We assisted St Oswald’s Hospice in the interior transformation of a double decker bus into a charity shop on wheels. Now known affectionately as ‘Ozzie’ following a public re-naming poll.
Go-Ahead Northern, the regions biggest bus company gifted the vehicle to the Hospice. We re-vamped the interior and a new heating system and kitchen has been installed. The open plan bus now has a flexible space to use as a retail store or workshop. Available to local businesses for private hire, the multi-functional venue can host meetings as well as corporate events.
Future plans are to visit fairs, festivals and public events across the region. Ozzie the Bus will be a new tool to help the hospice raise over £7.5 million every year. St Oswald’s provide specialist care for patients with life limiting conditions.
