Derby County’s mascot, Rammie, visited a Volkswagen van centre on Ashbourne Road to accept an early Christmas present which will help support his growing number of public appearances.
Imperial Commercials Van Centre has given Rammie its first brand new Caddy van to replace his older model, as part of its two-year sponsorship with Derby County Football Club.
The brightly coloured van enables the Derby County star to attend a host of school, charity and local events throughout the year in addition to birthdays and weddings. The spacious new Caddy provides enough room to transport his inflatable goal and equipment.
Derby County CEO and president, Tom Glick, said: “This is the first time we have received such a sponsorship and the partnership with Imperial Commercials Volkswagen Van Centre has proved to be indispensable for Rammie.
“We were delighted with our previous Caddy but the new model certainly looks stylish and its new features make it even more enjoyable for Rammie to drive.
“We feel very privileged and proud to be one of the first new Caddy drivers on Derby roads.”
Matthew Lawrenson, regional director of Imperial Commercials said: “The new Volkswagen Caddy has had an exterior facelift and due its energy efficient BlueMotion technology it will signify reduced running costs.
“We are delighted to strengthen our support with Derby County and look forward to seeing the stylish new Rammie on the road.”
