Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire has chosen Rock FM’s Cash for Kids as its official charity partner in Lancashire.
The two-year partnership will see the Stagecoach drivers and team get behind the charity, which is part of Bauer Radio’s network of local charities that benefits local, disadvantaged youngsters. Fundraising activities already in the pipeline include raffles and other events across the region.
Nikki Thompson, charity manager at Rock FM’s Cash for Kids, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Stagecoach has adopted Cash for Kids and we are excited to see what it has planned. All the money raised will stay in the Lancashire area to support children and young people and will make a huge difference.”
Elisabeth Tasker, managing director of Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire, said: “A lot of our passengers are young people under 18 and the work that Cash for Kids does to tackle the issues facing youngsters in our communities is a cause that really resonates with us.
“We felt a real affinity with the Cash for Kids vision and we’re delighted to be ‘on board’ with the team and to be partnering with such a fantastic charity, which has such a positive impact on the lives of the young people around us.
“This is just the start of what we’re sure will be a very fruitful partnership and our drivers and the rest of the team are already planning a number of fundraising activities.”
