Richard Steel & Partners are the major supporters of the running costs for the new Age UK Mid Hampshire minibus which can be seen on the streets of Winchester.

Age UK Mid Hampshire is an independent local charity providing support for older people, their families and their carers. Their principle services reflect the needs of older people in the area and include 5 Lunch Clubs a week, their Help at Home scheme including cleaning and shopping plus Information and Advice on the benefits and support available.

The minibus is a vital element to transport the weekly Lunch Club Members around Winchester.  Provided through a grant from the Department of Transport, Age UK Mid Hampshire are delighted with the new vehicle.  Their band of regular volunteer drivers enjoy their role in helping the community and Age UK Mid Hampshire are looking for extra drivers – see their website www.ageukmidhampshire.org.uk
