Leasedrive has re-signed with Marie Curie Cancer Care for another two years. The new contract covers 174 cars, mainly Peugeot and Renault, on contract hire or contract purchase plus the provision of short-term rental.
Leasedrive commercial director Roddy Graham said: “Marie Curie Cancer Care has been a customer of ours since 2005. It has also been one of our prime nominated charities and, given the fantastic work it undertakes by providing free nursing care for terminally-ill patients in their own homes, we have a special bond which goes beyond a normal commercial partnership.
“All charities are under tremendous pressure to maintain fundraising levels in the current climate, so we were conscious that the onus was on us to demonstrate that we were continuing to deliver real value through our totally-integrated online fleet management system, Drive:Manager and ensuring that Marie Curie had the highest level fleet consultancy input.”
Jeremy Sothcott, fleet manager at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: “When we went out to tender, we wanted to ensure that we were gaining maximum value from our fleet provider. After careful scrutiny, we were satisfied that this was indeed the case with Leasedrive from whom we will be receiving additional dashboard reporting.”
Marie Curie Cancer Care has been one of Leasedrive’s nominated charities since 2005. In that time, Leasedrive has raised over £45,000 including organising two bike rides – one between London and Paris in 2008 and one between its headquarters in Wokingham and Le Mans in 2010.
