New Minibus for Papworth Trust

Posted by Gillian on 18th December 2019

As part of an ‘Open House’ event at the Papworth Trust’s Cambridge Centre in early November, the new minibus (from Gowrings Mobility) was handed over to the Centre’s customers and team.

Sarah Miller, CEO of Papworth Trust, was there to pass the minibus keys to centre staff.  The event was a great opportunity to invite and thank all the individuals and organisations who supported the
fundraising effort for the project.  The Trust anticipate that the new minibus will make a massive difference to their customers, allowing far more access to activities, events and the community.
