Vans For Bands is crowdfunding

raised of £100,000 target by 1041 supporters

Weʼre raising £100,000 to PROVIDE OUR FRONTLINE NHS STAFF WITH ON SITE ACCOMMODATION AND REST FACILITIES. We need your help to cover driver wages and insurance costs.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


At Vans For Bands we have offered our tour buses to NHS Hospitals for front line doctors and nurses to use as rest facilities during the COVID--19 crisis. We currently have tour buses parked at The Royal Berkshire NHS Trust Hospital, The Whittington Health NHS Trust Hospital, The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Trust, The North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation and Trust Hospital, and The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust.

We have more hospitals asking for us to provide tour buses as rest facilities for their staff but we have run out of money to cover the running costs of the vehicles. We desperately need your help to allow us to send tour buses out to more hospitals and to help cover the running costs of the tour buses we have already deployed. Without additional funding we cannot do this!!

At many UK hospitals there is desperate need for on-site sleeping and rest facilities for NHS staff who are working long or extended shifts or who need to get some well needed rest during or between gruelling 12+ hour shifts when going home is not an option.

We're asking for your support so we can provide these at no cost to our hospitals and amazing front line care teams.

Your generous donations will enable us to fund only the running costs for providing this invaluable service; we are not making any profit, simply covering running costs.

Please help us to help those who help us all in this difficult time.

Any unused funds will be donated to each of the hospital charities where our buses are being utilised.
