Manufacturer and distributor of 4×4 vehicle accessories Truckman has introduced a new scheme to support UK registered charitable organisations, which has already helped RNLI.
The West Midlands-based company has provided the RNLI’s Criccieth Lifeboat station in North Wales with one of its Truckman Utility hardtops to be used as a support vehicle for rescue operations.
Using Truckman’s newly-launched supportive scheme, the RNLI was able to save on the cost price of the hardtop. In addition to hardtops, the scheme also allows registered UK charities to receive a discount on a range of Truckman products, including everything from tow-bars to personalised car mats.
The hardtop has been fitted to one of the charity’s Mitsubishi L200 Mk8 vehicles, the L200 is used to launch smaller lifeboats from alternative locations during lower tides. The hardtop contains all the essential equipment that a lifeboat crew would need in an emergency situation, allowing them to be ready for any eventuality and ultimately helping to save lives.
Stuart Wallace, RNLI Area Lifesaving Manager covering the Llyn Peninsula, said: “The new hardtop is helping our team of volunteer crew at Criccieth perform our lifesaving operations. As a charity reliant on donations to fund our 24/7 search and rescue service any financial support is much appreciated and the discount offered by Truckman was no exception.”
Registered charitable organisations based in the UK can take advantage of Truckman’s discount scheme by contacting 01384 485405.
