Adept help the Dougie Mac and Stoke City Community Trust on the road to success

A hospice and Stoke City’s community team are on the road to success with the support of North Staffordshire based Adept Vehicle Management.

The Chesterton based business has backed the Douglas MacMillan Hospice and Stoke City FC Community Trust by providing cars at heavily discounted rates.


The Dougie Mac is using its vehicle to help raise awareness of its fundraising lottery, while the football club has two cars supporting the Primary Stars team, working across North Staffordshire schools.


Donna Adams, Head of Fundraising and Lottery at the Dougie Mac, said: “We undertake a large amount of external activities to help raise awareness of the Hospice’s Lottery fundraising and the use of a car is required.  One of the ways in which we are proud to work closely with Adept Vehicle Management is to use their services to lease a vehicle.


“Adept agreed a fantastic lease rate and very kindly arranged and covered the costs of the branding of our Dougie Mac Lottery car and we want to thank them.  Adept have been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to covering many miles in our new vehicle.”


Mark Pedley, a Director at Adept, added: “It is a privilege to be able to support much needed community projects as we are based in North Staffordshire and our team is drawn from the local area.


“We have been close to Stoke City’s football in the community for some time and have seen how an association with their local professional club can inspire school children. Our sales manager Ian Phillips worked with the Dougie Mac to ensure they got the package they needed. The Dougie Mac is a special place and I don’t think there is anyone in North Staffordshire who has not got the work of the Dougie Mac close to their hearts.”
