" HELP BUILD OUR BUS"! Update 18th. August 2018

Would you like to have your very own name on a seatbelt? Would you like to own a part of our minibus? We would like you to help 'Build our Bus'!

Last year we were offered a minibus to purchase at a very competitive price and since then, members of the trustee board have been working to secure the funds to make this purchase. The minibus is a Renault Traffic, 16 seater and EVEN better... It is already branded with the Boys' Brigade Logo.

The costs for purchasing the minibus are as follows:

Purchase Price: £3500.00 Insurance: £750.00
Maintenance for 1 year: £500.00 (estimate)
Road Tax and S11 Permit: £300.00 (approx)

To date we have been successful in raising £3500 towards the purchase and running costs through the charitable grant applications, but this leaves us with a short fall of £1440.00 and this is where we need your help......

We've broken down the minibus into component parts and We would like you to help 'Build our Bus'!

We've priced some we've priced some high priority components for larger donations and some low priority components for smaller donations. Whatever you can afford to give, we have an item to suit your budget! For Example...... (first to pay, first to pick on seats/seat belts, etc,)
