ARTISTIC Morpeth pupils have found a new vehicle for their creative talents — and it is reaping rewards for a local charity.

Youngsters at All Saints First School in Lancaster Park were given an unusual challenge this year when they were invited to design a minibus for Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care.

The vehicle, which has been adopted by the school, is used to take patients to hospital for treatment free of charge.

Children put their artistic skills to the test to come up with colourful paintwork for the minibus and now the winning team of Claire, Ewan, Kirsty and Tia has seen its design in all its glory after the charity’s founder Brian Burnie took the vehicle along to the school.

Headteacher Pauline Molloy said: “We are all delighted with the minibus and the children were amazed to see the design reproduced on such a large scale.

“Mr Burnie brought it to our recent sports day and summer fair for our parents to see and all agreed.”

Pupils have named the bus Rainbow.
