All competitors will be asked to raise money for community bus services – an announcement about the number 60, which served Livermead and the St Lukes area of Torquay is expected in the next few weeks.
“Community bus services serve some of the, hilliest parts of bay. A great many people rely on the services to get out and about. For some it is their only lifeline – their way of getting out of the house and socialising. We need to ensure that community bus services can be provided for those that most need them and we are hoping that this event will help make that a reality.” Simon Sherbersky, Lead Officer of Torbay Community Development Trust
