It is no secret that I, Ryan Colson, am a great lover of trucks. So when the idea arose to design a new grab lorry and use this as a chance to give back to charities and show appreciation to our fantastic NHS, I was all over this opportunity. The result, as I’m sure you will agree, is a fantastic looking vehicle that is instantly recognisable on the roads. Have you seen it out on its rounds yet? The next time you do, give us a wave! You can learn more about the truck and it’s origins below.
The newest addition to the Colson Transport fleet of grab lorries is a real head-turner, and one which holds a special place in our hearts. It was in fact my idea to switch it up from our distinctive red & white branding in order to honour a charity that means a great deal to me and my family. I wanted to acknowledge and give thanks to this amazing organisation after they provided incredible support to my family during a difficult time.
Decorated in the colours of Cancer Research UK, it’s not only one of the finest looking lorries on the road, but each job carried out in this vehicle raises more money for charity.
10% of the vehicle’s daily earnings will be donated to Cancer Research and NHS funds during the Covid-19 pandemic.
I would like to give thanks to our amazing sponsors who have made donations to Cancer Research and earned themselves a sticker on the lorry. These are:
💗 Ashfield Signs
💗 Plaza Building
💗 Oakfield Construction
💗 MV Commercial
💗 Aztec Oils
💗 LA Lightbars
💗 Wasteaway Nationwide
Ellie Colson, Director of Colson Transport, said:
“We at Colson’s are huge supporters of Cancer Research UK, especially after being personally affected by this horrendous disease. We understand how devastating it can be, not only for the person with the disease, but for everyone else around them.”
“The idea was driven by Ryan Colson, who wanted to give back to a charity that had provided such amazing support. Thank you to all who have sponsored the vehicle and enabled this to become a reality.”
Tribute to the NHS
The special edition vehicle would not have been complete without including a tribute to our incredible NHS. The Covid 19 pandemic has highlighted how amazing our frontline NHS workers are and how lucky we are to have them.
The funds raised daily will be split between being donated to Cancer Research and to the NHS.
