Chesterfield based car dealers donates van to Ashgate Hospicecare to support with ongoing refurbishment of three bedded bays

Local car dealers, Perry’s Ford from Chesterfield, have gone above and beyond for their local hospice and donated a van to ensure that patients at the Hospice were not affected by the refurbishment work. The van enabled the catering and maintenance teams to continue to provide their fantastic service and support to patients and families.

The refurbishment, which will bring families closer together by transforming and modernising the hospice’s three-bedded bays into nine individual bedrooms, giving patients a private space to be surrounded by those close to them, has been made easier by Perry’s who enabled catering and maintenance staff to get around the hospice during the main corridor closure.

Shaun Wood, General Commercial Manager, from Perry’s Ford in Chesterfield, said: “I had no hesitation in offering one of our Transits to help Ashgate during the refurbishment, we have a long-standing relationship with the hospice and always like to help whenever we can.”

Ali Ward-Foster, Partnerships Manager at Ashgate Hospicecare, said: “We can’t thank Perry’s enough for their generosity. Because of companies like Perry’s who really go the extra mile and support us, we have been able to be there for patients and their families when they need us most. On behalf of everyone at Ashgate Hospicecare, thank you so much!”
