DABD, a Dagenham-based charity for vulnerable people, has been handed a £1,000 donation by car rental firm Enterprise after working together to provide a fleet of accessible vehicles.

Enterprise has previously leased vehicles to DABD for door-to-door transport for people living in the borough with limited mobility.

The donation came as part of the company’s Foundation Trust, which provides donations and grants.

DABD’s CEO Elaine James said: “We are extremely grateful to Enterprise for their kind donation.

“We are looking at setting up a hardship fund for employees and drivers, offering them a helping hand if they find themselves in need or in difficult circumstances for whatever reason and the money we received will go towards getting this off the ground.”

Ashley Breeze, as Enterprise accessible vehicle division boss, said: “We hope this donation will help support their work.”
