Fundraising for Community Bus
Exmouth Community Bus to transform peoples' lives - Crowdfunder campaign now live
College governor Jill Elson has launched a new campaign to raise funds for a new bus for Exmouth and District Community Transport.
Please help fund via: https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/community-bus-to-transform-peoples-lives
The charity offers door-to-door timetabled Ring & Ride services using vehicles with passenger lifts - they go to supermarkets, pub lunches, trips, garden centres, silver screen at Exmouth Cinema. It is for people who have limited mobility, no access to public transport or cannot get to the nearest bus stop, struggle to shop and get to appointments including medical appointments (they can be contacted on 01395 26 66 62 between 10am and 2pm).
Without this service, people would be lonely and isolated. Especially those who have personal care who live independently in their own homes. The drivers are fully trained and police checked and will help users on and off the bus. Users can also bring an escort if you needed.
Alumni member Dale Pendlebury produced the video supporting the campaign and was also able to offer a current student work experience too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQJeL2jIrv0&feature=youtu.be
