Neighbourhood Care Soham is making a bid to keep beloved Nellie, the Ely Tuk Tuk in the East Cambs area by trying to raise £4000 in just 30 days.
Back in January, Mark and Teresa Harrison, owners of Ely Tuk Tuk decided to make the tough decision to sell Nellie and put out a Facebook appeal to find new parents to the unique business.
Partnering with Viva!, The Sohams
Wendy Lansdown, a Neighbourhood Care Worker said: “We have heard how tough people find it to get out and about in Soham and really want to make a difference.
“When we heard about Nellie being up for sale it sounded like the perfect idea to bring people closer together and be able to use Nellie to take them to coffee mornings, drop-in sessions and shows held by Viva.
“We already have volunteers who would be interested in driving it and we know there is a demand.”
Volunteers have already come forward to drive the Tuk Tuk and any extra money raised from the fundraising efforts will be used to keep Nellie maintained.
Soham Library will house a fundraising meter and you can give to the project https://www.crowdpatch.com/communityinvestors/2211/nellie4soham/
