Bus company encourages reading

Swindon’s Bus Company is providing a bus to be transformed into a festive reading centre at the city’s Orbital Shopping Centre on Monday 9 December.

The operator has got together with the National Literacy Trust and the bus is expected to be a popular hub for those wishing to get together for some quality book time with their children.

“We think Swindon Stories is a vital initiative, helping to tackle low literacy levels,” says Alex Chutter, General Manager at Swindon’s Bus Company.

“As well as providing a festive reading bus for the day, we are boosting the charity’s funds with a donation of £500.”
