Trentbarton makes wishes come true

Bus drivers and colleagues from Trentbarton have raised almost £25,000 for the children’s charity When You Wish Upon a Star, which makes dreams come true for children living with a life-threatening illness.

The charity was chosen by staff and customers as Trentbarton’s charity of the year for 2016 and again in 2017. With the last of the fundraising now finished, the grand total raised is £24,768.

As well as many other fundraising activities, Trentbarton’s namesake initiative, which sees buses named after loved ones for £100 or more, also contributed to the fundraising with £2,400 donated.

Jeff Counsell, MD at Trentbarton, says: “It’s been an incredible two years of partnership with When You Wish Upon a Star.

“It’s a marvellous charity doing magical work and it is no surprise that our staff have been generous with their time and energy to enable more and more wishes to be granted.”

Nicola Brien, Corporate Fundraiser for the charity, says: “It’s been such a pleasure to work with Transdev, we are thrilled and can’t thank then enough for their incredible efforts throughout our partnership, helping us to continue making wishes come true.”
