15 Oct Community Transport Sussex
Community Transport Sussex is a local Charity which provides community transport to local residents who for various reasons such as health and mobility issues, are unable to access mainstream transport.
With our fleet of Blue Bird buses operating across Mid-Sussex, Crawley, Horsham and East Grinstead- we provide over 8000 journeys every month, taking elderly residents to their day care centres and young people with special needs to their schools and colleges on a daily basis.
We are a lifeline for the potentially housebound, those who live in rural areas away from the main bus routes and those who would struggle to access mainstream buses.
All of our vehicles are disability friendly, our drivers pick up our passengers and take them door to door on our Dial-A-Ride service , and we have volunteer drivers who take our members to hospital and surgery appointments and wait for them to take them home. We also can provide a Group Hire Bus for community groups.
Our biggest Fundraiser for 2018 is our Grand Charity Halloween Ball which will take place at the Gatwick Hilton (Ascot Suite) on Friday 26th October. This will be an evening of spooky fun and entertainment with a 2 course dinner, a live auction and a raffle, a Virtual Reality ‘scare’ experience, a Halloween photo booth and much more. Our star item for our auction is a week in a French Chateau for up to 12 people in La Rochelle. The auction includes tickets for Hamilton and Wicked in the West End , Michael Kors watches, a weekend in a Sussex Flint Holiday cottage and much more.
