Do you have any chocolate items you can donate to our Chocappeal?  We are looking for chocolate bars - any flavour, any size, boxes of chocolates, chocolate biscuits, chocolate drinks, chocolate books, mugs or even cocoa butter beauty products or anything else chocolaty for our chocolate Event coming up in October.  All money raised from our chocolate event will go towards our Save our Shopmobility and Save Our Seats Minibus campaign.  Please bring your donations to the Shopmobility Centre, in Albert Lane, next to Barnstaple bus station. Thank you. 


Save Our Seats - Minibus Appeal

Please help us to raise funds for a new wheelchair accessible Ring & Ride minibus.  Our existing bus has been in service for 10 years and has become uneconomical to keep on the road.

A new minibus would mean that we can continue to provide an efficent and reliable door to door service for the local people who rely on it.

You can make a donation online on our Just Giving Page or come into the Shopmobility Centre and try your luck on our Minibus Raffle.

Every penny counts and you can help us to make a difference to the lives of local people by helping them to remain active, independent and mobile.

See our Minibus Appeal Page for more details.
