Sponsor bus scheme

A COMMUNITY transport service is offering businesses the chance to promote themselves on their vehicles and support the cause in the process.

Go START was set up in January to provide transport links for hundreds of pensioners, school children and people with disabilities in the Sudbury area.

Thanks to support from the community and a recent £100,000 grant from Babergh District Council, the group will be able to buy two new vehicles, taking its fleet up to four, including a mini-buses.

For an agreed donation towards Go START, businesses are being offered the opportunity to place their company details or logo on the doors of the vehicles.

Group founder, John Phillips said: “We have spaces for company details on the doors of our vehicles, which we would like to offer to local businesses.

“It is our long-term aim to become self-sustainable and this is just one more way we can raise money to ensure our survival.”

Go START’s buses provide access to doctor’s surgeries, shops and leisure facilities as well as schools and charitable organisations.
