Children have been invited to create an NHS rainbow design which will feature on the side of an ambulance in Sussex.
South East Coast Ambulance Service would like local children, aged 11 or under, to create a picture which will feature on the side of one of 12 ambulances across its Kent, Surrey and Sussex region.
They are looking for designs which incorporate a rainbow, the NHS logo and a supportive public message.
A small judging panel will choose three winning designs which will be placed on four ambulances in each of the three counties served by the Trust.
The competition was the brainchild of Operational Team Leader, Neville Bettley. He said:
We’ve had overwhelming support from the public and I thought this would be a way we could express our thanks. We see so many great pictures of rainbows as we go about our work and I’m really pleased that the Trust has been able to take this forward.
Entries should be on A4 paper and emailed to NHSrainbow@secamb.nhs.uk by this Friday (24th) at 5pm along with the child’s name, age and address, so that one of the ambulance can be based near to their home as possible.
Winners will be notified by Friday 1st May. The Trust will look at ways in which it can share and use entries which do not make the top three.
