Rev. Steve Mann presents a cheque from the estate of Bert Mitchell, which will be used for our new blue wheelchair van. November 2012
12 November 2012, Rev. Steve Mann Superintendant of the local Methodist Churches presented Jo a cheque for £40,000 which has come from a legacy left by Bert Mitchell.

This money will fund our new blue van which is equipped with wheelchair access.

This van will allow us to transport our wheelchair bound members to activities and events, and is goig to make a huge difference to many people.
Here is a phot of our van, all wrapped in ribbon for the presentation. Bert Mitchell's name is painted on the front in his memory. We were going to nickname it "Bert's Bus" but Rev Mann suggested "The Burtmobile" which definitely sounds better.
