Mearns Community Transport

Laurencekirk Lunch Club and friends held a treasure hunt and barbecue on Sunday, September 4, to help raise funds for the purchase of a new minibus for Mearns Community Transport.

Laurencekirk Lunch Club are just one of the many clubs and organisations using the

vehicle,

However, it is showing signs of age, and a campaign is under way to try and raise the £45,000 needed to purchase a fully accessible minibus. The existing one is currently used by Laurencekirk Lunch Club, Laurencekirk Pensioners, St Cyrus WRI, the local schools, Laurencekirk Out of School Club, Fettercairn Church, Laurencekirk Church, Social Services, Laurencekirk & District Rotary Club, amongst many others.

The loss of the use of the minibus would impinge on the lives of many individuals in the Mearns area.
