  • Stagecoach supports Lord Mayor’s Christmas gift fund.

Stagecoach has unveiled its annual Christmas bus to promote the Lord Mayor of Canterbury’s Christmas Gift Fund, a local charity that benefits people living in the Canterbury community who may be elderly, vulnerable or facing particular hardship.

Lord Mayor BusThe vehicle was launched at the council offices on Military Road where Councillor Sally Waters, the Lord Mayor of Canterbury said: “A very big thank you to Stagecoach for once again giving us this opportunity to promote the Lord Mayor of Canterbury's Christmas Gift Fund – and especially its traditional ‘Open Air Carols’ on Christmas Eve."

“The Charity, set up in 1952, gives grocery parcels and toy vouchers to people who we feel are deserving of a little something at Christmas. The generosity of local people and businesses and the hard work of the committee ensure that people are not forgotten at this festive time of year.”

The Open Air Carols will be sung in Rose Square, Canterbury on Christmas Eve at 18:15.

The bus can be seen on local Canterbury City bus routes until the end of the year.
