Swindon’s Bus Company is offering its support to local charities, schools, sports teams and events organisers as part of a good causes initiative.

The firm's Community Fund is a dedicated resource for backing local causes with funding, marketing help, free travel or the use of its buses for events. 

General manager Andrew Sherrington said: “At Swindon’s Bus Company we’re proud to play an integral role within the local community.

“As well as providing bus services across, we endeavour to support and raise awareness for those doing excellent work on behalf of those living here. 

“The Swindon’s Bus Company Community Fund is open to everyone - from charities to sports teams - and we encourage anyone who needs a helping hand, however big or small, to apply.”

To apply, groups should visit Swindon’s Bus Company’s website and provide details about their cause, what they need, and the difference this support might make to their organisation. Winners will be announced in January. 

Previous beneficiaries include Swindon Domestic Abuse Support Service, Westlea Primary School and Swindon Music Trust.
