    What members say:

    “If we do not have a minibus I would be confined to my home” Edna

    “ The mini bus gives me the opportunity to come out and go on day trips” Eddy

    “The Bus helps me do my shopping” Florrie

    “I am looking forward to a new bus as this one is getting more difficult for me to access” Rosemary

    “ I would come here every day if I the bus had a platform lift” Lillian

    “The bus helps me meet up with my friends” Laura

    “ After having my hair done having a lift home helps keep it looking nice” Barbara

    “The bus takes me door to door on dark winter evenings ” Laura

    “ We are able to visit local attractions” Liz

    Sotheby Mews is a day Centre for over 55’s in Highbury, Islington. We provide lunch and activities that support wellbeing and reduce isolation, our client group has grown from 150 to 200.

    In the last 2 years activity attendance has grown year on year.

    Over this time we have been able to offer a door to door pick up and drop off service to our more physically challenged clients with a community Minibus. Our use of the minibus ceases from July 2016, as a result of cuts in the local authority’s budget. We urgently need to raise £20,000, which will help us purchase a used minibus and provide insurance, repairs and fuel for one year.

    The Minibus is a lifeline to both the Centre and our clients!

    With the additional benefit of providing our youth club with the use of a vehicle in the evenings.
