Yellow Buses’ staff dress up to support hospice

NO-ONE can ever accuse the Yellow Buses’ team of holding back when it comes to dressing up.

So when the company took part in a ‘Wear Yellow’ day to promote the work of a Dorset hospice, staff arrived for work in a variety of guises.

None more so than administration clerk Denise King who chose to dress as a punk rock ferret, complete with yellow tail. “It’s been a day of double-takes. People can’t quite believe what they’re seeing,” she laughed.

Meanwhile Marc West, Planning & Schedules Manager, kept his tie but chose to wear it as handband while also going the extra mile and painting his fingernails yellow.

“People are saying I’m making a bit of a habit of this as I’ve also painted my nails pink when we’ve held our annual Pink Day in aid of Breast Cancer Care,” he said.

Workplaces, schools, clubs and churches across Dorset were invited to take part in the ‘Wear Yellow’ day to raise money for the Lewis-Manning Hospice.

Yellow Buses, which also sponsored the day, gave staff the option of wearing something yellow or going ‘mufti.’

Jenni Wilkinson, YB’s Head of Marketing, said: “As always our staff rose to the occasion to support this wonderful charity.”

‘Wear Yellow Day’ formed part of Hospice Awareness Month aimed at raising awareness of Lewis-Manning and other hospices across the UK.
