Norwich church crowdfunds to fix vandalised playbus

Alive Church in Norwich has launched an appeal to raise £5,000 to repair its double-decker bus after it was vandalised prior to the vehicle being renovated as a community play bus.

Norwich’s Alive Church was the victim of vandalism when its bus, parked on Armes Street, was vandalised on the morning of Monday, February 12.  The double-decker was one of five or six vehicles vandalised in the area at around 6.30am.

The church had purchased the bus in January with the intention of creating a soft play and adventure area for local primary school children.  But just as renovation work was due to start the bus had three of its windows smashed and the front windscreen also has to be replaced.

Now a member of the church, Jomiy Boulter has launched a JustGiving page with the aim of raising £5,000 towards repairs.

Writing on the JustGiving page Jomiy said: “The people at Alive are trying desperately to make good out of a bad situation and any donation no matter how small will be gratefully received.

“Alive Church purchased a double decker bus which was being transformed into a soft play area for local disadvantaged and disabled children as somewhere safe to play. As work was due to start vandals smashed up and destroyed windows and things which were needed.”
