The plug-in car will help connect the Trust, also known as TACT, to the numerous community groups and projects it supports across North Ayrshire, enabling its exper ienc ed team to deliver various services whilst reducing their carbon footprint.

Operations manager Kaileigh Brown and employability team leader Cheryl Newall were on hand to take delivery of the Golf-E last week.

Kaileigh commented: “The Ayrshire Communities Trust provides support to community organisations throughout North Ayrshire and it is therefore essential that our team can travel the length and breadth of the area.

Thanks to North Ayrshire Council’s Switched On Vehicles Grant, we are now able to do so sustainably, whilst helping demonstrate the viability of cleaner, greener electric cars to the wider community.”

Patrick Kane, sales director at the independent car and van brokers, added: “We were delighted to help The Ayrshire Communities Trust identify and source their new car. The variety of electric and hybrid cars available is ever increasing, and so we carefully went through the options with the client.”
