The Toyota bus has been donated through a sponsorship arrangement with the Australian Hotels Association SA.

Northern Respite Care Services manager Peter Hall said the donation is exceptionally generous.

“Good transport is very important to us, both for reliability and safety,” Mr Hall said.

“I am sure our groups and volunteers will enjoy many kilometres of happy motoring, thanks to this wonderful donation.”

Northern Respite Care Services operates with the support of the Lyell McEwin Volunteer Association and offers three programs for clients – home visits, a Friday ladies outing group and a Wednesday men’s outing group.
