BURTON Albion Community Trust has taken delivery of a new vehicle from Burton Volkswagen retailer TL Darby which will be a major boost to its wide-ranging programme.
The VW Polo will help community trust staff as they deliver a wide range of health, education and sporting activities across East Staffordshire, which currently reach approximately 8,000 people a week.
Andy Taylor, head of community at BACT, said: “We have had a relationship with TL Darby for some time and this vehicle will be a big asset to our staff. It’s perfect for use when a small number of staff are going out to meetings, regionally and nationally, and will promote BACT and TL Darby at the same time.
“It’s a fantastic resource for us because, as a charity, transportation is one of our main costs.
“TL Darby is a great organisation to work with and this is just part of a larger partnership we have developed with them.”
Marco Fappiano, fleet sales manager, said: “T L Darby Volkswagen has a long-standing relationship with Burton Albion Community Trust. As a privately-owned, family-run business celebrating its 50th anniversary next year, we believe it is important to work with community-focused initiatives in our locality and Burton Albion Community Trust is one such example.”
