Our Location

Borrowing Costs

We have chosen to offer our minibus for a donation fee rather than a traditional hire rate. Scout groups and Girlguiding groups are able to book to borrow the Van!

One key factor that influences this approach is insurance. As a volunteer-based organization, we operate under specific insurance policies that require us to offer the van on a non-profit basis. By requesting a donation, we can cover the operational costs associated with maintaining and running the Van while adhering to these insurance requirements.


Your donation not only helps us maintain and service the Van but allows us to keep the Van accessible to all our members and other groups. 


Should you have any questions or require further information about our donation-based pricing, please feel free to contact us.
