Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The top image, is of ECW bodied Leyland Olympian B740GCN in it's original Northern General livery. The middle image is of the same bus wearing Go Ahead Gateshead livery (Northern General after deregulation). The final image is of the bus in a private independent operator's livery, Herberts Travel of Bedford, some 250+ miles away from it's native North East. I'm hoping to get the funding to bring her home to the North East to restore her into the original Northern General livery, with the hope of showing her off at historic and vintage vehicle rallies. I thank you in advance for any donations received.
