A CAR dealership has given four vehicles to St Michael's Hospice to help nurses carry out home visits.

Vertu Volkswagen Hereford in Centurion Way has supplied four new Volkswagen Polos to the Bartestree hospice.

The vehicles will be used by the hospice’s skilled team of nurses who support patients wishing to stay at home, providing hands-on nursing in a familiar setting, during the final phases of an illness.

The deal is part of an ongoing relationship between Vertu Volkswagen Hereford and St Michael’s Hospice.

The dealership is a supporter of the charity’s annual fundraising cycling event, the Wheelie Big Cycle Ride, to which it donates funds and also provides a support vehicle free of charge.

Clare Mallender, business development manager at Vertu Volkswagen, said: “We have been a supporter of the hospice for years and will continue to look after them wherever possible.”
