Annual Running Day for
Merseyside Heritage Transport Charity
THE Merseyside Transport Trust (MTT)
will be holding its' running day event, on Sunday, 11 September 2016, to raise
funds for the upkeep of its' fleet of over 50 vintage vehicles.
This is a rare and unique opportunity to enjoy a ride on some of buses in our
collection, some of which featured at The 'Light Night' event back
in May. The event is also aimed to attract new members, volunteers, sponsorship
and generate interest within the community. This event is in association with
'Heritage Open Days' (HODS).
This year's event will feature services between Liverpool Pier Head's Mann
Island, Aigburth Vale, Walton, Speke Hall and the surrounding areas. Due to
refurbishment works, our event will not be operating from Liverpool South
Parkway Interchange as we have done in previous years.
A souvenir programme and guide to the day will be available for just £5 and any
donations you would like to make to the group would be most welcome.
Steve Kelly, Chairman of The MTT is leading the event and has been involved with
the group for over 30 years. Steve said:- "This event is now in its' 11th
year and has gone from strength to strength using a similar format. We have been
consistently attracting large numbers which is encouraging for a small charity
and always looking at ways to make this event a huge success. All funds raised
at the event will go a long way in helping to keep our collection safe for the
future. We rely totally on donations and the good nature of people."
Buses run generally every 15 minutes starting around 10:00am from Mann Island
and will observe all normal bus stops along the routes.
The event runs from approx.10:00 until approx.4pm. For more information see our
