Jumper joy as bus drivers raise cash for charities

08 Jan 2016

Five charities are set to benefit after Stagecoach Yorkshire drivers donned their best Christmas jumpers to raise money.

 

Drivers from across Stagecoach Yorkshire's depots got involved with the festive fundraising that now means, with a top-up from the company itself, a number of local and national charities will share a total of £950.

 

In Sheffield, the Ecclesfield depot raised money for Pathways, a local education charity that works with children aged under 16, and the Holbrook-based team chose the British Heart Foundation after suddenly losing a colleague to a related illness last year.

 

In Rotherham the Rawmarsh depot wore their woolly jumpers in aid of Bluebell Wood Hospice, while the Barnsley depot opted for Barnsley Hospice.

 

And Chesterfield drivers selected the town’s Ashgate Hospice as their charity of choice. 

Paul Lynch, Stagecoach Yorkshire managing director, said: “We were proud to support our colleagues with their fundraising and even more pleased that so many wonderful charities now stand to benefit from their efforts.”
