Inchcape UK’s Lexus retail centre in Guildford has donated £1,550 to the Royal Surrey County Hospital’s children’s outpatient unit.
The automotive retailer, based in Moorfield Road, Guildford, provided the £1,550 grant to help the hospital to buy a much-needed new saturation monitor for the children’s outpatient unit.
The new equipment will help staff to be able to assess children’s breathing within the outpatient’s unit, so that they don’t always have to be admitted to a ward.
The donation was presented to the hospital as part of the Toyota Fund for a Better Tomorrow; a nation-wide programme of grants which Toyota and Lexus retail centres can bid for to support charities, schools and community projects in their area.
Wendy Preston, Lexus Guildford general manager, said: “The hospital is particularly close to our team’s hearts as two of our colleagues’ wives work there.
“The Toyota Fund for a Better Tomorrow is a fantastic initiative which helps us to support causes within our local communities and the donation was extremely gratefully received by the hospital.”
