Donated Subaru Forester Proves "Invaluable"

Back in June, Subaru donated one of its Forester 2.0 D XC vehicles to Yorkhill Children’s Foundation, the Glasgow-based Foundation which provides support and equipment for children and babies in need of care from all over Scotland. The donation has been very helpful to the organization that has used been using Subaru’s go-anywhere vehicle to reach inhospitable locations.The SUV’s main purpose has been to deliver Paediatric Critical Care emergency teams to hospitals around Scotland.

“The latest addition to the Foundation’s line-up is proving invaluable, giving us a speed of response that cannot be matched by the ambulance service.  It’s great to drive and extremely sure footed even in horrible weather – which we have really been testing during the recent cold snap!”, said Dr Andrew McIntyre, Consultant in Paediatric Intensive Care Medicine at Yorkhill, praising the company for its efforts.

According to Dr. McIntyre, the service has already clocked up over 4,500 miles (7,200 km) visiting every children’s hospital in Scotland. It is well known, especially around Glasgow where it is now well recognized and often commented on for the great difference to the service provided to patients.

“We’re pleased, but not surprised, that the Forester has provided so much help and assistance to the staff at Yorkhill over the past few months.  As many of our customers around the country have discovered of late, it’s often when the weather turns seriously bad that you find out just how capable Subaru vehicles really are.  The Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive system will doubtless come into its own more and more often as temperatures tumble and the snow continues to fall,” explained Marketing Director of Subaru UK, Kenyon Neads.
