Norfolk Christian project bus setback appeal

SPLAG bus breakdown2Christian youth charity SPLAG are the recent beneficiaries of a bus donated to them to run their outreach work in mid-Norfolk. They hope to start work during the school holidays and have now collected the bus, after a dramatic recovery operation on the A11.



Organisers Lyn Milns and Chris Olley went to collect the bus from Cambridge but the journey was a little more dramatic than expected with a breakdown on the A11 which meant stopping the bus and blocking one of the lanes with police controlling traffic while a recovery vehicle was called.



Lyn said, "Foulgers were very good to us and reduced our bill to £348 and their fitters repaired the problem which was a disconnected cooling fluid pipe." This sum was an enexpected expense so Lyn is appealing to anyone who feels able to donate some money towrds the cost. SPLAG hope to re-coop some of the cost to cover the bill this weekend when the bus will be parked at Dereham Railway to promote the project and let people come and have a look around the bus.


Splag bus breakdown1Lyn said, "We are holding these promotion days in July so people get a chance to see the bus and learn how the project will work. We also were hoping this is was going to serve as a way of getting some funds together to cover fuel costs when we go live, little did we know that we would have the challenge of the covering the recovery costs of £348."


The bus will be parked for promotion days at Dereham Railway from 10am - 5pm on Saturday 9th and 10th July. The bus will also be parked at Breckland Leisure Centre on Friday 15th July, it will be there till 8.30pm.


Lyn can be contacted on on or ring Lyn Milns 01362 851158.
