An internationally-renowned animal conservation charity has taken delivery of 30 new Volkswagen Caddy and Amarok models to help maintain its wildlife reserve.

12 Jul 2018 | International News : U.K.

Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve in Kent works in conjunction with The Aspinall Foundation caring for 800 animals across 600 acres of multi-terrain land. Running such a vast park, which welcome thousands of visitors a year, can be complex and challenging for the animal welfare, conservation and maintenance teams, especially if they don't have the right vehicles to get around.

The new fleet will help conservation and maintenance teams get around
The brand new Volkswagen Caddy and Amarok models replace the reserve's ageing fleet and will be vital in supporting staff to roar into action at a moment's notice.

The Amarok was selected for its versatility and ability on multi-terrain land while the Caddy's safety and reliability ticked all the boxes for veterinary teams who need to respond to emergencies and carry out routine animal checks.

The JCB Group helped Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve to source its new fleet, providing financial support towards their purchase. The family-owned business, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, sells new and used vehicles across 19 sites in Kent and Sussex.

Jonathan Bischoff, Managing Director of the JCB Group, said, "We aim to actively support local charity projects and particularly admire the efforts Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve undertakes in its mission to educate, protect and conserve endangered wildlife. We are delighted that our assistance and support in procuring a new fleet of vehicles will help the charity further provide expert care to the animals."
