Bristol Street Motors Leicester Citroen has given a welcome boost to a health education programme launched by a community soup kitchen in the city with a donation to purchase supplies.
The soup kitchen in Highfields, Leicester, was chosen to receive the donation after the neighbourhood organisation applied to the Social Responsibility Awards, a community initiative backed by Vertu Motors plc, the Group which operates the Bristol Street Motors franchise.
The donation will help support the soup kitchen to buy resources and medical supplies to enhance its health education programme. The funding will help to buy thermal blankets, an anatomy set, height and weight measures and a blood pressure monitor. The medical supplies will be used to help people know how to look after themselves and know when to seek medical advice to help prevent premature death.
Vertu Motors Plc (LON:VTU) operates as an automotive retailer in the United Kingdom. The company sells new cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles, and used vehicles, as well as provides related aftersales services.
