New minibus added to Community Connexions’ fleet

Community Connexions has added an additional accessible minibus to help transport the most vulnerable people in Gloucestershire.

It will allow the charity to assist more people to attend vital health appointments, get essential shopping and visit loved ones.

The acquisition was thanks to a donation from Tidal Training Ltd and Tidal Training Direct Ltd.

"Many of us take transport for granted but older, disabled or those who are socially or rurally isolated rely on our charity for their basic needs, especially now with the vaccination programme," said Paul Riddick, CEO of Community Connexions.

In a joint statement, Colin Frensham and Clare Seed, who founded Tidal Training Ltd and Tidal Training Direct Ltd respectively, said they are delighted to support Community Connexions in providing essential community services and facilitating connections for those in need in Gloucestershire.

"Community Connexions has offered a lifeline during Covid-19," they added.

"All at a time when fundraising and raising awareness is most difficult. We hope that Community Connexions continues its beneficial and impactful services with the support of the local and business community."

With more than 30 years' experience, Community Connexions tackle physical, mental, social and rural barriers to provide reliable, safe and accessible transport. The team is made up from qualified drivers and trained volunteers, dedicated to providing transport to help enable independence, inclusion and participation.
