Our fleet currently comprises of six cars; Louise, Stanx, Emma, Carol, Russell and our most recent recruit Roddy.
The support we receive means we are very proud to be able to own all of our cars outright and each car is specially named with our supporters in mind, to thank or to commemorate them for their incredible kindness and fundraising for our cars.

"Berwick Cancer Cars are fabulous, without them I don't know where I'd have been"
Lynn Adamson, Client and Supporter
Our Current Fleet
‘Roddy’, our first Subaru and exciting brand new addition to our small fleet of cars, was chosen by our committee in recognition of the residents of Roddam Court who each year raise thousands of pounds in aid of Berwick Cancer Cars with their very popular "Roddam Court Christmas Lights" display. Our huge gratitude to Marjorie Read and the residents of Roddam Court.
‘Russell’, named in memory of Russell Toward who was an amazing supporter of our cause and cars. An active member of The Plundering Pirates of the North East Russell went beyond their fundraising activities and hosted many ‘extra’ events, all in aid of our cars. We are proud and thank the family for allowing us to grace our new car with Russell’s name continuing his memory.
Sometimes a supporter goes above and beyond and makes their support for us a passion. Carol sadly lost her fight with Cancer in 2020 but right up until the end she was raising money for our cars with her ‘West End Saturday Lockdown Bingo’. We are proud to have supported Carol through her journey and even more grateful to her for her drive and ability to give local people camaraderie and entertainment in her fundraising activities.
‘Stanx', named in honour of the Berwick Charities Cup to celebrate their amazing fundraising spirit in supporting our Cars! The annual event which takes at Stanks Football Ground (and is played on English Heritage land, nestled into the walls of Berwick-upon-Tweed), runs from May to August. The Berwick Charities Cup proudly celebrate their 100th Anniversary in 2022 and do so much to support Berwick's local charities.
‘Louise', named in memory of Louise Laidlaw, who, along with Eileen Hepple, raised so much for our Cars. These two amazing ladies organised a quiz, bingo and 'grab a gallon' at Maguires at Ord House every Friday night raising funds for us and other local charities. Over 10 years they donated an outstanding £21,400!
