BUMBLEance

What does BUMBLEance provide?

At BUMBLEance we know how stressful it is to transport a child who is sick, so BUMBLEance is with families every step of the way, with the comfort and safety of the children as our number one priority. The BUMBLEance service is the first of its kind in the world. It has all the amenities of a regular ambulance but it includes the all-important extras to make a child’s journey as safe, comfortable and entertaining as possible!

Allowing kids to be kids!

BUMBLEance help children and their parents/carers travel together. This allows kids to just be kids and parents to just be parents! Parents can relax and exclusively tend to their children’s often complex needs en-route, reducing stress and anxiety. Each BUMBLEance is fitted out with state-of-the-art entertainment systems that provides a welcome distraction and delivers smiles to the children. BUMBLEance cater to all children irrespective to ability or disability and ensure inclusion for all as BUMBLEances can cater to wheelchair/buggy/stretcher needs.

BUMBLEance service is the first of its kind in the world, ensuring each child has a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable journey. 

All fundraising goes directly towards the operational costs of running our BUMBLEance service. There are many ways in which raised funds could help BUMBLEance as a charity. To give some examples:

  • An Angel Trip costs on average €400.
  • Services and repairs are carried out often, and every 6-months new tyres are needed for each BUMBLEance. It costs €600 for one BUMBLEance every 6 months. €4,200 is the cost for all 7 vehicles to get a new set of tyres every 6 months.
  • An average BUMBLEance trip is 180km, with each tank of fuel costing €100.
  • The back of each BUMBLEance is entirely kitted out with full entertainment systems to keep children calm and distracted. A piece of entertainment in the BUMBLEance, such as a PlayStation, costs €500. With each game costing between €50 - €80.
