Fund raising for a community minibus to transport the elderly around the town and to the local surgery and high street.

Uppingham Delivery stage

pledged of £27,701

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

A circular hopper route one hour in length has been created to link residential areas to the town centre and local surgery which is on the edge of town. Uppingham town centre is on a hill and many of the elderly have trouble walking uphill to town. the Hopper will provide an hourly circular service run by volunteers Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.

What we'll deliver:

  • Buy a new Hopper Bus with disabled access

Why it's a great idea:

Uppingham has over 300 people over 80 years of age.and no regular local bus service

Steps to get it done:

  • Reaching £20k
  • Reaching the first £10k

The acquisition of a Hopper Bus will empower large sections of the Uppingham community, particularly the elderly and the disadvantaged. The Hopper could also be used to assist a wide variety of community groups and charities in Rutland.
