Tiggywinkles wildlife hospital has had a new pick up truck donated to it by Toyota to help it continue to rescue animals.

Complete with Tiggywinkles branding, the Hilux Double Cab Invincible will allow the charity, based near Aylesbury, to access remote and off-road locations where its help is needed and transport animals.

The vehicle replaces a 4Runner model Toyota provided 20 years ago.

Tiggywinkles founder Les Stocker said: “We’re grateful for Toyota’s continued practical support for the work we do.

“Having a vehicle we can rely on to get our teams safely to where they’re needed, no matter what the conditions, is vital for our work.

“The new Hilux will be a great, lasting asset and will be of particular use when we need to transport the larger animals we care for.”

Toyota’s Thomas Rosselle said: “We’re delighted Tiggywinkles enjoyed two decades of faultless service from the 4Runner.

“When we heard that the time had come for the vehicle to be retired, we thought the Hilux would be the perfect replacement and we hope the charity enjoys many more successful years with its new Toyota.”
