We operate a community bus service that works all year round transporting people to the places they need to go. The service is open to all, and our passengers include the elderly, children and people of all ages with disabilities and social care needs. We have already purchased the bus, but need £4,000 for essential adaptations including tip seats, non-slip flooring, a grab handle and an all important manual step. We have received a competitive quote for this work, and are confident that this is the best price. If successful, the work can be done immediately, and will ensure that the bus is accessible for all in the community.

What we'll deliver:

  • Freedom of access and mobility
  • Access to the wider borough

Why it's a great idea:

The bus is in use all the time, but is currently difficult for some people to use. We believe that everyone should have the same opportunities, so access is vital. By doing this work, we will ensure that anyone who needs to use the bus can. We cut across need and across communities: we just want to help, regardless of the need and the request, and this will help us to do that.

Steps to get it done:

  • Fit out of bus

NOTE: This is a project proposed by the Lions. It does not quite fit with the agreed programme, but they are important to us and we would like this to be included in the Doncaster Movement. They are experienced fund raisers, and we will be contributing to this project from Council funds.
