Stagecoach links community with range of events

Stagecoach Manchester has been working with local charities and community centres to connect members of the community as part of its Bringing People Together campaign.

The operator launched a four-week campaign which included a series of indoor events to support retirees living in Greater Manchester, helping them to attend community get-togethers and meet with friends using the city’s transport links.

Stagecoach worked with four local community centres to host a range of events, such as indoor curling and exercise classes. Each session gave attendees the chance to enjoy an activity that they may not usually take part in and meet new friends.

Elisabeth Tasker, MD for Stagecoach Manchester, says: “As one of the region’s biggest transport providers, we have a huge role to play in bringing people together and connecting them with the services they want and need.

“It is clear community centres are the linchpins of the local areas they serve in many cases, and in the last four weeks, we’ve seen first-hand just how important events to get people out of the house are.

“Whether you know someone who could benefit from getting out and about, or you yourself could do with a cuppa and someone to talk to – there are community groups and regular events across the region that can help.”
