Tofield Handivan Society
In 1990, a group of citizens formed an organization to raise funds for the purchase of a Handivan to use in the Tofield area. Their efforts, and generous community support, made it possible to purchase the “Tofield Handivan”.
In 1996, the Tofield Handivan was made available to groups within the community who may not require the lift, and the operational name was changed to “Tofield Bus”. Although currently, day-to-day operations of the bus are the responsibility of Town of Tofield, the Handivan Society remains active and oversees these operations.
The Society has been successful at obtaining grants for the continued operations of the Tofield Bus. In addition, generous donations from the community, memorial donations and fundraising efforts by other groups have supported the continued operations of the bus and van.
Volunteer for a good cause! New board members are welcome! AGM in February. If you would like more information regarding the bus, the Tofield Handivan Society or about making a donation, please contact:
