Chris, a regular BAT Bus member, uses the BAT Bus twice a week to visit the Castlepoint Shopping Centre. Chris has suffered with Parkinson’s disease for the last 15 years and is now totally reliant on his full time live in carer, Joachim. Without the BAT Bus calling for Chris and Joachim they would need to book an accessible taxi to go to the shops which can be expensive.
“By using the BAT Bus I can get out and about and not feel so isolated, everyone on the BAT Bus is so friendly and I have made many new friends. Also, my carer can come with me as I need to be pushed in my wheelchair. We have also been out on several BAT Bus outings which I have really enjoyed” said Chris.
