Bus company Stagecoach East Midlands is rounding up its Environment and Community Week with donations to local food banks.
The week marks the end of a month long Getting There Together initiative across Stagecoach companies within the UK which has also focused on customer service, safety, wellbeing and inclusion.
Food collection points were set up at Head Office and at depots across the region, the food brought in by staff has been donated to local food-banks on Friday 19th October.
Lincoln Head Office and Depot collected a great deal of food and presented it to Lincoln Community Larder, a registered charity which aims to relieve poverty in the Lincoln area through the provision of basic nutritious food and other basic amenities to those in need of short term help.
Stagecoach East Midlands Managing Director Matt Cranwell said: “We understand that our services are important to local communities. Whether we’re taking people to work, taking them shopping or to visit their families we play an important part in our passenger’s lives. This is why we want to give something back and hope that by raising funds for local charities and donating to food banks we can have a positive impact on our local communities.”
