Mystery donation for buses

The much-loved Friendly Transport Service, which serves residents of all ages in the Broseley and Much Wenlock areas, had one of its buses sabotaged in November last year and its DPF filter stolen. However, a kindly anonymous benefactor has helped the Friendly Bus get back on the road.

Friendly Transport CEO Marie Monk-Hawksworth says, “Many thanks to those who donated money, especially to the very generous person or group who anonymously deposited £2,000 into our bank account. We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to our news and the goodwill that has been shown to us by the community, and I’d like to thank everyone!”

As always, the service is appealing for volunteer drivers, either using their own vehicles to take residents without transport to appointments or to drive one of the services distinctive minibuses. Marie says, “Anyone with even an hour or two to spare each week would be welcome!”
