New mini-bus presented at Catalyst AGM
In October 2010 Catalyst made a grant of £10,000 to MS Clacton and District Branch towards the cost of a replacement minibus.
It was a long hard battle for the group to raise the additional funds needed to purchase the bus but in June 2011 the new mini bus was officially launched on Clacton Pier with the Clacton Gazette and council representatives attending.
Sheila Avery (Chair) and Mike Robinson Branch (Vice Chair) brought the bus along to the Catalyst AGM in April to show Christine Hayward (Chair) and Peter Fitt (Company Secretary).
The MS Society offer help, advice and support to MS sufferers and their families and the bus will be used to transport their members around the community and to attend regular luncheon clubs.
