First Appearance of Air Ambulance Bus

09/04/2014

Chalkwell have unveiled their Air Ambulance liveried bus.

The bus made its first public appearance at the South East Bus Festival which was held at the Kent County Showground, Detling, last weekend.

A team from Sittingbourne-based Chalkwell, together with families, took eight buses and coaches – including the Air Ambulance bus – to the festival.

Said Air Ambulance Corporate & Events Assistant Julie Clare: “We are extremely grateful to Chalkwell Coaches for giving us such great exposure on the roads of Kent by having our helicopter and logo in their livery.

“This is a great way to raise the profile of the charity and remind people about the service we provide. Raising awareness is even more vital now in order to raise the extra funds needed to provide a 24-hour service.

“About 40 per cent of our call-outs are to road traffic collisions so it is fitting that Chalkwell has chosen to support us in this way.”
