John Grose Rescues NHS Key Worker

John Grose came to the rescue of a key NHS worker after she was involved in a car accident 

Laura Heard, 34, a radiographer at a Reading hospital, was on her way back home from her grandmother’s funeral in Essex when she was involved in an accident which wrote off her car.

The distressed mother, who has a three-year-old son, telephoned her uncle Ian Heard, a retired Ford Credit regional manager, for help. Realising that it was vital for Laura to have a car to get to and from her work, Ian contacted an old acquaintance, Matthew Wright, the Group New Car Ford Sales Manager at John Grose FordStore Ipswich dealership on Ransomes Europark, in the hope that Laura’s car could be swiftly replaced.

‘Unfortunately,’ said Ian, ‘Matthew informed me that the Ipswich branch had been closed owing to the Coronavirus epidemic. However, Matthew had a plan and very kindly agreed to help.’

Following their conversation, Matthew, together with his wife, drove to the Lowestoft branch of John Grose in order to bring back a brand new Ford Puma to Ipswich where, in the space of two days, it was delivered to a delighted Laura.

‘I think this was a great effort from John Grose, and I think it shows great support for the NHS,’ said Ian, ‘not just from Matthew and his wife, but all those in the John Grose team that got the car ready.’

After receiving her new car Laura said: ’I am so grateful to John Grose and my uncle for what they have done. It’s great to know the John Grose team really back the NHS at this tough time, it makes me feel really appreciated. Now I can get back to work and, once this crisis is over, I can fully enjoy getting out and about in my new car.’
