We want to give a big shout-out to everyone who has donated to Demelza Hospice Care for Children by over-payment with cash for their bus fare. The amount raised so far will fund 1,316 hours of professional nursing care for children with a serious or terminal condition in a hospice setting.
Demelza are a local registered charity providing specialist care and emotional support for children with serious or terminal conditions and their loved ones, so they can enjoy their time together as a family, for as long as they have. Every year their work is a lifeline to over 750 children and their families throughout Kent, South East London and East Sussex.
We're still accepting cash on our buses and will continue to, but if you pay with cash and don't have the exact fare - we'll donate your change to Demelza; our 2020 charity partner. You can find out more about our exact fare scheme here.
So a big thank you to all our customers who have helped raise this vital support for the charity at a time when their fundraising has been seriously restricted by the pandemic. ❤️
