Letham4All are celebrating the purchase of a minibus to support their work in the community. “We are so pleased to have secured funding to purchase our own Community Minibus. Massive thanks to the Robertson Trust and the Guildry Incorporation of Perth who supported the purchase of the bus, along with money raised by ourselves. We just couldn’t have done this without them. We also need to say many thanks to Derrick Allan for his generous donation and also to TayGraffix who kindly made such a great job of putting the logo’s on the bus. ” said Suzie Burt, Board Member. The 17-seater bus is fully accessible, with a wheelchair lift fitted and it can be reconfigured to take up to 4 wheelchairs if required.

Jon Kidd, Chair of Letham4All explained, “We really do want this to be a Community Minibus and we are offering the use of the vehicle to other local organisations to help them enhance their work. Accessing transport can be difficult and expensive, so we hope that the bus will be of real benefit to the community. We are putting a big shout out to anyone who has the category of D1 on their driving license who wants to get involved and become a volunteer driver to please get in touch.”

Volunteer and Board Member Stuart Kerr who will be managing the minibus “There will be a couple of formalities that groups and drivers will need to agree to before using the bus, but it is straightforward. Volunteer drivers need to agree to have a license check and will have to take part in a vehicle familiarisation session before they take the bus out for the first time.”
