A Christmas campaign has raised a grand total of £1,829 for a local charity, thanks to the generosity of passengers who travelled on the specially decorated 'Santa Bus'.
Throughout December, Santa was behind the wheel of a Stagecoach bus, which served all areas across Havant, Portsmouth & Waterlooville, raising money for Sam's Haven, a charity who provide short respite holidays at a Haven Holiday Park, for families who have children with a life threatening or terminal illness.Colin Ashcroft , Stagecoach Operations Manager for the area said that the traditionally decorated Santa Bus, complete with festive music and gifts for children, and driven by Santa himself , proved popular with customers, particularly families.
Paul added ‘It’s amazing how a three or four-day break can make a world of difference to these families".~
