COMMUNITY buses have been given a makeover thanks to a donation.

Icango, in Lee-on-the-Solent, is a voluntary service which runs bus trips for elderly people in the area.

Thanks to a donation of £1,000 from estate agent Eckersley White, the buses have been repainted with their new logo.

Volunteers from the service, which works alongside St Faith’s Church and Gosport Voluntary Aid, held a relaunch party and Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage attended.

She said: ‘We all know that local services are under considerable pressure so schemes such as this, which are run by volunteers, offer a lifeline to vulnerable people.

‘We are extremely fortunate to live in a community where people are prepared to give up their time to help others.

‘I would like to commend all of those who work so hard to ensure that Icango can operate.’

Icango operates about 40 trips a month for people living in Lee-on-the-Solent.
