Our Centre helps people with learning difficulties. One of our current minibuses is 14 years old and needs replacement

New stretch target

A replacement 3 year old minibus will cost £14,000.  We are working very hard to raise as much as we can with collections in supermarkets, grant applications etc, but the reality is that we will probably only make about £7,000 this year.  If someone would match fund that sum, Our centre Users would be able to be driven to work in a more modern, safer minibus a year earlier 

The New Blendworth Centre exists to promote the cause of people with learning difficulties. We help these people to gain self respect, confidence and self esteem by providing horticulture work in our large nursery and garden centre and also by off site and outreach work at local businesses.  We have around 47 centre users who are collected and returned to their carers in our three minibuses and this application is for funds to help us replace one of those minibuses which is now 14 years old

 The Centre  operates as a VAT registered business and The New Blendworth Centre Association, who are making this application, is the charity which acts as the "Friends" and "guardian angels" of The Centre.
