Mini-Bus Crowd Funder

Somerville has launched a crowd funder to raise money for a, much needed, new minibus

Our minibus is getting very old and requires a lot of investment in order to make it mechanically sound. The cost of maintaining the minibus is increasing every year.

The minibus is used for various offsite initiatives that we are able to provide for local children, young people and the wider community. Not having a minibus would prevent us from offering these opportunities.
