Fiat Doblo Cargo Van Donated to Special Needs Holiday Trust
Special needs holiday trust, 24x7 Ltd, will use the diesel-powered Cargo 1.6 SX MultiJet at its Centre Algarve project on the Portuguese coast. Managing director Andy Mahoney took delivery of the vehicle himself on February 24th.
“This means so much more than just a van to us. Having a high profile company such as Fiat supporting us raises our profile and should encourage others to help us too. The Dublo Cargo is a superb van and will be a great help with all the building work we have planned for Centre Algarve,” says Andy Mahoney.
Built from an old holiday complex, the centre is in need of total repair and refurbishment, most of which will be carried out by willing and able volunteers. When all is done, it will have 14 bedrooms, a swimming pool, sensory garden and an animal sanctuary. What’s more, Centre Algarve is Europe’s first holiday centre to cater exclusively for customers with special needs.
“We are delighted to be able to support this fabulous charity, which is giving so much to people with special needs. There is much to be done at Centre Algarve for which a good van will be essential, so I’m pleased for the Centre that the vehicle will be a Doblo Cargo,” adds Simon Wheeler, fleet and remarketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK.
The donated Dublo Cargo will surely prove itself useful on the site, carrying construction materials and transporting the volunteers to the job site.
