Thank you to Pershore & District Round Table for their generous donation.
Pershore Volunteer Centre operates 2 mini-buses, which are available for other charities and community groups to hire. When not on hire the Centre uses these mini-buses to run a number of services transport people from Pershore and surrounding areas to wide variety of venues, including the weekly shopping trip to the Co Op, fortnightly trips to the lunch club at St Andrews Centre. In the year to March 2018 the centre undertook 2,500 passenger journeys; all using volunteer drivers.
Eric Wiles -Chairman of the Volunteer Centre said “the mini-buses are expensive to buy and maintain and we are incredibly grateful for the generosity of the Roundtable for their help to support one of our mini-buses”.
In recognition of the Roundtable’s support the minibus will soon be carrying their logo, so look out for it around town.
“At Pershore & District Round Table we are committed to helping the local community. By making this donation to your fantastic organisation, it is a great way for us to reach out to the whole community, particularly vulnerable people who rely on your service so dearly. It is a pleasure for us to help in some way and hopefully we can continue to work together in the future.”
