New wheels for charity thanks to Thrifty partnership

Bristol Sport Foundation is reaping the benefits of a new double cab van donated by Thrifty Car & Van Rental to help support the delivery of the charity’s programmes and events.

The partnership between the Foundation and Thrifty Car & Van Rental began after the company provided the use of two vans to support delivery of the 2022 edition of Break the Cycle.

Thrifty Car & Van Rental has now donated a new Ford Custom Van for the charity to use throughout the year, enabling the Foundation to raise more funds by delivering more events on a larger scale.

The van, which is decorated with Foundation branding, has already been used for the recent Corporate Netball Tournament and the Inter School Dodgeball Championships.

Ben Breeze, Chief Executive Officer at Bristol Sport Foundation, said:

“Bristol Sport Foundation is incredibly grateful to Thrifty Car & Van Rental for their very kind donation of a Ford Custom Van to support the delivery of community programmes, our inter school festivals and fundraising events.

“This van will enable us to support more disadvantaged young people, families and communities through the delivery of sport and physical activity programmes where health inequalities are greatest.”

Martin Wilson, Managing Director of Thrifty Car & Van Rental, said:

“Bristol is a key city for Thrifty with three rental locations, and it’s clear for us to see that Bristol Sport Foundation does great work for the local community and beyond. We’re proud to support the Foundation with one of our new Ford Transit Custom vans, which allows its team the flexibility, efficiency and versatility it needs to help the community even more.”



Our mission is to support the physical and mental health of the most disadvantaged communities in Bristol, and we rely on your donation to do it. Your contribution will directly fund sport and physical activity interventions for families who need it most.
