Aston Martin Cheltenham, operated by the H.R. Owen Group has brought a boot-full of Christmas cheer to its local hospital, with a special delivery of presents in an Aston Martin DBX.
Making use of its 632 liters of boot space, the Aston Martin Cheltenham team filled up the DBX with toys requested by the play specialists at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital children’s ward to ensure that the presents they receive are age-appropriate and sensory for educational and health purposes. The presents provide something to open over the Christmas period, as well as a bank of gifts for the coming year.
Aston Martin Cheltenham is working with the Pied Piper Appeal, which celebrates its 30th anniversary next year. Pied Piper was formed to build a new Children’s unit for the sick children in the county, which opened in 2004. With outpatients, A&E, and the unit itself 20,000 children now pass through each year.
Vice-Chair Julie Kent said:
We are thrilled that Aston Martin Cheltenham and H.R. Owen have got involved with the Toy Appeal this year as the list was pretty large – and what a way for the gifts to arrive, too. The children have had fewer visits from outside entertainers this year. Even Father Christmas couldn’t make it last year, but the staff work hard to make their time in hospital as much fun as possible, and this visit certainly helped. The children that could come out to see it were very excited, and plenty of the nurses!
The Aston Martin DBX is powered by a new version of the characterful 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine found in the DB11 and Vantage which, when paired with lightweight aluminum construction and advanced chassis, ensures DBX drives like no other SUV. It drives like a sports car.
H.R. Owen is the UK’s leading luxury motor dealer group, representing some of the world’s most sought-after brands including Bugatti, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, BAC, Puritalia, and Rimac.
