We want to be at the heart of our communities. So we contribute to the city’s rich cultural life with our own programme of community activities.
This year, we added to our collection of community buses – launching a Music Bus, to celebrate the city’s lively music scene, and a Rockinghorse Bus, to promote the local children’s charity close to the heart of many colleagues and customers. We also worked with Kemp Town Carnival and Paddle Round The Pier to help make their events accessible to all.
We work closely with charities who reach out to every part of society – including the elderly, street homeless, young adults with learning disabilities, children who need championing and the emergency services. We’re helping homeless charities to provide bus travel for their service users to get to medical and housing appointments, and women refugees to attend cookery classes.
Possability People‘s Geraldine De Moulins said: “The bus company’s hard work to help host an accessible space meant lots of disabled people could enjoy the Kemp Town Carnival. It shows how important it is to think about accessibility and disabled people’s needs, and we’re pleased that Brighton & Hove Buses always strive to set a good example”.
David Samuel of Paddle Round The Pier said: “The level of commitment the bus company continues to give is second to none. From their early patronage of the Disabled Access Beach, to the launch of the Paddle Bus three years ago, having a local company with such a great community and charity ethos is a tremendous boost for our city.”
These are just some of the local charities and community activities we support. If you would like to discuss possible support for your group, project or event, contact Desna Tatler.
