Stagecoach donates 30 books in Manchester

Children at Francis House Hospice in Didsbury can now enjoy tales of Bobby the Bus, Stanley Supertram and Molly the Megabus after local operator Stagecoach Manchester donated 30 copies of the specially commissioned book A Very Special Family Party.

The book tells the story of Sir Brian Souter’s 60th birthday party, using different methods of transport operated by Stagecoach.

Talking about the donation, Christopher Bowles, Stagecoach Manchester MD, says: “We are always looking for ways to support Francis House, so when we heard about the creation of the children’s book we were keen to donate some to the hospice.

“Our drivers and staff are taking part in numerous fundraising activities throughout the year, but this book gave us the opportunity to give something directly to the children of Francis House.”
