This year, Stagecoach East Midlands supported Keep Britain Tidy, where local School children had been invited to design new a double-decker bus to promote this fantastic cause!
Primary school children in the Skegness area were invited to learn more about the positive impact they can have on the environment, by taking part in a competition to design a Stagecoach bus for Keep Britain Tidy. The competition marked the return of the Skegness ‘Seasiders’, the popular open-topped buses redesigned by Stagecoach in 2014. Such is their popularity, that a series of books have been released which bring to life the adventures of the buses. The latest story, to feature the fun characters, even has a litter theme.
In addition to offering school children the chance to design a bus, Stagecoach has also undertaken to contribute £500 to the school that produces the winning entry, whilst an additional donation of £500 went to their charity partner Keep Britain Tidy, in an effort to fund an anti-litter campaign.
The competition has been well received, by the participating schools, with over 150 entries.
Winners revealed below....
