Annual Running Day for
Merseyside Heritage Transport Charity
THE Merseyside Transport Trust (MTT)
will be holding its' running day event, on Sunday, 10 September 2017, 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).
The event will feature services between:- Liverpool, Pier Head, Mann Island,
Aigburth Vale, Walton, Penny Lane amd 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.
Lee Wolfe, Events Officer for The MTT is leading the event & has been involved
with the group for over 10 years. Lee said:- "This event is now in its'
12th 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 & 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 visit their
