A minibus has been specially adapted so that it can transport patients to and from a private treatment centre in Letchworth.
Representatives of the League of Friends handed over the nine-seater Citroen Relay – which has been adapted by coachbuilders Warnerbus – to the Ernest Gardiner Treatment Centre, a charitable service run by the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation.
The modifications include an extra high roof for standing, a lift for wheelchair access and handrails.
Warnerbus director Andrew Wallis said: “It’s been a pleasure to work with the Foundation and the League of Friends.
“We hope the bus will give the treatment centre, and the community, many happy years of service.”
