Cheshire’s PlusBus service unites family on special wedding day

ECT in Cheshire’s PlusBus service battled heavy traffic to transport a special guest to a family wedding this week. Sarah Williams, who has restricted mobility issues, was collected by ECT in Cheshire’s fully accessible PlusBus from Vivo Care Choices, a respite centre in Ellesmere Port, to attend her brother Lee’s wedding at The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel in Pulford.

Sharron Brooks, Sarah’s mother commented, “I was so pleased the PlusBus service was able to take Sarah to her brothers’ wedding. It was great that she could be part of the celebrations and see her brother get married.”

Sharron Brooks, also said: “We had a wonderful day at my son’s wedding and the PlusBus service helped bring my family together on this special occasion. Without the great service offered by PlusBus, it would have been nearly impossible for Sarah to attend, so I would like to say thank you for their help and support in making it all possible.”

ECT in Cheshire’s PlusBus service provides door-to-door transport for people who find it difficult to use public transport. The service is available to people who have mobility difficulties and/or are aged 80+. A single journey costs £3 and a return just £5 per person.

Ian Dibbert, General Manager of ECT in Cheshire commented: “Sarah’s journey to her brother’s wedding is just one of the many journeys our PlusBus service completes every month for members of the local community. Even though most of our trips are more routine, such as visits to the doctor, shops or to see friends and family, we’re always thrilled when we are able to do something outside of the ordinary like bringing a family together on such a special occasion.”
