Local Neighbourhood Watch receives Morebus Community Fund support

Posted on: 24/05/2022

Morebus is lending its support to Canford Heath Neighbourhood Watch – an important local initiative aimed at reducing crime and making the area a safer place for residents and visitors. 

The bus operator is also keen to highlight the work the group carries out within the community to help the elderly and the vulnerable. 

”Canford Heath is a popular residential area, and the Neighbourhood Watch team works very hard to help make it a safe and pleasant place to live,” said Morebus’ Josh Burgess.

“The Morebus Community Fund offers local good causes support through funding or complementary travel. The Canford Heath Neighbourhood Watch applied for our help, and we were delighted to provide them with money to put towards some property marking pens and anti-theft purse bells. 

“We hope these items will assist in protecting more vulnerable members of the community and allow them to feel safer. We’re delighted to be supporting such a worthy cause.”

Monique Munroe, from Canford Heath Neighbourhood Watch, said: “We were thrilled to receive the funding and on behalf of the future recipients of the bells and pens we would like to thank Morebus for its generosity.  These may be simple, small items, but we feel they will make a big difference to all the residents who receive them.”

The Community Fund is open to applicants twice a year, during March and September where Morebus will fund or support good causes up to the value of £500.
