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.”

We visited Warrington Town Hall to meet Cllr Tony Higgins, after being awarded a CIF grant by Warrington Borough Council.
