Independent parts distributor TM Factors Hereford is helping its local community by carrying out a number of goodwill gestures for individuals and local charities supporting vulnerable people.


The business also organised a collaborative effort to help a front line nurse at Hereford City hospital, whose car had broken down and needed a new clutch, tyres, pads and discs.  Enlisting the support of Eurocars Autocare Garage to provide the repairs, TMD Friction to supply the pads and discs, Chrispins Paint and Bodyshop the gearbox, Valeo the clutch and John Wood Tyres to provide the new tyres, this incredible effort successfully got the nurse’s car back on the road, ready for her night shift.


Director Melissa Portman-Lewis said: “I have been overwhelmed by the kindness shown by local people and the motor trade and I want to continue this combined effort to go further and offer more support to those that need it most. The motor trade is making a real positive impact to people’s lives, using its expertise, logistics and generosity to provide a solution for people during this extremely difficult time.”

The local NHS is also benefiting from the use of the firm’s vans, with voluntary drivers delivering prescriptions where needed.
