Each week Yellow Buses holds a ‘Thank You Thursday’ when every trip taken on the day contributes to a separately administered Community Chest.

The Yellows have pledged a minimum donation of £50 per week to the fund which is available to schools, community groups and good causes in its coverage area.

Since the scheme was launched in 2008 a total of £10,450 has been presented to 45 charities and good causes..

Now Yellow Buses has announced it is to hold an additional ‘Thank You’ day for Mothering Sunday, March 10 .

It means that there will be a minimum £250 Carbon Stoppers cheque from March available to a charity or good cause based around mothers.

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

“We thought this would be a great way of celebrating that as well as giving a much-needed cash boost to a local worthy cause.”
