Young people are backing a major fundraising campaign to buy a new bus for North Berwick Day Centre for the elderly.
The Joinery Workshop Project at the town’s ‘Space’ youth facility has designed and built a Bus-ometer to measure the amount raised, which so far stands at £16,000 on the way to the £60,000 target.
A day centre spokesman said: “The present bus is starting to show its age and it’s costing more and more to keep it on the road.
“Whilst East Lothian Council helps with the costs of running the day centre, they don’t cover the essential transport costs, so the bus and its maintenance are not funded.”
