Fundraising Success

We are delighted to announce that we hit our fundraising target and have been able to buy a new, specially adapted minibus for our service users.

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of members of the local community and organisations who all contributed to us meeting our target and being able to buy our new bus.

Having supported transport is vital for our service users, we can get out and about with our walking, recycling and nature groups and continue to access sports facilities at the local leisure centre.  Having this transport enables us to strengthen our community integration and encourage independence and confidence.  It is essential for us to be able to overcome barriers to access so a huge THANK YOU, to everyone who helped us achieve this.
