Stagecoach

Bus driver helps epilepsy charity

26 Jan 2016

Local charity Epilepsy Lifestyle has received a cheque for £413. The money was collected on board the ‘Santa bus’ by Stagecoach bus driver Brian Newton who wanted to help raise funds for the charity in the run up to Christmas.

Brian, who’s worked as a bus driver in Eastbourne for the last two years, said “A huge thank you for the generosity of the public locally for helping raise £413.

Being Santa and driving the bus was really great, I think it brought a lot of happiness to adults and children. It was also great to help out such a worthy charity and be able to help them support someone who may need a monitor so that their family can rest easy when they’re asleep.”

Epilepsy lifestyle is an Eastbourne based charity improving the lives of children and adults diagnosed with epilepsy in the local area through the provision of potentially life-saving monitoring equipment.

Marie Baker, the charity's chairperson said “We were absolutely thrilled that Brian wanted to donate the money raised to us. It means so much to us and the families we support.

We fund night time monitoring equipment for children and adults in East and West Sussex diagnosed with epilepsy. These monitors really do have the potential to save lives.”
