Stagecoach East Midlands Environment and Community Week concludes Stagecoach togetherness campaign

10 Oct 2018

  • Activities planned to celebrate our environment and local communities
  • Stagecoach children’s books donated to local schools and libraries
  • Environment and Community Week helps bring month long Stagecoach Getting There Together initiative to a close

 

Bus company Stagecoach East Midlands is celebrating its local communities and the Environment this week. 

 

The week also 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.

 

Stagecoach East Midlands will hold activities to help promote working together as a community in protecting the environment.

 

Charity activity will include setting up food collection points at Head Office and at depots, the food will be donated to food-banks on Friday 19th October.

 

A children’s book called Stagecoach Saves the Buzzy Bees has also been published by Stagecoach Group. Copies of the paperback book whose cartoon characters are based on well known Stagecoach transport vehicles, have been donated to schools and libraries across the region. The book tells the tale of a swarm of bees that have lost their way and have found themselves on board a tram. The day is saved when they are delivered to a field where local children are sowing wildflowers. The story shares the important message that bees are not to be feared and are vital in keeping our crops and plants alive.

 

To help spread the word of the importance of bees and bugs to a wider audience, Stagecoach Group has also developed a video to help teach viewers how to build a bug hotel. The video is available here:  https://youtu.be/47c_E0EdBAk 

As well as celebrating local communities, Stagecoach Group is also focusing on a range of different activities that will help to protect the environment.

The campaign week marks the end of a four-week series of events across Stagecoach called Getting There Together. The initiative placed emphasis on a number of key areas including customer service, safety, wellbeing, community and environment.

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 these books we can have a positive impact on our local communities.”
