Staff at bus company trentbarton, along with its customers, have raised thousands of pounds for a charity which helps young people with cancer.

Bus drivers, colleagues and customers have raised more than £5,800 for their charity for 2020 and 2021, the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Staff have fundraised across the pandemic years for the charity, through initiatives including a golf tournament, a Euros football raffle, an Easter raffle, numerous bake sales, a football shirt raffle and more.

Money has also come from trentbarton’s Namesake campaign, where people can name a bus after a loved one for a donation.

Each year around 130 young people aged 13 to 24 are diagnosed with cancer in the East Midlands.

Teenage Cancer Trust funds units and dedicated spaces at hospitals in Derby and Nottinghamshire.

The money raised by trentbarton will be used to fund specialist nurses, units and support teams.

Caroline Bacon-Webster is one of trentbarton’s staff charity champions who has organised fundraising.

She said: “I’d like to thank all our colleagues and customers who got involved in supporting the very important work of Teenage Cancer Trust.”
