Go North East (GNE) is today (11 December) raising money for Save the Children as part of Christmas Jumper Day.
During December the operator is also decorating its double-deckers and launching a ‘COVID-secure’ socially distanced Santa bus tour across its network, while its staff will don Christmas jumpers and festive fancy dress to spread joy and heighten the holiday spirit.
“Things are a little different this year, so we want to do our bit in helping spread some festive cheer and have challenged ourselves on some creative ways to do this,” says Go North East Managing Director Martijn Gilbert.
“We hope to help get our customers in the Christmas spirit with these activities, and also encourage others to use our clean and safe buses to help keep our region moving, especially as our towns and cities get busier in the run up to Christmas.
“As well as their excellent hard work, day in day out, providing safe and dependable transport services across our region, since the start of the pandemic our team members have also managed to raise a staggering £10,000 for charities, and this is just the latest initiative.
“Please join us on board and also in wearing your Christmas jumpers and raising money for Save the Children.”
