Pershore Volunteer Centre will utilise £250 given to them by Pershore Rotary Business Club to provide on going support to members of the community who do not have their own way to get around.

It provides a vital lifeline for supermarket trips and other social events for many elderly and disabled people who do not have their own transport.

The minibuses even have a lift on the back to allow wheelchair users to board.

Eric Wiles, spokesman for the centre, said “Each of our Minibuses costs us over £4,000 per year just to put them on the road, before a wheel turns.

“The support of local organisations is vital to the continuation of this essential service.

“We are very grateful for the continued support of the Rotary Business Club and for their generous donation.

"We do charge a fare but it's far lower than a commercial rate and we receive a yearly grant from Worcestershire Country Council to help cover costs.

"The grant was part given to us to tackle social isolation in rural parts of the county, which are transport service provides.
