who are we?
We are a small local charity dedicated to serving all those who require mobility assistance whilst completing their day to day lives within Bury Town Centre.
We are situated in a central location with easy access to The Rock, World Famous Bury Market, Millgate Shopping Centre and all the local amenities.
We are completely independent of local government funding and alongside our staff members, we have a dedicated army of volunteers who staff our building six days a week. They help provide all our services and fundraise to cover all our overheads.
