Bassetts take OitC further

One of the UK’s biggest car and van dealers, Bassetts, are helping Ospreys in the Community reach more people across the region by providing the charitable foundation with two brand new Citroen Vans.

In addition to the two C3 Aircrosses Bassetts Citroen have alreadyprovided for Ospreys in the Community, the charity’s official vehicle partners recently presented the team with two new vans, a Citroen Berlingo and Citroen Dispatch.

The four new specially branded vehicles from Bassetts Citroen will mean that staff are able to get out across the region and work with more people even more often. The Citroen Dispatch and Berlingo will be used to transport both staff and equipment to schools, rugby clubs and events. The Dispatch, with its 1400kg payload and over 4m load length means that even bigger pieces of rugby equipment can be taken out on the road than ever before.

Paul Whapham, Head of Community, Ospreys Region, remarked on the partnership:

“We’re incredible grateful to Bassetts Citroen for their support and delighted to have them on board as our official vehicle partners. Their provision of the four vehicles, especially the two new vans, is so important to us and we really wouldn’t be able to do the work that we do without them. 

“Bassetts are one of the largest car dealerships in the UK but their ethos is still very much centred around the local communities and people, making them a perfect partner for ourselves. They have really understood our needs as a charity and helped us to get exactly what worked best for us."

Sam Thomas, Sales Manager, Bassetts Citroen, added:

“We’re delighted to have been able to further support Ospreys in the Community by providing them with the Citroen Dispatch and Berlingo vans in addition to the C3’s. We’re very proud to be official vehicle partners of such a hardworking charity and it’s a pleasure to see the distinctive vehicles around South Wales supporting people in so many different ways.”
