Age Concern Christchurch operates two 14-seater minibuses + wheelchair securing points, that are used to take people to the various Friendship Groups (previously known as Pop-In Clubs) that we operate around the Borough, shopping trips to Sainsbury’s and Tesco, and for day trips to local attractions such as the Kingston Lacy Snowdrop days.
We pick you up from your doorstep and deliver you to the venue, and collect you when the event is over to return you home. Our assistants help you back with any shopping.
Fares are kept as low as possible to ensure that everyone can participate.
The minibus has an electrical tail lift to assist passengers in wheelchairs or using walkers, and is fitted with seatbelts for all passengers. Please note each wheelchair takes the equivalent of two seat spaces.
If you would like to be picked up to go to one of our Friendship Centres, or join one of the shopping trips, or book a minibus for a day outing, please call the Age Concern Christchurch office on 01202 488311 or use the ‘Contact Us’ enquiry form to give us your details and we will contact you to discuss how we can help.
