Minibus Fund Update – March 2019

Can you help?

As part of our current 5 year plan we are working towards having our own transportation so that we can take small groups of children on scheduled and spontaneous trips that are less accessible via public transport.

We launched our fundraising efforts aimed at purchasing a school minibus last year following suggestions from parents during our strategic planning process.

Our target is £15,000. This will cover sufficient downpayment towards purchase of a 9 seater Ford Turneo minibus (total cost £30,000) including termly safety checks and all servicing. The school intends to cover the cost of annual insurance.

We are fundraising for this initiative through our sister charity The EMAS Foundation.

To date we have received a number of generous donations totalling: £6600. We are applying for further funding via the Foundation and we hope to soon be able to make a smaller downpayment on the bus that allows us to receive and begin using it sooner than hoped.

We continue to fundraise to reach our target in order to maintain payments over the 5 year purchase period.
