Port Lympne Hotel and Reserve in Kent has taken delivery of 30 new Volkswagen Caddy and Amarok models to help maintain its wildlife reserve.
The reserve works in conjunction with The Aspinall Foundation caring for 800 animals across 600 acres of multi-terrain land.
The 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, it said.
The JCB Group helped Port Lympne Hotel and 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 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 it protects and deliver more exciting events for visitors in order to generate income to expand conservation efforts.”
