Charles Hurst has announced it will open its Jaguar Land Rover workshop from 6th April to provide car repairs for frontline and essential key workers.

The workshop, located at Charles Hurst’s flagship site on the Boucher Road, will facilitate critical repair work for all makes and models of cars to help keep all essential workers on the road. Frontline NHS, health and social care workers can also avail of any labour free of charge.

Andrew Gilmore, Aftersales Operations Director commented on the decision to open the workshop:

“Charles Hurst recognises the dedication of essential workers in Northern Ireland, and we are committed to ensuring our most important workers remain mobile to carry out their critical work in this time of crisis.

I am delighted that our team of highly-skilled technicians will be on-hand to carry out necessary repairs for all essential workers – from delivery drivers, to childcare staff. Here at Charles Hurst we would like to say thank you to our frontline workers in particular and so we are offering free labour to any NHS or health and social care worker.

We’re delighted to play our part in the national effort to tackle this crisis and provide essential workers with the reassurance that we are here to support them should they experience any issues with their vehicles. We will continue to work tirelessly to provide support where it is needed.”

The move is part of a series of initiatives undertaken by Charles Hurst Group to support local and wider communities in these difficult times. Recently, the dealership announced the donation of two Land Rover Discovery models to the Red Cross in Northern Ireland to facilitate deliveries, whilst Carsmetic NI have undertaken deliveries of Personal Protective Equipment to NHS staff at Craigavon Area Hospital.
