You could soon see an ambulance with a special rainbow design in Surrey

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 6:00am 17th May 2020.

You may see some ambulances with a very colourful drawing on the side in Surrey. 

The winners of the South East Coast Ambulance service design competition have been announced, with the winner's picture proudly displayed on some of their vehicles. 

SECAmb received more than 1,000 entries in just one week in the competition which asked children aged 11 and under to submit a design which included a rainbow, NHS logo and a supportive public message.

The winning designs were drawn by:  

  • Four-year year old Alicia Worsley from St Leonards, her design will be on three ambulances in Sussex 
  • 10-year-old Riley Latham from Herne Bay was the winner for Kent
  • Six-year-old Hazel Chatwin from Worcester Park will see her design on a few ambulances in Surrey

The special ambulances are expected to be completed in the coming weeks and each winner will be given the opportunity to have a photo with their winning design.

SECAmb Operational Team Leader from Hastings, Neville Bettley suggested the Trust hold the competition:

“It was amazing to see so many entries come flooding it. It shows the strength of support out there for the ambulance service so thank you to every single child who sent a design in.

"I’m really looking forward to seeing the designs on the side of our vehicles and I know they will be very well received as they are seen out and about in the community.”
