ADL raises £1,600 for two charities

Alexander Dennis welcomed an estimated 3,000 people to its Guildford-based factory when it held an open day earlier this month.

The event was held in support of two local charities, Challengers and Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care, with just short of £1,600 raised for their causes.

Tours of the plant, vehicle displays and rides, specialist talks on electrical systems and hybrid technology, and build-a-bus activities for children were just some of the attractions put on for visitors by a team of 40 volunteers from the company’s Guildford team.

Production supervisor Claire Barrett, who led the organisation team, says: “I feel very honoured to have been involved in the open day, seeing so many people enjoying themselves, taking part in the activities, being curious and asking questions about the products and systems we use.”
