Smiley Bus Awards
46 on the road so far!
The Morgan Foundation runs a programme to provide minibuses to eligible organisations. Smiley Buses are offered to organisations on the understanding that they are shared with other supported groups in the community.
The vehicles are supplied either as standard, or fully adapted for use by physically disabled passengers if required. Recipients are carefully consulted on their needs to ensure the correct adaptations are achieved and all buses are finished with the Morgan Foundation Smiley bus logo and the receiving organisation's name, logo and contact details.
