VW Heritage is a local business of over 30 years founded by Brighton residents David Ward and Nickie Swaden.
Having started in the early 80s by importing VW Type 2 buses from Holland, converting them to Campervans and then selling to tourists in London, their business moved into supplying classic VW parts in 1986.
Whilst today they no longer just offer car parts for VW owners and enthusiasts based in Sussex (they export to 120 different countries) they still care greatly about the community in which their staff and Directors live.
Working with BHT has offered VW Heritage the opportunity to give something back, and support people who have been less fortunate than ourselves for one reason or another.
We look forward to building a long term relationship with Brighton Housing Trust, and hope to contribute both financially and help physically with their hard work in the future.
