Christmas definitely came early for us last year, with taking delivery of our brand new Smiley Bus from the Steven Morgan Foundation!
We have been working alongside the Steven Morgan Foundation since 2016 and they have been kindly supporting us with funding for many of our successful projects, such as the Mobile Bus.
The team along with many of our volunteers and young people began fundraising for our own mini bus, but we soon came to realise that it was going to take a very long time before we would ever be able to purchase a bus that fits our needs. So when we heard about the Smiley Bus project that the Steven Morgan Foundation run we had to jump straight onto it!
After countless funding applications and numerous meetings with them, the anxious wait was finally over. Just before Christmas 2017 we received the amazing news that we had been gifted a BRAND NEW Smiley Bus, what a perfect way to end an amazing year!
Having this bus gives us the opportunity to potentially double the amount of trips for our young people, providing them with support and new experiences while being in a safe and friendly environment.
We can’t thank the Steven Morgan Foundation enough for the support that they have given us over the past 2 years, their support has helped us grow into the amazing project we are today! A big thank you also goes to all the staff team and volunteers at Priority Youth Project who work day in and day out to keep the project up and running and changing the lives of the Young People we work with.
