Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland provides high quality care and support for adults who have palliative and end of life care needs. The service also extends to families and carers. It covers a 1500 square mile radius from the Scottish Border to Stainmore and Allonby to Alston. To continue to provide this amazing service Hospice at Home need to raise £20,000 each week.
Ast Signs are proud to support Hospice at Home by designing and providing the eye catching vehicle wrap for the new Peugeot Expert van. With the help of a grant from the Cumberland News, Hospice at Home were able to purchase the van, which will help transfer stock between the shops at Carlisle, Penrith and Wigton. The van will also collect and deliver donations and transfer equipment for the many fundraising events it holds.
Julie Blundell Fundraiser for the Charity said “It’s absolutely fantastic news to be out and about on the road. The van graphics were completed and kindly supported by AST Signs and without doubt the van now definitely turns heads. The van graphics include the blue and turquoise colours for which Hospice at Home is very identifiable and also incorporates lots of cheery sunflower images". Julie explained “The sunflowers were important to include as they are a national recognisable symbol of hospice care. We’re all extremely proud of our new van, it looks amazing and is already causing such awareness. We are truly humbled that our local business community have made this all possible - thank you to all”.
Look out for the eye catching van driving around Cumbria!
