We are still looking for a double-decker!
Can you help!
Could you donate a double decker bus (or minibuses) to a charity? Do you know someone who can?
Here is a letter from the Director of Kidsco; do visit their website link below.
Kids Company is a charity offering support to exceptionally vulnerable children. Many live with worry for their parents’ well being as their carers struggle with mental health difficulties and addictions. In order to give the children resilience we address their practical and emotional needs.
We provide food, clothing, if needed somewhere to live and psychotherapy. The purpose of our therapeutic intervention is the help the child make sense of the chaos in their lives but also to give them the opportunity to play and be a child again.
We would like a double decker bus so that we can convert it into a therapeutic play-space for children. We could also do with minibuses as we pick up children from school at 3 O’clock in order to take them to our centres where they are offered food and help with homework.
If you have a vehicle to donate, bearing in mind that we don’t have to drive it and can leave it permanently in a space, please could you donate it to us or sell it very cheaply.
Your redundant vehicle could help transform a lot of children’s quality of life and give them experiences of joy often denied them.
If you would like more information please visit our website www.kidsco.org.uk.
We are very much looking forward to hearing from you.
