Karl Wilton said: "Yesterday was a very exciting time for us at the North West Vehicle Restoration Trust working together with Arriva to show enthusiasts around five of their Merseyside depots."

Enthusiasts got the chance to be treated like a VIP for the day, as they got the chance to go behind the scenes at Arriva topped off with transport from depot to depot in  vintage buses provided by the members of North West Vehicle Restoration Trust.

We managed to raise more than £600 pounds on the day which will be donated to Zoës Place hospice in West Derby, Liverpool.

Thank you to all that attended on Sunday who made it a huge success.
