Suzuki GB PLC is helping to keep Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) on the move with the donation of a Vitara for charity staff. The branded vehicle will be used by SCAA staff and volunteers as they take their fundraising and life-saving message across the whole of Scotland.

Suzuki has donated use of a Vitara SZ-T model which will enable SCAA to undertake a variety of nationwide assignments across Scotland.

Nick Harvey, Director of Fundraising and Communications at SCAA, said the vehicle would prove a real workhorse for the charity and comments:

"With the imminent launch of our second helicopter seeing us operate from both Perth and Aberdeen airports, our staff and volunteers find themselves travelling further and more often. The use of a Suzuki Vitara will make a huge difference for the charity team as a support vehicle for all our fundraising, public engagement and community events,"

"Having a high-profile mode of transport such as this is a huge boost and we can't thank Suzuki enough for their generous support. They are providing us with an invaluable resource that we could never have afforded to purchase. Contributions of this kind help us to raise public awareness of our work, enabling SCAA to raise more money which results in our expert crew being able to provide more care to more people and more quickly."

Alun Parry, Head of Press and PR – Suzuki GB PLC comments: “We are delighted to assist   SCAA in this way and we hope the Vitara SZ-T will help further raise the charity's profile and, consequently, more funds for an invaluable service. SCAA has proved a lifeline for many people across Scotland and Suzuki is pleased to give something back from the Motor Industry,"

The SCAA Suzuki has already been pressed into service across the whole of Scotland - from the Borders to the Highlands - with the charity team loving their impressive new mode of transport.
