yelabus’ Blackwater Pharmacy run ends

Today marks the end of yelabus’ Blackwater Pharmacy run.

Over the 14 weeks of support we estimate that we deliver about 2,000 packets for them to people in our community.

We are hoping to support our community again by providing community transport to our community.

We have reconfigured our buses to comply with the 1 meter plus rule for social distancing and adopted enhanced cleaning methods . This allows 8 passengers plus a driver.

So if you’re a group looking for help transport members, please contact us.

Board Member/Trustee wanted

At yelabus we are a charity that provides community transport to north east Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire using 2 mini busses with tail lifts.

We are looking for people to help run the organisation, we are particularly looking to get onboard younger members. We meet at lunchtime every second Tuesday in Yateley attendance could be by video call.
