In January, Mrs Vidy Melber Patron of the Association of Friends of Lord Harris Court presented a new Minibus to the Home Manager Mr Steve Stace. The minibus costing over £30,000 was a gift from the Association of Friends of Lord Harris Court (ALFHC). Steve Stace said he was delighted with the bus which would allow wheelchair users to visit more places.
Vince Pearson gave a blessing to the bus assisted by The Rev WBro David Webster both members of Lodge of Friendship and Care No. 8802. Mrs Vidy Melber paid tribute to all the Lodges and Chapters who have supported the Home for many years and because of their help has allowed the AFLHC to purchase the bus.
David Lawrenson the Chairman of the AFLHC was absolutely delighted that they were able to make the gift and could not praise enough all those who had contributed over many years and those who helped at the Summer Fêtes and Christmas Bazaars. After the presentation a wheelchair resident demonstrated how it all worked and how easy it was to get on board.
