pink car charity rally

All aboard the PINK COACH

Towards the end of 2009, I entered a competition, being run by National Express, called:-

‘Bling My Coach’

Thanks to the Pink Car Rally supporters, I won the coach!! I was one of 5 finalists and our ‘coach designs’ went out to public vote.  The Pink Car Rally Coach attracted the most votes (by a pink whisker) which meant that National Express made one of their coaches PINK and entered it into the Pink Car Rally. 

our 2010 pink coach

The Pink Coach participated in the 2010 and 2011 rallies and joined legs 5 & 6 of the 2012 Pink Car Rally.  Originally, the coach was destined to be 'pink' for 3 months, but at the time of writing it is STILL PINK!!! It is a Yeomans Travel coach and is based in Hereford, and it is still part of the National Express fleet, so can often be seen travelling on the M4 to and from London.  If you spot it, do take a photo and post it on our Facebook page

Sadly the Pink Coach was unwrapped in 2013, just before the rally.  Big thanks to National Express for keeping it wrapped for so long, which provided us with a fantastic travelling advert as it made its way along the M4 corridor.  If any coach company would like to take up the mantle, please contact us.
