- BOPPER BUS XMAS PARTY AND CHEQUE PRESENTATION
A great time was had by all the Bopper Bus kids at their Christmas Party held at The Bridport Leisure Centre. The excitement was added to by the presentation of a cheque from The Lions of Bridport for £500 to the Bopper Bus. Many thanks to Peter Garlick and Peter Bonner of The Lions for turning out on such a cold evening for our ‘photo shoot’. The Bopper Bus will return in January.
