CAPTURE: Scottish SPCA in Citroen haul
Citroen are celebrating winning a bumper deal to supply almost 70 new vans to the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
The bulk of the order is for Berlingo HDi 75 manual L1 Enterprise models, with several Relay and Dispatch vehicles completing the haul.
All have been supplied by Park’s Motor Group, East Kilbride and will be used for the organisation’s animal rescue and re-homing work.
The Berlingos will be used by the Society’s inspectors, animal rescue officers and staff, who will make full use of the space and specialist equipment in their work.
All models have been customised with specialised flooring, animal cages, hand-washing facilities and search lights for night-time rescues.
Most of the Berlingo vans will cover between 20,000miles and 30,000miles annually, depending on location.
John Allan, Finance Manager at the Scottish SPCA, said: “When we considered the choice of manufacturer for this latest van order, we had no hesitation in continuing our long relationship with Citroen.
“Our front-line staff rescue and care for vulnerable and desperate animals and they fully appreciate the space the vans have for cages and the equipment we specify.
“As a charity, we also appreciate the low operating costs of these vans, which enable the Society to spend more on our core animal rescue activity.”
