Staff at Yellow Buses who paid for the privilege of wearing festive pullovers raised £200 for Julia’s House, the Dorset and Wiltshire children’s charity.
Drivers, engineering and administration staff at the Bournemouth-based business needed little encouragement to wear the gaudy garments.
Caroline Attreed, corporate fundraiser for Julia’s House, visited the bus depot to receive the cheque.
Fiona Harwood from Yellow Buses said the company was committed to helping local charities.
She said: “Our staff are great sports and always do their best for our charity days.
“Julia’s House does fabulous work and gives practical and emotional support for families caring for children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, providing frequent and regular support in their own homes, in the community or at its hospice.”
Caroline said: “Julia’s House is 95% funded by community donations, we only receive five per cent of our funding from the government.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for local families with life-limited children to get the care and support they need, when they need it.
“Yellow Buses have supported us before and we are always grateful for the efforts of their staff.”
