After our appeal for funding to repair Bertie, we are delighted to report that he is back on the road. Bertie is an accessible minibus, with passenger lift and space for one wheelchair.
On the photo, Bertie is on the right and Winston is on the left. Thank you so much to everyone who donated and thank you to Burtonwood & Westbrook Parish Council and Winwick Parish Council for responding to our appeal. Special thank you to our wonderful volunteer, Paul Diamond, who sorted this out for us!
We are trying to get our accessible minibus, Bertie, back on the road. The repairs will cost about £1500.
Bertie has a lift and carries a wheelchair enabling us to help residents who may otherwise struggle.
We are working hard delivering shopping and medicines during the COVID-19 crisis and a second bus would be invaluable to help share the workload which is increasing.
If you would like to make a donation to help with the repairs and the overall running of this valuable community service, here are the ways you can do it. Thanks for your support
Our work during the COVID-19 outbreak is mentioned in the Community Transport Association Blog…
“We now support our community pharmacy by delivering medication for them as well as shopping for groceries up to £20. We’ve also signed up to help the council deliver food parcels to people and have offered to support Warrington foodbank with similar work.”
