First Leicester

First Leicester – Since December 2015 First Leicester have been supporting our work by offering free bus travel to our most vulnerable clients.

This could be;

  • a family who’ve had to move away from a distressing situation but are now struggling to get their children to school…
  • a local person who can’t afford to travel to visit a sick member of their immediate family in hospital…
  • someone who is working towards a positive future after a period of hardship but doesn’t have the funds to travel to a job interview…
  • someone who needs to access other vital support services or a food bank but has no means to get there …

The free bus travel can really make a difference.

The company has also helped us to put on Poverty Action events by providing a bus to use as an information hub, and we’ve also hosted a stand at their fun day in September.
