Par Petroleum is proud to continue its support of North East charity, Red Sky Foundation by wrapping one of our fleet in the charity’s distinctive branding.

The 44-ton Scania fuel tanker hit the road in July, and for the next 12 months, will help raise awareness of Red Sky Foundation’s mission to improve the lives of people needing cardiac care who are born with, or develop, heart conditions.

As well as showing our support via the eye catching addition to our fleet, we will donate 5p for every kilometre the branded tanker travels. This financial contribution will help the charity provide lifelong support to those with cardiac conditions and their families.

Sergio Petrucci, founder of Red Sky Foundation, said:

“Like almost all charities, we rely heavily upon the support of businesses. I’m thrilled to be working with the fantastic team at Par Petroleum to launch our first charity tanker.

“It looks absolutely amazing, and it’s going to spread our cause far and wide. The tanker will be spotted in various locations and I’m looking forward to seeing how many people we reach.”

Stuart Hardy, operations director at Par Petroleum, said:

“From our first contact with the charity over three years ago we were bitten with the Red Sky bug. Sergio’s passion and commitment is clear to see, it’s so refreshing for a charity with so much transparency. The charity tanker is a great way to cement our partnership and spread the Red Sky Foundation’s message on the North East roads every day.”

Par Petroleum supports the charity via sponsorship, participation and their education project across schools and local communities.

Have you seen our Red Sky branded tanker?

To celebrate the introduction of the charity tanker, we will soon launch a social media competition with Red Sky Foundation. The competition asks anyone who spots our tanker to take and share photos of it on social media.
