Our lovely minibus 'Daisy' has been a rum old girl, taking elderly and disabled people out and about on a daily basis for the past eight years. She's served us very well but now she's just getting a bit 'ty-red' out, and really needs a good rest.
A new minibus, with 16 seats and wheelchair accessibility, will enable us to continue to provide our vital community transport services in our local community for many years to come.
It will be used to take our vulnerable, and often lonely, passengers on weekly food shopping trips to local supermarkets, and on social outings e.g. to the theatre, to garden centres and for Sunday lunch.
Passengers getting on to our minibus may feel a bit down and worried about not knowing anyone, but they get off feeling uplifted and they've made new friends!
With more people living longer, and on their own, demand for our services is ever-increasing. We really need your help to keep people connected with their community and reduce their feelings of loneliness.
Beverley is a beautiful place to live, work and visit and it's also a lovely spot to exercise!
I'd like to set-up a parkun - a free, weekly timed 5km run - for people to get out and enjoy the countryside and to bring people into Beverley for a regular event.
Possible locations would be the Westwood pasture or the racecourse.
