Škoda Ireland is partnering with Dogs Trust Ireland, becoming the official vehicle supplier.
As part of the agreement, Dogs Trust will be supplied with two Roomsters this year to complement its current fleet of Škoda vehicles. In addition to this, Škoda dealerships nationwide will be collecting funds and raising awareness about the Dogs Trust partnership.
The two customised Roomsters will play a key role in the daily operations of the Dogs Trust team, transporting dogs to and from the Rehoming Centre in Finglas.
Speaking at the launch, Raymond Leddy, Head of Marketing, ŠKODA Ireland said: “Škoda is delighted and proud to launch this partnership with Dogs Trust Ireland. In our role as official vehicle supplier, we hope to drive awareness for Dogs Trust and to help them on their daily journeys assisting abandoned dogs around the country. Škoda will also provide support through fundraising initiatives that will be activated through our nationwide network of dealerships throughout the year.”
Mark Beazley, Executive Director, Dogs Trust added:“We are thrilled that Škoda is partnering with Dogs Trust Ireland. The spaciousness and functionality of our new Roomster vehicles are valuable assets to our daily activities. SKODA’s support is of huge help but sadly thousands of dogs are still abandoned each year by their owners so it is imperative that we continue to raise vital funds and educate the public.”
