A local charity is set to benefit from a year of fundraising support from January 2024 – thanks to a scheme from Morebus.
The Dorset bus operator has launched its Charity of the Year 2024 initiative, and is inviting applications from causes based in the areas Morebus serves – with the closing date set for Sunday 15 October.
“We know there are many charities who do wonderful work for the communities where we operate, and we’re keen to give them our full support,” said Nikki Honer, Morebus head of communications.
“It is important to us that we support a local charity because many of our customers and our team live in the area and directly benefit from the work they do. We are asking eligible organisations to visit our website and tell us how we can help them throughout 2024. Once nominations close, we will ask all our colleagues to vote for their preferred good cause.
“Our chosen Charity of the Year 2024 will benefit in a number of ways. We will help raise awareness by covering a bus back and on-board coving with their branding and details on how to donate, and we’ll also provide additional marketing support.
“Our team will spend the whole year raising funds in a number of ways – including special raffles, Christmas jumper days, and donation tins in our travel shop.
“We estimate the total value of this support to be in excess of £15,000 – so hope it can make a difference to people locally. Charities should get in touch, by 15 October, and let us know how we can help.”
