A mobile facility that comes complete with air conditioning, a lounge area, sound system, disco lights, a TV/film area, computers, a kitchen with hot water and fridge, generator and electric hook-up, plus awnings on both sides and tables and chairs to create an outside area.

  • Fundraising events
  • Remote teaching

Driver Requirements:

A driver must be ‘named’ and this person must fulfil the following requirements:

  • We require drivers to take a training session with us to ensure they are familiar with the vehicle and competent at driving it. There is no additional charge.
  • The Driver Safety Checklist must be completed.
  • A scan or photocopy of the named driver’s driving licence (photo card only) will be required.
  • We also need access to your driving licence details via the ‘share my driving licence’ website at gov.uk/view-driving-licence. Once the process is completed you’ll be given a ‘Check code’ to send to us.
