In order to raise money for the ongoing cost of the new mini bus and young carers, one of our volunteer’s, Wesley, has decided to do something a bit different.
On Thursday 23rd August 2018, Wesley is going to ride the 174 bus route from the first bus which starts approx 5am to the very last bus whioch finishes approx 1am, that’s 20 hours on a bus! As Wes is a wheelchair user, the event will also be used to highlight some of the difficulties faced by disabled people and their carers when using public transport. At some point during the day both the Driver Communications Manager for TfL and some of our Young Carers will be joining Wes on his epic voyage. You can even come and watch Wes on his journey as the route passes the headquarters of Carers of Barking and Dagenham (at 334 Heathway) but what we’d really like is for you to sponsor Wes.
