NURSES at Weston Hospicecare will benefit from the use of a Mitsubishi electric car for the next few months.

The charity, based in Uphill, won a Mercury competition for use of a hybrid car.

The Weston Mitsubishi dealership, based in Herluin Way, wanted to offer the vehicle to charities or community groups to help them carry out their work.

The car will be used by Weston Hospicecare nurses when they are travelling to people’s homes.

The nurses make around 9,000 visits a year, usually using the hospice’s pool cars.
