Chatsbrook, based in Ketteringham, near Norwich would usually be driving around in the Mini greeting customers. But not using it in lockdown, the firm decided to put it to better use.

The Mini is now being used to transport cancer medication to Spire hospital.

The firm is also launching a competition to design an image for the Mini roof which captures the spirit of Chatsbrook and should include a rainbow as a symbol for a continued appreciation of the NHS.
