THE PRIME MINISTER rode around the town on a minibus to celebrate the 25th anniversary of a charity. 

Theresa May was in Wokingham to celebrate the work of Keep Mobile, a bus company helping disabled people get around town. 

Mrs May was greeted at the headquarters of the charity in Evendons Lane by Chairman Fred Rule and manager Sally Gibson.

Theresa May, MP, said: "It was great to meet Fred and Sally and learn about the fantastic work of Keep Mobile. By helping so many people to live as independent a life as possible, their volunteers make a real difference to people’s lives and a vital contribution to the local community. 

"I’d like to congratulate them on their 25 year anniversary and I hope they will enjoy many more years to come."

Wokingham MP John Redwood followed in the footsteps of the Prime Minister by taking a trip on one of the buses on October 27.

He spoke of his pride at the service Keep Mobile provide. 

“I would like to thank all the volunteers and donors for the work they do. They ensure elderly and others in need of help can get to surgery appointments, to the hospital, to Day Centres and to the shops," Mr Redwood said.

"They provide an excellent and much valued service in my constituency.”
