New Minibus arrives at Unique Treatment Centre


A new minibus designed and converted by Warnerbus for patients at the Ernest Gardiner Centre, Letchworth was recently delivered following a successful appeal led by charity fundraisers.

The Citroen Relay minibus was specially adapted to carry patients to and from a unique free private treatment centre in Letchworth Garden City and was handed over to the community by charity fundraisers.

Chris Taylor, Chairman of the League of Friends for the treatment centre said: “We are delighted to be able to support the Ernest Gardiner Treatment Centre and thankful for all the support local people give to the League.”
