New Wheels for University of Suffolk Students’ Union
University of Suffolk students will now be able to travel in style to and from events and sports fixtures in their fully branded minibus, recently supplied by our Ransomes Europark team .
Our Chairman, Ian Twinley, handed over the keys to Students’ Union Chief Executive Sarah Tattersall and Sport Projects Manager Sarah Dooley, while students eagerly awaited its arrival.
Sarah Dooley submitted the request to the University’s Foundation Board for funding for a minibus. She said “For years we have been hiring minibuses on daily or monthly deals with local companies but our new bus gives us an identity and is something we can all be proud of. We are beyond grateful for the support of Ian and his team at John Grose in readying the minibus for use, and to the University of Suffolk Foundation Board for helping us achieve this goal.”
Sarah Tattersall, added “ The bus has already been used for football, netball and course trips and thanks to its distinctive design you will certainly notice us on the road. The Foundation board have been amazing this year. Their support will continue to improve the student experience at the University.”
The minibus will be used by competitive sports teams as they represent the University of Suffolk in BUCS (British University & Colleges Sport) as well as the Most Active Students program, student led societies and other SU events. University staff will also have access to the bus for student trips and events.
