Help for community groups offered by bus company

Posted onPosted on 8th Jun

Trentbarton is offering up cash donations, sponsorship or its time and resources to local good causes.

The Trentbarton Together Community Fund was put on hold soon after its launch just before lockdown in 2020. Now it is welcoming applications from sports teams, schools, charities and other local groups.

The bus company will support at least one good cause every month, with the successful applicants chosen by a panel of staff.

It could be a local sports team needs some help funding new equipment, a community group needs some support staffing an event, or a school would like some help teaching young people about bus use. Voluntary services and support groups that need a helping hand can also apply.

Jeff Counsell, managing director at trentbarton, said: “When we launched trentbarton together back in February last year we of course had no idea what was around the corner. The first lockdown put many things on hold, including trentbarton together.

“All through 2020 and into 2021 we have been reminded of the importance of the roles played by the local groups, charities and networks of people who help each other when help is needed.

“Now, as lockdown lifts, trentbarton together is back to help out the sports teams, community groups and local schools who get in touch and let us know what support they need.

“We won’t be able to help everyone, but we will make sure to select a worthy cause each month. It won’t always be about money. If our team is needed or the loan of a bus would make a big difference then we we’d love to help out.”
