The president of Royston Women’s Institute AM group has presented a cheque for £600 to Royston & District Community Transport.
The cause was the WI group’s chosen charity for 2018, and president Pat Morritt was delighted to hand over the sum to David Wherrell, manager of the transport scheme.
The presentation followed a talk given to the group by Mr Wherrell about the transport scheme, and one about bubble cars.
David said: “We are always extremely grateful for donations to help with our running costs. Last year we made more than 12,700 journeys and covered more than 223,000 miles taking our clients where they need to go. “Without grants, donations and our fund-raising efforts, we wouldn’t be able to provide such a valuable and much-needed service.”
Royston & District Community Transport offers door-to-door transport for people living in Royston and surrounds who are unable to use conventional public transport and do not have the use of a car.
