AUTOMOTIVE industry charity Ben has been given a new Land Cruiser by Toyota.
The 4×4 was donated to Ben’s Birch Hill Care Centre in Berwick-upon-Tweed and has proved to be a lifeline for residents and staff.
Zara Ross, chief executive at Ben, said: ‘It’s fantastic that our Birch Hill Care Centre has received a gift which has been of so much practical value to our staff and residents.
‘The 4×4 has given the centre a lifeline in the winter weather conditions we have been experiencing. It has allowed us to ensure the smooth and safe running of the centre, as we have used it to transport our staff to work as well as get our residents to their hospital appointments.
‘Without the support of our industry, we wouldn’t be able to keep providing a vital lifeline to those who need our help. We are supported by our partners in the automotive industry and we are extremely grateful for this generous donation from Toyota, which has meant so much to our care centre.’
Alan Jennings, corporate social responsibility manager at Toyota (GB) plc, said: ‘Toyota is delighted to contribute towards the great support Ben provides the industry. Helping ensure ongoing mobility in all weathers is vital, and the provision of a suitable vehicle is a practical way we can help.’
