On Saturday 29th February, Caradoc Coaches kick started our day tour and holiday program for 2020 with the charity day trip to Manchester.
On behalf of our charity this year, the Shropshire Blood Bikes, we took 2 almost full coaches called Rosie and Jim. With all the usual entertainment on route, including raffles, name the teddy, guess the mileage and a talk from one of the blood bike volunteers, the trip was a great success raising in total £1203.
The breakdown of the money raised is as follows.
102 seats @ £6 per seat equals £612
Coach Rosie made on the day a further £196
*****Coach Jim made on the day a further £265 *****WINNER
A generous donation by one passenger £100
Donations sent to Caradoc by patrons unable to attend on the day £30
From everyone at Caradoc and the Blood Bikes, we would like to thank you all for a wonderful day and a superb donation to a worthy charity. A special thank you to our one passenger (that prefers to remain anonymous) for their very generous donation.
17/12/19 – LU0143 STOTTESDON TO LUDLOW
We are experiencing problems getting into Stottesdon and Bitterley because of flooding and icy roads. Station Road into Stottesdon is exteremly treacherous at the moment with the flood at the bottom and black ice all the way into Stottesdon. If the road is left untreated and it freezes overnight we will not be serving Stottesdon in a morning, the road is just too dangerous to take a coach down especially when carrying passengers.
We are aiming, as usual, to get our 2020 catalogue emailed pre Christmas and postal catalogues sent between Christmas & New Year. The website updates are currently in hand.
More brand new additions to our fleet. 2 x identical twin Temsa’s, one pictured below.
