The new minibus is a IVECO Daily 3.0 Agile which also has a disabled access facility which is crucial in enabling those local residents who are unable to use public transport to attend local hospitals and GP appointments. ‘Our Centre’ transport services are also used for fun days out for the elderly and those suffering from dementia.
Every 2 years Taylors hold a charity garden party for customers, staff and friends and the funds collected, around £2000, has gone towards this replacement mini bus costing approximately £10,000.
Alan Taylor – MD of Taylors Transport said “I was keen to help ‘Our Centre’ replace their vandalised minibus as I know that many local people rely on their services and I think it shocked us all to see the images of the burnt out minibus. All the vehicles are named after a flower and the Taylors donated vehicle will be named Carnation as it was the favourite flower of my mother Sheila Taylor.”
