District council hands over £2,215 of travel tokens to charity

STRATFORD District Council has handed over £2,215 worth of unused travel tokens to Age UK Warwickshire.

Although the council stopped issuing travel tokens a number of years ago when the free bus pass was introduced, they continue to benefit people thanks to the kind generosity of district residents who return them.

Travel tokens were issued but sometimes not always used and are often discovered when residents move house or pass away.

The cash will be used to support the Information and Advice Service for older people, their friends or relatives.

Anyone with unused travel tokens they wish to donate is asked to send them to the district council offices on Church Street.
