BAPP backing for Barnsley transport
We want to say a massive thank you to wonderful Weston Park Cancer Charity supporter, BAPP Group, for their incredible support – which includes significant backing of our Barnsley transport service!
BAPP backing for Barnsley transport – and beyond!
BAPP Group provided a significant donation to fully fund the purchase of our Ford minibus which transports patients, for free, between Barnsley FC’s Oakwell Stadium and Sheffield hospitals for cancer treatment each day.
For some patients, challenges with travel to and from appointments can be the difference between accepting and declining treatment which may could save their life. And what’s more, for many people undergoing cancer treatment, safe travel to and from social activities has also been hard to come by in recent months in years.
That is where our transport services from Barnsley and Chesterfield come in. Not only do they provide free, safe travel to and from Sheffield hospitals for cancer treatment and appointments, but the vehicles used have also provided important travel, free of charge, for patients to and from social activities funded and enabled by Weston Park Cancer Charity, our network of partners and our wonderful supporters.

Our bus has also been used on a number of occasions to safely transport patients to and from social activities – including a VIP trip to Leeds Rhinos and a residential trip to Whitmore Lakes in Lichfield, and more.
BAPP have supported Weston Park Cancer Charity for a number of years, pledging and raising tens of thousands of pounds to help make it possible for us to be there, at every step, for anyone facing cancer in our region.
“As one in two people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes, the work of Weston Park Cancer Charity is relevant to everybody. What’s more, friends and family members of staff here at BAPP are among those to have been affected by cancer – making the reasons for our support all the more personal.
“We’re delighted to be able to support Weston Park Cancer Charity’s work to improve the lives of anyone going through cancer in our region.” - Dean Cook, Chairman of the BAPP Group of Companies
We could not be more grateful for your support – thank you, from everyone connected to Team Weston Park!
