Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust To Help Fund Podiatry Services

One of Glasgow’s oldest family businesses is donating a four-figure sum to Beatson Cancer Charity to assist in the provision of essential podiatry care for cancer patients.

Allied Vehicles, through the Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust, will provide a grant of £2,000 to Beatson Cancer Charity, a vital organisation dedicated to supporting those affected by cancer in the west of Scotland. This generous donation will specifically fund the charity’s highly demanded Wellbeing Services, focusing on essential podiatry treatment for cancer patients.

Beatson Cancer Charity works alongside The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre (The Beatson) in Glasgow; one of the UK’s most advanced and busiest NHS cancer centres which delivers an unprecedented level of care to thousands of patients.

The charity provides over 1,200 podiatry sessions every year, addressing critical issues which can arise in patients’ feet as a result of their cancer treatment. Chemotherapy can damage nails and the surrounding tissues, which can lead to severe infections and complications.

Podiatry equipment must be single-use, as mandated by NHS infection control policy. The past few years have seen podiatry product costs rise sharply, in some cases by almost 25%, leaving Beatson Cancer Charity with an annual cost of just over £8,000.

The Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust’s contribution will support the purchase of vital podiatry equipment and products, ensuring the continuation of this indispensable service for three months.

Claire Bradley, head of wellbeing at Beatson Cancer Charity, said:

“We are so grateful for this generous support from the Allied Vehicles Charitable Trust. Podiatry treatment is vital for patients during and after chemotherapy and this grant will allow us to continue delivering this important service to patients at The Beatson.”

Allied Vehicles founder Gerry Facenna expressed the company’s enthusiasm for the support, stating,

“Words can never truly express how important charities like this are to people going through cancer treatment. Cancer touches every family, including my own, and we are honoured to support Beatson Cancer Charity in continuing to the provide these invaluable services to their patients.”
