Colourful baby hospice bus takes to the streets in bid to raise awareness

Leamington Editorial 23rd Feb, 2019   0

A COLOURFUL Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice bus is taking to the roads of Coventry and Warwickshire.

The double decker has been given a makeover featuring the Coventry-based charity’s bear mascot and branding.

It aims to raise awareness of the hospice which needs to raise £1.4million annually to provide palliative, respite and end-of-life care to babies and infants.

It will run on bus and school services operated by bus company Travel de Courcey throughout Coventry and Warwickshire, and updates the original Zoe’s Place bus launched five years ago.




The new bus features the name ‘Lady Jane McGaffney’ on the front windscreen to acknowledge the charity worker behind the initiative.

Community fund-raiser Jane, 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 Zoe’s Place and funds to enable the care it provides.”
