Ambulance adoption

Each of our 36 ambulances are adopted by a local Primary or First School. They create the brilliant artwork for the back and name each ambulance too.

Our new fleet of ambulances are helping patients in Cumbria and Whitehaven get to and from hospital for their Chemotherapy and / or Radiotherapy – But each ambulance needs a name! If your school can adopt a vehicle please get in touch! To be clear, there is absolutely no charge to the school. Our charity covers the design, printing and application costs of the vinyl graphics onto the ambulance.
