Enthusiasts are being asked to donate to help restore an Accrington Pals-liveried bus this Christmas and receive a specially designed, personalised gift certificate.

The Pals Bus as it is today

The 1975 Leyland Leopard, JFV 295N, is one of the last remaining examples of a Hyndburn Transport vehicle painted in the blue and red colours of the 11th Service Battalion (Accrington) East Lancashire Regiment, better known as the Accrington Pals. The bus is owned by local charity Accrington Heritage Trust, which plans to restore the bus. The vehicle is currently housed at the Town & District Transport Trust in Great Harwood, and it is expected that work will cost around £14,000.
