Carbon Stoppers Helps Another Charity
Posted on: 21/05/2018
A home for younger disabled adults is the latest recipient of a donation from the Yellow Buses/Daily Echo Carbon Stoppers initiative.
Livability Talbot Manor said the donation will enable the people that use the service to visit shows and hold themed parties.
The centre in Talbot Avenue received £200 from the scheme that has given out £30,000 in the last decade.
Each week Yellow Buses holds a ‘Thank You Thursday’ when every trip taken by passengers on the day contributes to a separately administered Community Chest.
This money is then donated to a charity within the community and dozens have benefited over the years.
Talbot Manor was built in 1890 as a Barnardo’s Home and is now part of the national charity Livability, with 12 residents.
Dee Parsons, manager of the home, said: “The residents love to go and see shows and have parties and this money will go towards that. We’re extremely grateful for all donations that we receive.
“We provide an environment where individuals can grow and make choices. Residents have the opportunity to participate in individual or group activities and make their own choices wherever possible.”
Amylee Foot from Yellow Buses said: “The Carbon Stoppers initiative has been a great success for ten years.
“It has enabled us to make donations to wonderful causes and Livability Talbot Manor is a great charity doing important work.
“Ultimately our passengers make this happen and we’re very grateful to them.”
Livability Talbot Manor is one of 32 registered care homes run by Livability.
