We have received a significant donation from Mr Brian Cobb of Ipswich towards the restoration of this vehicle. The donation by Mr Cobb, who was a wartime evacuee to Rothley, comes as a result of an agreement by the late Mrs Barbara Cobb that the money should be used in a manner that would bring pleasure to children.

The total raised for this coach now stands at £22,600, although this does not yet include all the gift aid due in relation to recent donations. We now need to raise the remaining £12,400 to enable the coach to be finished in as short a time period as possible so that the sight of three fully restored teak coaches at the GCR can become a reality.
