When it all Began
Reverend Peter Hudson, the Methodist minister in Maidenhead, realised there was a need within his community for transport for those with mobility issues. He started a campaign to engage the local community in a project to both raise money and to give practical help to form a transport service for people with restricted mobility in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
A Year Later
After a year of fundraising, People to Places began with two second hand mini buses, two paid drivers and one office employee, and the organisation was registered with the Charity Commission, all within our first year.
Our First Milestone
To mark our first five years as a charitable organisation, a special celebration was held and we were honoured by the presence of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh. A presentation was made to Rev Peter Hudson in recognition of the essential role he played in the establishment of the service.
We Were Official
People to Places was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee and re-registered with the Charity Commission.
Our biggest supporter
Seiko UK became a major supporter of our Charity by providing a priceless donation when they started hosting People to Places at their new head-office, in Maidenhead.
