As most of you will be aware we held a fundraising appeal a few months back and recently purchased a 2010 Rural Transport Bus for Bere Island. The bus is at the Rural Transport Office in Bantry undergoing the necessary tests and should be on the road very shortly. The purchase cost for the bus was €13,200 and we were very lucky to receive a grant of €5,000. Donations and the church gate collection raised a total of €3,255.74 and BIPG contributed €1,734.25. Unfortunately we still have a €3,210.01 shortfall .
We would like to thank everyone who donated to the purchase of the bus so far.
Donations are still welcome to cover the shortfall and can be sent to the Projects Group Office.
