Ho Ho Ho How about this for a bumper Christmas Raffle?
You raised £994 towards our replacement community transport minibus.
Thanks to everyone who supported us again this year. From buying and selling tickets to donating fabulous prizes. We could not have done it without you.
We had some amazing prizes donated this year including a signed rugby ball by the Welsh Rugby team and a signed Wales football shirt.
Here is the lucky winner of the football shirt, Rhys Watkins, a project worker for VISION 21 who create employment opportunities for people with learning needs. He is accompanied by his students Howard, Anthony and Franco and colleague Nick Wildblood. The grins say it all!
We were excited to be asked to provide transport for our local Hindu Centre in Splott who offer support to older people in our community. We do love a celebration and jumped at the chance to be involved.
The group had been invited to attend a national gathering of Hindu community centre members for an event celebrating the second anniversary of a well know prayer group.
The event was held in Harrow, Middlesex and over 300 people arrived on the day from community centres all over the UK.
It was a long day for our volunteer Hitesh but he was well looked after and enjoyed joining the passengers in their motorway picnic.
We were delighted to receive a donation of 120 Easter Eggs in the run up to Good Friday.
Here are the folk from The Cardiff North Skills Exchange on a lovely lunch trip to The Anchor Inn in Tintern receiving their Easter Eggs.
If you would like to do some shopping in Cardiff city centre but are unable to use public transport, then our Dial a Bus service could be just what you need.
For £1 each way, our service will pick you up from your front door and take you to M&S in the city centre. You will have three hours to shop before the bus will pick you up from the same spot and return you home. Our buses can take wheelchairs and are fitted with lifts if you have difficulties climbing steps. All our drivers are trained and are happy to assist you on and off the bus, and to take any shopping into your house when you get home. For any customers who need extra assistance we can also drop of at Cardiff Shopmobility, just let us know when you make your booking.

On a wet Tuesday night 34 legs arrived at VEST’s depot armed with enthusiasm and determination.
What else could we do but issue the lovely lot with brushes, buckets and mops and tell them to “get to it team”.
They didn’t disappoint. Within 45 minutes they had scrubbed, mopped, polished and buffed every vehicle in our fleet.
They left amidst the glare of gleaming windscreens and dashboards back to their meeting point at Cardiff Library.
