Vauxhall retailer Wilson and Co help our heroes with two Vivaro minibuses

Vauxhall retailer Wilson and Co has handed over two specially-converted Vivaro minibuses to Help for Heroes, the charity that helps wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women, at Tedworth House, Hampshire.

The two Luton-built Vivaros are packed
with options including the latest technology MP3 CD player, Bluetooth and cruise control.

As soon as the minibuses rolled off the production line in Bedfordshire, they were taken from the factory to Oughtred & Harrison, in Goole, Yorkshire, where they were converted to meet Help for Heroes’ specialist requirements. These changes included two additional movable seats and provision for two wheelchairs, a mechanical side and rear access ramp, and slide opening rear windows. To top it off, the interiors of the minibuses were even personalised in Help for Heroes’ colours.

“Vauxhall worked very closely with the retailer and the converter to ensure these two personalised Vivaro minibuses were suitable for this very special cause,” said Richard Collier, Vauxhall’s National Commercial Vehicle Sales Manager. “Vauxhall is exceptionally proud to be involved with the great work carried out by Help for Heroes.”

“We are delighted to hand these vehicles over to Help for Heroes,” said Steve Parish, Wilson and Co. “It’s a real honour to deliver them to Tedworth House where Help for Heroes assists so many of our wounded servicemen and women to recovery.”

Bryn Parry CBE, Co-Founder of Help for Heroes said, “Help For Heroes is all about ‘doing your bit’ and the support from Vauxhall and its dealer network has been simply fantastic. These two minibuses will make a real difference by helping the residents at Tedworth House to participate in a wide range of activities as part of their road to recovery. On behalf of all those who will benefit I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved."
