Community Connexions welcomes a new addition to its fleet. Thanks to the generosity of Tidal Training Ltd and Tidal Training Direct Ltd, Community Connexions now has an additional accessible minibus to help transport the most vulnerable in Gloucestershire.
CEO, Paul Riddick, said ‘This additional vehicle will allow us to assist more people to attend vital health appointments, to get essential shopping or to visit loved ones. 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. Demand for our services is increasing and this vehicle will allow us to serve more people, which is fantastic news. We are very grateful to Colin Frensham and Clare Seed of Tidal for their very generous donation.’
Colin, Founder Director of Tidal Training Ltd and Clare, Founder Director of Tidal Training Direct Ltd said ‘We are delighted to support Community Connexions in providing these essential community services and facilitating connections for those in need in Gloucestershire. In addition to supporting key medical appointments and basic needs such as shopping, Community Connexions has offered a lifeline during Covid-19. 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’
