The Albion Foundation has today excitedly announced the launch of their new partnership with JC Payne and Otis Vehicle Rentals.
Over the past 15 months JC Payne and Otis have kindly supported The Albion Foundation’s Covid Response by providing vehicles to help deliver 100,000 meals to the local community.
On the back of this success, JC Payne and Otis have generously provided The Foundation with a specially adapted vehicle for our disability department, to help transport our powerchairs to fixtures and training sessions.
JC Payne Managing Director, Neil Brandrick said ‘When you see the work that the Foundation is doing within our local community it was an easy decision for us to look to support them. Having supported the Foundation with a vehicle to assist with the home delivery of food parcels for those most in need since March 2020, becoming the official vehicle partner for The Albion Foundation seemed a natural next step. The provision of a bespoke Citroen Relay Luton to assist with the transport of the Powerchairs was something we were keen to help with support coming from across the Otis and JC Payne teams to get this ready.’
We are proud to support the Foundation and in particular the disability teams. The work done by all involved is really inspiring and hopefully all the teams can continue their successes, both on and off the pitch, once the schedule can be resumed. At JC Payne we are a Disability Confident Committed Employer and supporting the Foundation in this particular cause is an extension of that commitment.
Jonathan Ward, Head of Partnerships at The Albion Foundation said ‘I’m absolutely delighted that we have been able to secure a partnership with Otis and JC Payne. Having a dedicated vehicle to transport the powerchairs will make a massive difference to the disability teams that represent The Foundation. We’re looking forward to working with them for many years to come.’
