Cllr Tim Aker MEP pays for free bus service in Thurrock

UKIP's Cllr Tim Aker MEP has put on a free bus service through a foundation he launched last year.

The Aker Foundation has given bursaries to college students and is now paying for a free wheelchair-accessible bus service from Aveley and Upminster.

Aker is using his councillor allowances to fund the foundation and the bus service is delivering on one of his election pledges.

If you live in Thurrock and believe you have a good cause worthy of funding you can apply to the Aker Foundation through his website.
