Our 2021 Festive Charity Partners 

We're continuing our support for Aoife's Sensory Bus, the amazing charity who have created a mobile sensory bus for children and young people to use across schools and communities in Ayrshire. 

Our team of elves will be accepting donations for Aoife's Sensory Bus on the 4th and 5th December at our Santa's Grotto Bus. 

This year our amazing team of bus drivers, engineers and office staff came together to collect donations for the Night Before Christmas Campaign who support more than 16,500 children and young people from across Ayrshire, Dumfries and Galloway to Glasgow. 

We've extended our mission Christmas campaign to Cumbernauld & Kilsyth this year by collecting donations for the Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Care.
