbreak and to see you nominated as UK Business Heroes by your local Chamber of Commerce …I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your positive contributions, congratulate you on your recognition as a UK Business Hero and wish you every success in your endeavours in the weeks and months ahead as we look to the recovery of our country.”

“Bedfordshire Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Peli BioThermal and all the staff involved for their contribution and responding to the needs of the local community.”

Justin highlighted how Peli BioThermal was nominated for loaning some of its award-winning temperature controlled shippers to help with the delivery of essential pharmaceuticals direct to the homes of housebound patients during the pandemic.
