We are pleased to announce that the Big Red Bus Club, funded by the Big Lottery, is starting this term, the Life Line project. We aim to support our volunteers and build capacity in our organisation.
As volunteers you will be supported to share ideas, receive training and build a plan and our organisation for our long term future.
Note to all at the Big Red Bus Club
