A COLOURFUL Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice bus is hitting the roads of Coventry and Warwickshire.
The double decker has been given a makeover with striking yellow features including the charity’s bear mascot and branding.
It is hoped it will help raise awareness of the hospice which relies on £1.4million of fundraising a year to provide palliative, respite and end-of-life care to babies and infants.
It will run on local bus and school services operated by bus company Travel de Courcey throughout Coventry and Warwickshire, and updates the original Zoë’s Place bus launched five years ago.
The new bus even features the name ‘Lady Jane McGaffney’ on the front windscreen to acknowledge the charity worker who has been behind the initiative.
Community fundraiser Jane McGaffney from Ash Green, Coventry, said: “We are so grateful to Inspire Insurance for sponsoring the new bus as we couldn’t have otherwise afforded the makeover.
“I am absolutely blown away by how great it looks. It really stands out which is hugely important as its whole purpose is to raise awareness of Zoë’s Place and funds to enable the care it provides.”
