RENAULT Ireland has handed over a specially converted nine-seater Renault Trafic minibus to Fatima Groups United Family Resource Centre in Rialto, Dublin 8.

Based on the Trafic van, the converted minibus will be used by the centre during the course of its work within the local community.

The centre is the representative body of residents and projects in Fatima and Herberton, and operates from community development principles, providing key services in the areas of health and wellbeing, education, employment, the arts and childcare.

Renault supported the Family Resource Centre with the purchase of the minibus and also plans to supply an electric Kangoo ZE van to the centre for use in its catering service.

Conor Dixon of Renault Ireland, said: “We are delighted to hand over this specially converted Renault Trafic minibus, as well as a Kangoo ZE van in the near future, to Fatima Groups United Family Resource Centre.

“We are thrilled to be able to support such a great organisation which does amazing work within the local communities of Fatima and Herberton. Safe and happy driving from all at Renault Ireland.”

Joe Donohoe, Projects Manager, Fatima Groups United Family Resource Centre, added: “Having our own Renault Trafic minibus will make such a difference to the many people, young and old, using our centre.

“It will make life a lot easier for us in providing quality services for all those who come into all of our programmes.

“Later this year, Renault will supply us with an electric Kangoo ZE van which will enable our café to expand its operations with the aim of creating more jobs for local people.

“We would like to thank Renault and we very much look forward to developing our relationship with Renault in the coming years.”
