We need a new bus!
In the fourteen years we have been helping the homeless and needy of Chesterfield and Matlock we have used a number of different buses. Clearly we can never afford to buy a brand new bus so we have to buy a second-hand bus. We then convert the internal space to provide a serving area, storage for clothes etc. and most importantly comfortable seating for our guests.
Our current bus is getting a bit long-in-the-tooth. We are suffering with regular breakdowns and expensive repairs. We have therefore launched a campaign to raise the money to buy us a new bus (or rather a ‘new’ second-hand bus!).
We’ve asked Aviva for Support
As part of our campaign we have applied for funding from Aviva’s Community Fund. We will only be successful if enough people go onto the Aviva website and vote for us. So please, please, get voting!
How to Vote
Go to https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/4-1127 and click on the link that says “Register and Log In”. (you’ll find it on the right just underneath the banner telling you how many people have voted for us). Then, unless you’ve already got an account with Aviva, you need to click on “Register Now” so that you can create an account. Fill in your email address, choose a password, and add your name. Aviva will then send you an email message. You need to open this email and click on “Confirm your email address”. This takes you back to the Aviva website where you complete your registration by 1) ticking a box to say whether you’re a customer or not, 2) leaving the box in Contact Preferences blank if you don’t want Aviva contacting you, 3) ticking to accept the terms and conditions, and 4) click on “Complete Your Registration”.
You should now be on a page saying “It’s time to vote”. In the Search Project Titles and Organisation box type ‘replacement bus’ and click search. In the search results click on the picture of our bus. You can then give us between 1 and 10 votes. (We hope you will give us all ten of your votes!). Don’t forget to click on “Submit votes”. You will then have an opportunity to give us further support towards buying our new bus by posting on Facebook and Twitter.
