Smiley Bus Awarded

A long-running Merseyside charity which provides vital services to blind and partially sighted people received a brand new Smiley Bus from the Steve Morgan Foundation.

Bradbury Fields is a charity which was actually set up in 1857 and now provides a range of services across Liverpool, Knowsley and Sefton.

These are based around rehabilitation offering advice, training and support to help blind and partially sighted people find new ways of dealing with the practical and emotional difficulties they may suffer as a result of losing their sight.

The charity’s two previous minibuses had been in use for ten years, and were becoming unreliable, and so the Steve Morgan Foundation stepped in to provide its 63rdSmiley Bus.

This will enable the charity to continue to help visually impaired people to participate in activities throughout Merseyside and the North West, such as swimming, the gym, a walking group and attending a variety of other activities.

The Smiley Bus follows previous funding over three years provided to Bradbury Fields by the Steve Morgan Foundation for the role of an Activities Co-Ordinator.
