Some of you may remember that RUSH Academy had a bad bus crash in February whilst a party of us from Springfield Church was out in Kakamega, Kenya. Miraculously, no-one was killed but the bus was a write-off.
Well the great news is that they have managed to buy a new bus!
They had thought that it would cost over £30,000 for a new bus but they have managed to buy a brand new 37 seater bus for £20,000. They have afforded it because of a very generous gift of £10,000 and a loan from RUSH UK of £10,000. This still means that they need to raise the £10,000 but it at least gives them some time to do so.
In fact Joan Hadlow has said that one of the ways that she is raising money is through having a 3 course Chinese meal at the Chinese Fondue in Whyteleafe. If you are interested then let me know and I will send you the details.
Andrew has told me that the bus is getting lots of great use already and its larger and better than the old one – which is a great blessing.
