Imperial Commercials Volkswagen Van Centre has supplied new wheels to Derby County FC mascot Rammie to help him meet an increasing clamour for his services.
The Derby firm has supported its home club for seven years and said it was delighted to renew its sponsorship of Rammie for the 2016/17 season.
For the first time, Rammie will step behind the wheel of a spacious new Transporter van to help him carry more equipment, such as portable nets, cones and goodie bags, for his public appearances across the county at schools and charities.
Ashley Peden (pictured), head of partnerships at Derby County FC, said the van was vital in helping Rammie meet his fans. “There is an increasing demand for Rammie’s presence at events. Without it we would have to decline many of his appearances,” he said.
David May, head of business at Imperial, said: “The sixth-generation Transporter continues to collect awards for its flexibility, reliability and driveability. This vehicle is highly regarded across the sector, so it seemed only right that Rammie should be driving the best.”
