Motor giant backs Willen Hospice campaignApr 18, 2011
The vehicle manufacturer, whose UK headquarters are at Tongwell, has provided a Vito van, liveried with the distinctive ‘Always There to Care’ Willen Hospice logo.
It will be used to move stock from the hospice’s warehouse to its ten locally-based shops, transporting event material for fund-raising activities and supporting the maintenance team.
Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicles managing director Ian Jones is pictured handing over the van to Willen Hospice chief executive Paul Hinson.
Mr Jones (right) said: “We have a long history of working in partnership with Willen Hospice and supporting them with their fundraising activities. We are therefore delighted to take this support to the next level.”
Mr Hinson said: “Mercedes-Benz UK has been a wonderful supporter and a truly great friend to Willen Hospice for many years.
“The donation of a van in our 30th anniversary year is incredibly generous and something that we were in desperate need of.”
