Passengers travelling vintage raise money for Cash For Kids

08 Jan 2015

The recent operation of a vintage Routemaster bus in Dundee has raised money for Radio Tay's 'Cash for Kids'.

During December, Stagecoach Strathtay were operating a vintage Routemaster bus on routes 73/73A between Ninewells Hospital and Monifieth.  On Christmas Eve, the company donated all fares taken on the vintage service for the day, as well as any additional donations kindly offered by bus passengers and staff.

A total of £282.43 was collected for the charity on Christmas Eve, £191.20 of this was from the bus fares during the vintage bus operation and the remaining £91.23 was through kind donations from passengers and staff during the day.

Stagecoach East Scotland Marketing Manager Sarah Elliott said: "We're proud to have raised money for such a worthwhile cause.  Our thanks go to our passengers who contributed, either by directly donating money on the bus, or indirectly just by paying their normal bus fare on the vintage bus on Christmas Eve."

Lynda Sword, Charity Manager for Radio Tay's 'Cash for Kids' said: “Cash for Kids was delighted to have the support of Stagecoach at Christmas. Even in difficult financial times, our local community pulls out all the stops to help the children who need it most. I’d like to thank everyone involved in organising the Vintage Bus fundraising on Christmas Eve.  Without the help of local businesses, Cash for Kids would be unable to assist the children in our area who need it most. ”
