Minibus Appeal

Show your support so Veterans can return to enjoying days out when it’s safe to do so.

Covid-19 has been especially cruel to our Veterans. Like many, they have missed out on so much. Before the pandemic, our Veterans enjoyed days out across the country. Specialist minibuses make these trips possible.

That’s why it’s so important that our older minibuses are now replaced with new reliable transport.

UPDATE: We have been overwhelmed with kind donations. The target has now been reached for the new minibus. Any additional funds raised will go where they are needed most and towards days out for Veterans when it’s safe to do so. 

The pandemic has brought huge additional costs, like PPE to keep our Veterans as safe as possible. We still need to raise £55,000 so Veterans have access to a new specialist minibus. Can you help?

In the ‘What prompted your to donate’ box select ‘Minibus Appeal’. You can also suggest a name for the minibus and reason why. Find out more below.




You can make the minibus even more special!

You could be in with a chance of becoming part of Erskine’s history by suggesting a name for the minibus. The bus will bring a brighter future to Veterans in 2021 and beyond.

Suggestions could reflect the history of Erskine. Or new ideas to pay homage to the communities our Veterans and families come from. Your entry can be inspired by anything or anyone. The name of a loved one or a favourite place – be as creative as you like.

The winning entry will have pride of place on the minibus. We will also be offering prizes to two lucky runners up.

Enter before 15th March. Winners and runners up will be contacted by the end of March.

Click Donate, and select your reason for donating as ‘Minibus Appeal’. Type your name suggestion and reason why in the box that opens up, before completing the donation process.

Full terms and conditions can be read here. If you wish to enter without making a donation, please email fundraising@erskine.org.uk with subject line Minibus Appeal, send your name suggestion and reason why (250 words).
