Vauxhall is further strengthening its two-year pledge to support British charity, Help For Heroes by supplying two Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer event support vehicles and a Vauxhall Movano for day-to-day hauling duties.
The Vauxhall Insignia Sport Tourers will be used to support the many fundraising events Help For Heroes organises to raise money for members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of their country. Supplied in high specification SRi Nav trim, the efficient and powerful 160PS turbodiesel model with standard colour screen satellite navigation system will help provide the Help For Heroes staff with a stylish and practical vehicle to carry them to British and European events in comfort and safety.
The Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourers first tour of duty has already been completed with support of the signature event in the Help For Heroes calendar, the Big Battlefield Bike Ride (BBBR). To assist this year's riders and those participating in future events, the Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourers were equipped with Vauxhall cycle carriers.
The Vauxhall Movano 3500 will also provide some event support but its main duties will centre on the everyday needs of transporting bulky Help For Heroes boxes and merchandise.
To ensure the Vauxhall vehicles attract even more attention for the charity, they have been swathed in the striking Help For Heroes livery.
Help For Heroes co-founder, Bryn Parry said: "Help For Heroes' fundraising events take place across the UK and Europe and a range of vehicles are needed to successfully support them. The addition of two Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourers and the Movano will be a real boon to all the Help For Heroes staff who will be able to travel in comfortable, practical vehicles that I'm sure they will enjoy driving. Help For Heroes extends its thanks once again to Vauxhall."
Duncan Aldred, Vauxhall Managing Director said: "Vauxhall is proud to be supporting Help For Heroes as it raises money for servicemen and women who have given so much for their country. We're delighted to be able to extend our support to this very worthwhile charity and we look forward to assisting Help For Heroes further."Published 7 July 2010
