Local MP Caroline Dinenage has celebrated the news that two local community organisations are set to receive brand new minibuses thanks to government funding.

Last November, the Department for Transport established a £25 million fund to purchase new minibuses and today it was revealed that Lee-on-the-Solent's ICANGO and Gosport Voluntary Action were successful in their bids.

Caroline commented:

"Both of these community organisations provide vital support to our local community and I am delighted to learn that their hard work has been recognised by the Government. These new buses will help to ensure that both ICANGO and GVA are able to go on providing the lifeline that they offer to so many people in our area.

I am very much looking forward to seeing the new buses on the road!"

Caroline has been a keen supporter of local community organisations since her election in 2010 and helped to re-launch the ICANGO buses which received new livery last month.
