Oxford Tube announces search for Oxfordshire’s best ‘Playground Pals’

10 Oct 2018


Oxford Tube has announced details of a brand-new competition to find Oxfordshire’s ‘Playground Pals’ – those who save parents and carers when they need it most!


The Oxford to London coach service provider has launched the countywide competition to recognise the support parents and carers offer each other as they try to juggle their busy lives and school duties.


Oxford Tube’s ‘Playground Pals’ is inviting Oxfordshire’s parents and carers to nominate the two people who help them on the school run, tell them when assembly is, and offer support at the school gates. The nominated saviours will be in with a chance of winning a day out in London with £250 spending money and return travel on the Oxford Tube. The competition is celebrating Oxford Tube’s group ticket which allows three adults and two children to travel return to London for £45.


The winners will then be treated to a day out in London along with their nominator. The prize includes return travel for three adults and two children and £250 spending money.


To enter parents and carers just need to visit the Oxford Tube Facebook page and say in 50 words or fewer why their two saviours deserve to win the day out in London together.


Karen Coventry, Business Development Manager, Stagecoach, said: “Most parents and carers can recall times they have been running late to get to school and had to message a playground pal to help them out. We wanted to show that we understand how challenging being a parent or carer can be and acknowledge that we all lean on the other school parents. We are delighted to treat the group to a great day out in half term where they don’t have to rush back for pick up!”
