On Monday 15th October members of Sturgess Motor group including their chairman Chris Sturgess, hand delivered five electric cars to the staff of Children’s Hospital Theatre at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

On being contacted Sturgess Motor Group knew that they could help to aid this venture.

Chris Sturgess Chairman of Sturgess Motor Group commented; ‘The Children’s Hospital Theatre at Leicester Royal Infirmary, have taken care of members of the Sturgess Family, and this was our way we felt that we could give back. It was an honour to deliver these electric cars to the children in an attempt to make their experience less daunting whilst going to the operating theatre.’

Helen Shaw commented, As a team we thought of doing secret Santa and we would all chip in and buy our patients a ride on car to take them from reception to the operating theatre. This is something that was done in the past but like a lot of things once the car broke there wasn't money to replace it. We try to make the children's experience less daunting but we all believe this is another way we could help them have a better experience, so we thought we would reach out to see if any of the local car dealerships could help by donating a car, and hoped that one or two would help.To find that Sturgess had donated 6 was just amazing.’

Members of the team and children were excited to not just see one but six electric cars, including a remote-control electric Land Rover Defender. The cars delivered were, a Fiat 500, Alfa Romeo 4C, Volvo XC90, Jaguar F-Type and Range Rover.
