Helping keep the Community moving

Rama Life is proud to be supporting not-for-profit organisations in South Petherton and surrounding communities within the South Somerset District, with access to affordable minibus hire.

How is Rama Life helping?

We have raised £26,000 for a minibus and all the costs associated with running it. We have purchased the lightweight version, that can be driven on a category B licence (normal driving licence), so it is available to most drivers – including those that do not have a minibus licence.

Our Transport Manager will be organising the day to day running of the bus: Organising safety checks, service & MOT appointments, bookings etc.   They will work alongside other members of the Rama Life team, ensuring that everything is done correctly and in accordance with our aims and objectives.
