Swindon’s Bus Company will be offering its support to local charities, schools, sports teams and events organisers, as part of a good causes initiative.
The local bus operator’s Community Fund is described as a dedicated resource for backing local causes with funding, marketing help, free travel or the use of its buses for events.
Swindon's Bus Company's Operations Manager Paul Coyne said: “At Swindon’s Bus Company, we’re proud to play an integral role within the local community. As well as providing award-winning bus services in-and-around Swindon, 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.”
The Community Fund is open to applicants this December. To apply, groups can 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.
The bus company says the winners will be announced in January.
Previous beneficiaries include Swindon Domestic Abuse Support Service and Westlea Primary School.
Paul added: “Our Community Fund offers a fair support process and allows us to build new relationships with worthy causes across the region."
