Charity launches new bus with tribute to founder
10:00am Friday 18th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A VITAL community charity marked its new mini bus with a nod to their late founder.
Harwich Connexions unveiled their £42,000 16-seater vehicle last Thursday, with Cody and Evee Double cutting the ribbon.
Their grandfather Les Double founded the charity in 2003, however sadly lost his battle with cancer earlier this year.
The bus will help vulnerable residents go shopping, attend activities and keep hospital appointments.
Harwich Connexions manager Debbie Rotchell said: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to add this new vehicle to our fleet, which will help us to offer additional transport support to more individuals and groups within our community.”
