Carryway has recently supported the internationally renowned Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) by providing two Club Car electric vehicles, free of charge, to support their operations over the next few months.
YSP is the best place in the UK to experience modern and contemporary sculpture, presenting work by some of the world’s most extraordinary artists – including Ai Weiwei, Barbara Hepworth, Andy Goldsworthy and Henry Moore – in over 500 acres of beautiful, historic landscape and six indoor galleries.
Alongside art, nature and the environment are also key areas of focus for YSP, as demonstrated by their approach to “The Weston”, a new visitor centre due to open on 30 March 2019. As with all previous YSP developments, the new building fits sympathetically with the landscape and has been designed to have minimum impact on the site. The new venue features a wild-flower roof and a pioneering low energy environmental control system which will maintain the conditions inside the gallery.
Carryway has donated both a Club Car Carryall 550 electric utility vehicle and a Club Car Precedent 6-seat electric shuttle buggy for use by the YSP team over the next few months. The two Club Car vehicles donated by Carryway will allow YSP to trial the use of zero-emissions support vehicles around the park.
The Carryall 550 will be utilised by teams as a zero-emissions alternative to the existing diesel support utility vehicles, minimising both air and noise pollution around YSP and helping maintain the serenity of the park.
The Precedent 6 seat shuttle buggy will act as a helpful zero-emissions people mover. Being able to transport staff and visitors between remote facilities, including The Weston, will be a great help for YSP’s gallery team. The low noise levels also allow the shuttle buggy to be utilised as a tour cart, with operators able to speak at normal levels, which often is not possible when contesting with a commercial diesel engine.
Gemma Adams, YSP’s Head of Development, said: “Improving our green credentials is extremely important to Yorkshire Sculpture Park, so we’re very grateful to Carraway for the loan of two electric vehicles. The buggies will also provide staff with essential and efficient access around the 500-acre landscape.”
Elliott Kirk – Carryway Marketing Manager said “Yorkshire Sculpture Park is an asset to the local area and Yorkshire as a whole. YSP is a favourite for many of our team at Carryway, who visit and enjoy the park frequently. It is great to be able to support YSP in any way and we are proud to be associated with them. We hope these zero-emissions vehicles will prove helpful over the next few months, improving both guest experience and operational support for YSP.”

The Carryway buggy was a lifesaver – and that’s no exaggeration! We were racing in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, which is a 45 mins support race just before the start for the big 24hr race. Our garages were about 2km away so getting all our gear to/from the pitlane for the race was made so simple because of the buggy! And it would have taken (the team) ages to get there and back! We are enormously proud of our new buggy and the livery made for it. It helps us stand out and helps raise our profile, not to mention being an essential team donkey.”
Thank you Carryway for supplying the buggy for us at Chatsworth this year. All went well and no issues at all – it was a definite improvement on the equipment supplied last year by a different company. Happy to use you again for next year .
Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.
Our open day event is a very important day for us, and it makes life much easier to have a relationship with a company (Carryway) that we can rely on each year.
Carryway are always a pleasure to deal with and their drivers are always friendly and professional. It takes a little bit of worry out of my job knowing that I can rely on your good service.
Many thanks to the team, especially Adam who was friendly, helpful and professional.
It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.
We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
