Vauxhall donates Zafira Tourer to Youthscape

Vauxhall recently presented the Youthscape Charity, based in its native Luton, with a seven-seat Zafira Tourer for the purposes of transporting youths to its new headquarters at Bute Mills. The Zafira Tourer will also be used for the purposes of facilitating training across the UK.

“Vauxhall has been an amazing support to the work we’re doing with young people in Luton. This vehicle will help us transport teenagers, staff and equipment to our activities and it’s exactly the kind of practical help we need to make a difference to disadvantaged young people,” said Youthscape’s Chris Curtis.

The Zafira Tourer was accepted at the end of September at a special ceremony coinciding with a visit from Lord Lieutenant of Bedfordshire Hellen Nellis, who expressed her support for the charity.

“The Welfare of young people should be at the heart of our communities. In my role as Lord Lieutenant I want to highlight how important it is for us to work together to find ways to help every young person reach their potential, especially those who have had a tough start in life.”

In the entrance to Youthscape headquarters sits a moving wall designed and built by artist Jason Bruges, who used Vauxhall car parts procured from the automaker’s warehouse. This is meant to represent the bond between the brand and the city.

“As you walk into the reception the wall moves with you making young people feel that they are not alone. It is such a special piece of artwork.  I’m passionate about creating site specific artwork that engages people with their environment,” said Bruges.
