Go-Ahead subsidiary Morebus has reinstated its partnership with Bournemouth Town Pastors to provide the organisation with complimentary transport on its buses.

The pastors are Christian volunteers who head out onto the streets and listen, talk and provide practical support to people in need.

It comes as clubs and restaurants reopen across Bournemouth and more people head out onto the streets.

“Many people are experiencing nights to remember once again,” says Morebus’ Clair Walker. “But there are times when some need the kind of support offered by Town Pastors – and it does a wonderful job here.

“The pastors cover a large area over the course of the weekend, so we’re delighted to be helping them in their endeavours by allowing them to travel across our network free of charge.”

Adds Garry McDermott from Bournemouth Town Pastors: “Since lockdown restrictions were eased, we’ve seen a tremendous up-turn in the number of people enjoying themselves here – and we’re always on hand to help those in need, wherever necessary.

“We’d like to thank Morebus for this wonderful gesture, allowing us to freely move around the town to help as many people as possible here. Although we are a group made up of local Christians, this isn’t about religion – it’s about providing support to anyone who needs it, regardless of faith.

“Thanks to Morebus, we’ll be able to cover greater distances and hopefully provide  more comprehensive support here in Bournemouth.”
