Three local mothers have opened a new charity fundraising pop-up shop at Yate Shopping Centre dedicated to helping local charities hit by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The unit, at 1 North Walk in Yate Shopping Centre, has been provided on a free basis for three months by the Centre’s owners.
Andrew Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre Manager, said: “We are always delighted to support the local community and it’s great to be able to assist when local people are using their own time and initiative to raise funds for much needed causes. We hope that the new pop-up will be hugely successful and significantly increase awareness and donations to the charities involved.”
Green Community Travel are delighted they have a third new minibus. The West of England Combined Authority Local Growth Fund has awarded them four brand new minibuses. Hagrid and Mikey B joined last year, they have just collected Luna, are are hoping that Sirius will join soon.
The new minibuses have Euro-6 engines, which are much healthier for the environment, as well as air-conditioning. Click below to read more.
