David Fuller of Dewsbury is smiling after picking
up a cheque for £500 after winning top prize in Metro's Smile
campaign to help West Yorkshire's over 60s apply for
their new English National Concessionary Bus Passes.
The campaign started in July and Mr Fuller is Metro's August
prize draw winner.
Metro's Chairman Councillor Ryk Downes presented Mr Fuller with
his £500 prize said: "It is important that everyone eligible
applies for a new pass, even if they only use it for local
journeys, because their current Metro Senior, Disabled or Blind
Persons Permit will stop being valid from April 2008 when they will
be replaced by a new English National Concessionary Pass. I would
urge everyone to apply as soon as possible."
All 350,000 people, aged 60 and over in West Yorkshire and all
the county's 20 to 30 thousand disabled and blind people will need
the new English National Concessionary Pass for free local bus
travel in West Yorkshire and throughout England from April next
year. To help make sure they get them in time, Metro has set up an
early application scheme at Bus Station Travel Centres and Post
offices throughout the county.
Further prize draws with a top prize of £500 are also
being held in September and October.
Metro leaflets containing all this information have been sent to
Bus Station Travel Centres, Post Offices and other outlets such as
Libraries and details of how to apply can also be
found on this site.
