Alan has something to crow about

BUS passenger Alan Crowe can now travel as much as he likes for nothing – after winning a Yellow Buses Glo Card valid for a year.

He bought a raffle ticket as part of the company’s annual Pink Day, which raises money for Breast Cancer Care.

This year the Yellows raised £2,377 for the charity and the free travel pass was the top prize on offer.

Alan, from Kinson, is a regular bus user and said the Glo Card would be extremely helpful.

He said: “I use Yellow Buses all the time and bought the ticket because it was for a good cause, but I never expected to win.

“This will save me a lot of money over the year and I’m absolutely delighted with it.”

Gareth Edwards, Yellow Buses’ Customer Services Manager, said: “We made a record amount on our Pink Day thanks to staff and all our passengers.

“The raffle was very popular and I’m pleased that one of our regular customers won the top prize.”

The Pink Day has been held by the Bournemouth-based company for 11 years and thousands of pounds have been raised.
