Manchester Deliveroo Rider Receives Award For Heroic Efforts Over Covid-19
A rider from Manchester has been recognised by Deliveroo for his efforts to go the extra mile for his local community during the Covid-19 crisis, after the company today announced the winners of its annual Rider Awards 2020.
Kacper Serafin, who has been riding with Deliveroo for almost three years, was awarded the prize for his commitment to riding throughout the Covid period along with founding his own business. Kacper was last year’s winner of Deliveroo’s ‘Big Pitch’ 2019, where he secured a £25,000 investment towards his business idea, Magic Suction Mugs, a mug that doesn’t fall down, to prevent spillages.
This year, Deliveroo is celebrating riders who have demonstrated heroism and helped improve the lives of others in their local community during the Covid-19 pandemic. In this time of uncertainty, the winning riders have demonstrated how they have played a vital role during the pandemic as key workers and gone above and beyond to support and provide for vulnerable members of their community.
Beyond this, many more Deliveroo riders complete extraordinary acts of service every day. They often go out of their way to help others, and the Rider Awards present Deliveroo with the chance to celebrate all their achievements. In their own way, all Deliveroo riders are heroes in their communities.
Deliveroo CEO and founder Will Shu said: “Our riders are heroes and at the heart of everything we do. They have worked tirelessly this year to provide for and support their local communities, and have proved themselves to be invaluable during the Covid-19 crisis. We are very proud of all they have achieved and the enormous contribution they make to people’s daily lives.”
