Japanese car company Daihatsu has extended its support of Britain’s leading gardening charity, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
The environmentally friendlier Japanese car company, which is a founding corporate patron of the RHS, has loaned the Society two Terios mini 4x4 sport-utility vehicles.
During the summer season, the teams responsible for the renowned RHS flower shows, including Chelsea, Hampton Court Palace and Tatton Park, will use the cars.
For the rest of the year, the cars will be used at the RHS’s four gardens: Wisley in Surrey, Rosemoor in North Devon, Hyde Hall in Essex and Harlow Carr in North Yorkshire.
Daihatsu Managing Director, Andrew Edmiston, said: "We are extremely proud to be patrons of the RHS and delighted that some of our cars are now providing practical support for the society’s shows and gardens teams."
He added: "Daihatsu specialises in the production of technically superior compact cars that are less environmentally damaging, with lower fuel consumption and fewer harmful emissions. For these reasons we are delighted to support the RHS and its drive to promote awareness of the importance of encouraging greater biodiversity in our domestic gardens."Published 28 August 2003
