Bus Stop


A Dundee organisation which provides support to people living with addiction has received vital funding from a local company.

Bus Stop was launched in 2009 in a bid to address the growing addiction problem in the city. Volunteers travel around key locations on a Monday and Thursday evening offering a hot drink and a meal as well as advice and information to people living with addiction.

The charity has a single decker bus which has become a regular sight in the city and Ross and Liddell has donated funding so a muffler can be bought for its generator.

Gordon Kiernan, of Bus Stop, said: "We would like to thank Ross and Liddell for its generous donation to Bus Stop.  

"We are fully self-funded so we applied to the bursary scheme in the hope of receiving a donation to purchase a muffler which can be fitted over our generator. The bus can be parked in one of our locations for some time as we talk to the people that stop by to see us.

“We are keen to keep any noise to a minimum to avoid  disturbing the residents of our community during this time so the new equipment we are able to buy with this funding will make a huge difference to Bus Stop."

Ross and Liddell specialises in property management and maintenance, as well as providing a comprehensive range of residential and commercial services, including sales, lettings, surveying and insurance.

Now in its fourth year, the Community Bursary Scheme was launched to provide support to organisations that make a vital difference in their community.

Irene Devenny, Managing Director of Ross and Liddell, said: “Addiction is a problem in many communities and it is very encouraging to see groups like Bus Stop taking steps to try and support people who are in need.

“The volunteers do an incredible job funding and running this organisation and it’s important that this work continues.

“We are thrilled to provide funding to Bus Stop and we know the money will be put to good use in order to further enhance the service it can offer the city.”
