Yellow Buses goes the extra mile again for dads

YELLOW Buses will be joining in the Father’s Day celebrations again this weekend.

The award-winning bus company will be holding a special Carbon Stoppers day to mark the event on Sunday June 17.

As with the company’s weekly ‘Thank You Thursday’, every trip taken on the day will contribute to a separately administered Community Chest.

Yellow Buses has committed to donating at least £300 from the six Carbon Stopper days, including Father’s Day, taking place in June.

Jenni Wilkinson, Yellow Buses’ Head of Marketing, said: “Dads have a special place in all our hearts.

“This is our way of celebrating fathers everywhere as well as giving a much-needed cash boost to a local worthy cause.”

Carbon Stoppers was jointly launched by Yellow Buses and the Daily Echo in 2008.

To date a total of £8,780 has been presented to 37 local charities and good causes.
