Community transport works across the Christmas period, even on Christmas day, to provide those who would otherwise be alone with access to family, friendship, company and independence over the holidays. This December, we’re going to be sharing the stories of our members who go above and beyond at Christmas.
Lesley Hargreaves, Access Plymouth
We at Access Plymouth are very busy in the run up to Christmas, taking people to Christmas parties, social gatherings, and of course shopping!
On Monday 11th December our fleet of busses bought our customers to our Annual Christmas Coffee morning where we hold our Grand Christmas Draw. Our Customers are very generous and really enjoy contributing to the prize table, from hampers to gift vouchers and scrummy tins of biscuits!
The Coffee morning is a really lovely and festive event, and we are aware that for many people this is the closest they will get to a Christmas Day celebration. We will be offering a couple of late night shopping dates for our Scooter users, some of whom come in on our transport, and the overall ambience is already very festive!
