New vehicle announcement

Kirsty Lawrence's picture

We are pleased to be able to announce the paperwork has finally been completed on our new vehicles.
After a discussion earlier this year around diversifying our fleet we have chosen to add two of these new vehicles to begin with. One to be based north of the tyne and another south of it. We have been working hard behind the scenes to expand into new bases ahead of the additions joining us. 
Due to their capabilities we have a new training program in place too. 
Not only will they expand our fleet but also accommodate volunteers who may be shorter in stature.

New vehicles joining the fleet

For anybody that read our March issue of the newsletter you would have seen we were hoping to announce the new vehicles that we have joining our fleet. Unfortunately that has been delayed slightly but fingers crossed we will be able to let you know very soon. Once we have crossed the ‘t’s and dotted the ‘i’s on the paperwork we can let you know all their details.

Wednesday Whiteout!

It comes as no surprise that our bikes have been stood down during this extreme weather but did you know we have blood cars? Our team of drivers have stepped behind the wheels of our fleet’s cars. They will remain on shift as long as it is safe for them to do so.

Celebrating our 4th Anniversary

Kirsty Lawrence's picture

Tonight at 7pm will mark the fourth anniversary of our service becoming operational. Last year we celebrated receiving the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and we recently completed 25,000 jobs. We have achieved so many things over the past 4 years and we couldn’t be prouder! We couldn’t do it without the support of you amazing lot out there. From our volunteers, donors, our patrons, the general public and not forgetting the families of those who give their time to keep our fleet on the roads. Thank you all!

In a week that has seen the first snow fall across the North East we have seen our team reach another milestone in our charity’s history. Our volunteers have completed 25,000 jobs for the NHS since we went live on 03/02/14.

Thanks to the dedication of our committed volunteers and our supporters we are able to continue to #makeadifference.

Time to follow the yellow brick road

We're off to see the Wizard

The wonderful Wizard of Oz

We hear he is a whiz of a wiz

If ever a wiz there was

If ever, oh ever a wiz there was

The Wizard of Oz is one because

Because, because, because, because, because

Because of the wonderful Newcastle Musical Theatre Company (NMTC).

(Just be glad you couldn’t hear me singing that as I typed it. I definitely wouldn't make it into their show – Kirsty)
