Aston Martin Reading has brought a boot-full of Christmas cheer to its local hospital, with a special delivery of presents in an Aston Martin DBX707.
Making use of its 632 litres of boot space, and every available inch of space in the back seats, the Aston Martin Reading team filled up the DBX707 with age-appropriate toys for the Royal Berkshire Hospital. With members of the team having worked closely with the hospital in previous years, the Aston Martin SUV was stocked with gifts certain to go down well over the Christmas period and beyond. The Royal Berkshire Hospital’s Dolphin and Lion Ward will deliver the gifts to young oncology patients, many of whom will be receiving treatment throughout Christmas.
Jo Warrior, Charity Director of Royal Berks Charity said ‘We’re thrilled that Aston Martin Reading and H.R. Owen have so generously brought some festive cheer to our children’s ward with this enormous pile of gifts. And what a way for them to be delivered. We’re forever grateful the community around us for helping to bring more of the magic of Christmas into our Wards. The effect that it has on our patients should never be underestimated.’
The Dolphin and Lion Wards work to deliver the best possible care for their young patients, not just in aiding their recovery but in delivering them special experiences and a sense of normality. The wards, for example, have a team of fully trained primary and secondary school teachers that can create bespoke curriculums for patients to ensure their learning isn’t disrupted.
The Aston Martin DBX707 is the latest evolution of the DBX SUV, featuring an uprated 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, enhanced in almost every way compared with the DBX. The engine now delivers 707PS, capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in just 3.3 seconds. The advanced chassis – already considered to deliver the best SUV handling – is tuned even further for an even more intense experience.
