Double win for Poole bus user Lisa


BUS user Lisa Taylor hit the jackpot twice when she won two Yellow Buses’ competitions in the space of a week.


Lisa, a reception coordinator with Poole Citizens Advice Bureau, won a day’s free travel after entering the bus company’s Monday Funday contest.


Then, just days later, she was named as the winner of tea-time treats in the Yellows’ weekly T-Time competition.


“Amazing” was Lisa’s one-word reaction after tea, cookies and doughnuts were hand-delivered to her office in Wimborne Road, Poole.


She added: “I use the 1b everyday to get to and from work but didn’t expect to win two competitions in a week. It’s a lovely surprise.”


To enter the Facebook T-Time contest you have to travel to work on a Wednesday with the Yellows and simply respond on social media or send an email.


Previous winners include Bournemouth’s Homebase store, funeral directors Miller Bros & F P Butler Ltd, Bournemouth’s Heathlands Hotel, LV=, Northbourne Surgery, Bournemouth Council’s PR team, Poole CAB, Primark, Connect in Southbourne, The Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Curtiss-Wright in Christchurch, Castle Cover and Taylorcocks accountants.
