THE newest branch of an award-winning home care business has switched to the 100% electric Nissan LEAF to deliver its service to the people of Hastings.
The Hastings and Rother branch of the Radfield Home Care Service opened for business a couple of months ago, serving its clients with a range of home care packages — from daily living tasks such as washing and dressing, to accompanying them on shopping trips or taking them to appointments.
Director Samuel Holmes wanted an environmentally friendly vehicle to conduct client assessments and knew the Nissan LEAF — with its zero emissions and 155-mile range* — was the car for him.
He took delivery of his LEAF — which has been specially sign-written with the Radfield logo — from SLM Nissan in Church Wood Drive, Hastings, St Leonards-on-Sea, last week.
He said: “Radfield Home Care Service prides itself on having B-Corp status — B-Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee growers — and as such I wanted our branch to be in keeping with that status. I wanted an efficient and comfortable vehicle for me, and my clients.
“The staff at SLM Nissan were outstanding, and when we expand our fleet in the coming months we’ll return, for sure.”
Jon Nash, Sales Executive, said: “We’re delighted Samuel came to visit us and chose the Nissan LEAF for his business. It is ideal for his line of work, as he goes on his regular visits to clients.
“We wish him all the best as Radfield Home Care grows in the area.”
