Rural and small town “shopping bus” offers social therapy disguised as “shopping therapy”
Residents near City of Kawartha Lakes are getting ready for a 2nd trial run of The CKL Shopping Bus… a link between small communities in and around Lindsay. Trial #1 hit a loop in and west of the CKL ; this week, stops include Omemee, the ‘famous’ Bigleys’ and several other stops that can’t be reached by neighbouring communities. if you don’t have wheels. Make no mistake, whether you shop or not, the ‘therapy ‘ is real. It’s no coincidence that Mike Perry, coordinator of the CKL Shopping Bus trials, is also Executive Director of the Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team.
