Van Convoy for the 72nd Birthday of the NHS
Vanners and The Van Insurer celebrate 72 years of the NHS
Sunday the 5th July 2020 was the 72nd birthday of the NHS. We were invited by the Vans United Facebook group to head along to Burton on Trent to join them in a van convoy to celebrate and to say thank you to the NHS for their continued work during COVID-19.
Obviously, we couldn’t say no to that, so on Sunday we travelled north to join the dedicated vanners in time for a 16:15 kick-off. The 35-strong convoy departed from The Albion Public House at 4:15 pm, heading off on a route that took them past various care homes in Burton before ending up at Queen’s Hospital at 5:00 pm.
It was great to see so many people lining the streets to celebrate the fantastic work of the NHS with us.
We hope you enjoy these images, which really capture the atmosphere on the day – Happy 72nd Birthday NHS!
