Community Foundation for Surrey grant funds Waverley Hoppa Community Transport

13th May 2016

A grant of £4,400 from by the Community Foundation’s Haslemere Challice Community Fund and also the Thomas Trust Fund has supported the Waverley Hoppa Community Transport service to continue to provide accessible and affordable community transport service for people living in rural areas of Waverley.

Hoppa is a lifeline for many older residents and people who are isolated, have a disability or mobility difficulties, a low income or find it difficult to use public transport. This recent grant will ensure the vital service continues to support local people.

We are delighted to support such an active and important service in Waverley This is about local people supporting other local people. The Community Foundation gives donors a chance to connect with their local area and directly benefit local causes based on their passions and interests; whether that be supporting older people, those with disabilities or local sporting projects.- Wendy Varcoe

Steve Forward, General Manager at hoppa says:

“We were thrilled to hear we had been awarded a grant by the Community Foundation for Surrey. The number of people using hoppa is increasing and this money will help us to continue to provide the personal, door-to-door service upon which so many of our passengers rely.”
